According to Cinema Blend on Monday, director Richard Donner was approached about updated information in regards to "Goonies 2" and had mentioned it was Steven Spielberg's idea to do the sequel. Earlier in the month there was a buzz going around where Donner had mentioned that the Goonies sequel was still happening. This created a stir on the internet and now Donner had his own away of answering the questions by feigning forgetfulness, in a joking fashion, of the original film.
Though Donner gave quite a hazy dialogue to those quite curious, it's not entirely new that the idea of "Goonies" sequel was a mere idea and a possibility for long time. The director is hopeful that Josh Brolin and other cast members the cast and crew will come back if they "have any sense" and that it's "up to them".
For those who aren't familiar with the film or perhaps it was a little bit before some peoples' time, the original film involved a community of children who happened along a map in the attic and happened to pick up where Chester Copperpot had left off in seeking out One-Eyed Willie's treasure along the coast. Unfortunately, criminal fugitives wind up in the mix and upon finding out the news from Chunk during an interrogation. The Fratellis wind up hot on the Goonies' trail through the cavernous labyrinth.
Spielberg is well known for other films such as "Saving Private Ryan", "E.T.", the "Indiana Jones" films, and a host of other iconic works. His wife, Kate Capshaw, starred alongside Harrison Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". Donner is a comic book writer, producer, and film director. He also was involved with the first "Superman" film, "The Omen", and "Lethal Weapon". He also executive produced the first 2000 "X-Men" movie that snowballed into a major franchise with the most recent in the series "X-Men: Days of Future Past".
