Sean Astin of Rudy and Lord of The Rings fame has weighed in with his opinion of the whole Goonies 2 situation. Sean is 100% behind a Goonies 2 movie and is 100% sure that one is going to be made.
If you recall, last month, Corey Feldman said that an animated Goonies 2 was a certainty. Sean Astin doesn't think it will be an animated version, but instead will be a Goonies movie similar to the first and very similar to the one that I suggested last month.
Both Sean and Corey now are following my lead and saying that any Goonies movie should be about kids and should involve the original Goonies cast as adults with their children involved in the adventure. Glad they could come around to my way of thinking, BUT it still doesn't mean I am 100% for a Goonies sequel.
If Steven Spielberg AND Richard Donner are not just involved but THE two main players in a sequel then it will probably be great. If however, they are just two names of many, then, I am sure the movie has a very good chance of sucking the big one.
I am thinking Roseanne Barr for the Anne Ramsey part of Mama Fratelli, and I think that Joe Pantoliano and Robert Davi should both be involved in any sequel as well.
