With the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Goonies, wouldn’t it be AWESOME if they made an announcement about the long-awaited sequel? Unfortunately, that’s unlikely to happen …but how would you like to see The Goonies on BROADWAY?! I can totally see it working. I’d much rather see a delightful stage production delivered than a sequel or a re-make (GOD NO, ANYTHING BUT A GOONIES RE-MAKE)!
Here’s what director Richard Donner had to say about the future of Goonies:
“We were thinking that (the sequel) for years back, couldn’t do it. Felt like everything we were doing would hurt what we had with the original, hence the musical. But Steven (Spielberg) said something the other day to me that he and Chris (Columbus) were talking about and maybe something — but I don’t think there’d be a sequel. I wouldn’t remake it. If anything it’d be something new and fresh. Hopefully we’re doing this as a musical on Broadway. It took forever to get on Broadway. It was a long, long process but it just got a lot shorter because there’s a great writer/producer (Tim Long) who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment on ‘Goonies’ as a musical and it’s friggin’ great.”
Corey Feldman must be having a party in his head with the possibility of somehow getting involved with this project.
