Return to the Goon Docks: Spielberg writing sequel to Goonies

PORTLAND, Ore. – Coming soon to a city near you: The Goonies 2?

Richard Donner, who directed the original film, told TMZ several weeks ago that a possible sequel was in the works.

This week, however, he said the sequel was Steven Spielberg’s idea, and that there have been serious talks since news broke.

“Hopefully we’re going to get this done, period,” Donner told TMZ. “Steven came up with the idea of doing a sequel after 30 years.

“He came up with another storyline, and he’s right on.”

The original was shot and set in Astoria in 1985.

Donner said if he wasn’t sure if the original cast – including Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Corey Feldman – will return for the sequel.

“If they have any sense they will, if they don’t they won’t,” Donner said.
