According to TMZ on April 5, director Richard Donner was seen signing autographs and answering questions about comic book movies. When asked about doing a "Goonies" sequel, he replied, "If you call 'Goonies' a comic book".
There was a back and forth volley where the interviewer asked Donner questions on whether or not the industry was using comic book movies as a crutch so easily relied upon to make money. Donner mentioned the main focus of the studios is financial which sounded par for the course anyhow.
Donner was also asked if any of the cast members would be returning for the sequel and his response:
"Hopefully all of them".
For those who haven't even seen the first "Goonies" film, written by Stephen Spielberg, starred Sean Astin and Josh Brolin, where young kids come across a map in their attic that leads them to the coastal underbelly of their home town. Also referred to as the "Goon Docks". The synopsis was basically to find buried treasure to save homes that were about to be launched into foreclosure.
Rumors on the blogosphere had been running around for a good while now, but with a response from the director himself makes the idea reassuring.
