While celebrating “The Goonies” 30th Anniversary today, Sean Astin hints in his facebook account that a sequel is still being planned. Now a sequel to “The Goonies” is nothing new ’cause director Richard Donner has been planning one for years and even Steven Spielberg is back on board to help out a bit.
Will the whole Goonies cast come back for the next movie? Probably. I would think all the characters from the first movie will be coming back including the Fratelli brothers pictured above. In the photo above is Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano who played the Fratelli brothers from the first film. I think Sean Astin just gave us a hint of what the sequel is about is that the Fratelli brothers are still after The Goonies after all these years.
The question is will Josh Brolin come back as Mikey’s older brother, Brand? Will Corey Feldman come back as Mouth? I hope so and they probably will ’cause there can’t be a Goonies movie without them.
Will Chunk come back being played by the same actor who is Jeff Cohen? I would think so but the only problem is Jeff is no longer an overweight guy so we probably won’t see the return of the “truffle shuffle”. Jeff is real skinny now and Chunk being overweight like that was all part of the humor for the character so he’s gonna be different now.
Andy, Stef and Data would probably come back being played by the same actors as well.
The whole gang will probably return except for Anne Ramsey who played Mama Fratelli since she passed away. I don’t know if Sloth would be able to return ’cause the actor who played that character passed away too so if Sloth were to return, he might have to get replaced by a different actor.
“The Goonies” is one of my favorite films of all time, though. I loved it ever since I was a kid and seen that movie over a hundred times. I hope they make a sequel and it’s probably gonna happen. If it were to happen, I’m sure it’ll happen sometime in 2016 or 2017. They haven’t even got a script yet, I don’t think so they still got a long way to go to get the project off the ground. Making a movie doesn’t happen very fast… they all take small baby steps.
