Goonies 2 Is A Go

About two weeks ago a guy was walking through the Warner Brothers back lot and noticed a golf cart adorned with a logo that said Goonies 2. He Tweeted it out and since then, the people who noticed that Tweet have been wondering whether there was going to be a Goonies 2 or if it was just a nice tribute to the movie or an early April Fool's Day prank being prepared. Well, TMZ cornered Richard Donner and he told them there is definitely going to be a Goonies 2. Here is the thing. The first one really holds up even after all these years. People still like watching it. Sure, there were some things that could have been CGI'd to make them look more realistic, but I don't think the intention was to scare anyone to death. Would the second one have the now adults looking for where Willie's ship sailed off to?

Goonies!

Violet said...

Corey Feldman lost the plot and Chunk became a looker. What time does to people.

Bacon Ranch said...

In other news

Numerous creative people submit their scripts only to be turned down by Hollywood powers that be for 'not being marketable'.

And this is greenlit.

Leekalicious said...

Wow, this is great news! (for once).

Bacon Ranch said...

....By numerous scripts I don't mean for this flop in the making, btw.
I just wanted to pop back in to say missbunny your puppy is ADORABLE!

missbunny said...

If you ever have 2 hours to waste, watch the commentary from the actors. .. that blonde chick is so bitter and Sean Astin, with his lord of the rings money just leaves half way through. Feldman is in top form. I think it's the 20 year anniversary edition.

Violet said...

@leek I'm not sure it is good news. Why mess with a classic. Sure as the nose on my face, a remake will be a disaster. Imagine ET2? Just no.

bored soccer mom said...

So tell me Enty, who is going to take over CDAN while you are off filming? ;0

Sprink said...

I've never seen this film. Have I missed out?

FSP said...

I hope Corey's song makes the soundtrack. That would be nice!

Bacon Ranch said...

It's a cute movie Sprink :)

Leekalicious said...

True, Violet - sequels do seem to spoil the storyline more often than not. (Will not mention Scooby-Doo)

Count Jerkula said...

I always knew chicks dug Goonies, but I never knew how many had Sloth fantasies until I made my 6'3, 280lb, shaved head friend buy a Sloth t-shirt. At least 3 times he got laid based on that t-shirt alone.

99% chance of this sequel sucking.

Bacon Ranch said...

Now there is no need to bring Scoobs into this Leek :)
Thank you for the restraint.

Sprink said...

I'll have to look it up, Bacon.

Frankly the DVD commentary sounds fun, as described by missbunny.

I love the idea of Sean Astin just blowing it of, as though the LOTR cheque came through.

And "the blonde girl"--who is definitely a young Martha Plimpton--can come across as bitter, sure, but she's an interesting actress, off screen as well as on. And if that wasn't enough, she must have extra anecdotes aplenty from being George's daughter and River's ex. Hmm...

Leekalicious said...

No problem Bacon, it's a sore subject for so many people (including me)

Bacon Ranch said...

It also has "Throw Momma from the train" Anne Ramsey in it
BONUS it is where the "Truffle Shuffle" came from.

Really, it's a couple of hours that wouldn't be wasted. Just grab some wine and popcorn and let your mind take a break.

bflogurl said...

Martha Plimpton is hilarious in Raising Hope.

Jessi said...

That "blonde chick"'is thee Martha Plimpton, have some respect!! :) But this is just some bullshit, yep keep on trucking Hollywood and making crap out of what was once gold.

Megley said...

Martha Plimpton's not the spawn of George. Her parents are Keith Carradine and Shelly Plimpton.
Google is your friend.

Megley said...

And Martha was interviewed about River Phoenix in the recent book, Last Night at the Viper Room.

LucyDocDuck said...

That's not at all how I remember the DVD commentary. Corey Feldman kept being a skeezy douche and Martha kept calling him out on it.

audrey said...

@LucyDocDuck--that is because Corey Feldman is a skeezy douche.

Sherry said...


Word Bacon Ranch..Please refer to the Tori blind item.

As I never saw the first one I'm pretty certain I won't be watching this load of recycled poo either. Come on Hollywood, get off your ass and read all the good scripts out there and make something original. Sheesh, you lazy fucks.

Sprink said...

@Megley, Google is your friend only when you consult it? Why would I consult it when I was certain I was correct?

Turns out I was wrong, of course, ha! My bad.

fancyscreenname said...

@Megley
I always thought Martha was George 's daughter. Good to know.

Seven of Eleven said...

OH HELL TO THE NO.

headrot said...

@violet i agree with you. i'm not so sure this is a good thing.

AKM said...

I'm an '80's kid who has never seen GOONIES. (Please don't throw rotten fruit at me. Thanks!)

I loved Martha on "Raising Hope," among her other work. (PARENTHOOD, anyone?!) I am so sad that "RH" is over now! At least they got a finale, though; "My Name is Earl" didn't.

And yes, she's a Carradine daughter. ;-)

AKM said...

Eh. I meant "as well as," not "among." I'm proctoring an exam and I'm exhausted.

missbunny said...

Thank you Bacon Ranch! That's our Charlie, and his is as silly as he looks

missbunny said...

I used imbd so that I didn't call Sean Astin Samwise, but I just thought the blond chick lost her glasses, I didn't know she was noteworthy otherwise. ..I guess I was just too eager ;-)

Seven of Eleven said...

@AKM, you just murdered my heart. :(

I'm behind on my viewing by about 6 episodes but I ***love*** Raising Hope. Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt are perfect together. And Cloris Leachman! Why oh why did they cancel? The show got two Emmy nominations, it deserved to live past four seasons! (Even if they did give that tool Wilmer Valdertoolarama a job...)

Jessi said...

I was really just kidding, but I adore Martha, she's wicked smart and just a cool chick!

clearly4you said...

Everyone who hasn't seen Goonies....go rent it! Also, I do not approve of a sequel. Booooo.

Jazzy said...

Hi Hollywood, it's me Jazzy. Could you be a peach and stop ruining my childhood with reboots. Thanks doll!

Alita said...

*Double take*

That IS Chunk. He is indeed looking good. Well spotted, @Violet!

MadLyb said...

Does this mean the other Enties are going to take over while Enty#1 reprises his "Chunk" role? I do so love the original Enty and will miss him dearly during his absence.

AB said...

Bingo

Erik said...

i loved goonies as a kid and yeah, this sequel is gonna suck.

totally had no idea keith carradine is martha plimpton's dad.

Nolesgirl said...

I went on my first date and saw Goonies (the date was a dbag) but I LOVED little inhaler sucking Corey Haim. Chunk has turned into a stud, good for him. If there is a remake, you can bet Hollywood will RUIN it!
