Sean Astin 100% Behind A ‘Goonies’ Sequel

"It's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made."

One of the most loved cult movies from the 1980s is ‘The Goonies’, which centred on a group of misfit kids going up against modern day pirates in order to save their homes from being taken from them.

The film has been repeated on television many times since it hit cinema in 1985 and has as strong a following now than it had back in the late 80s and early 90s when it was released on VHS and DVD.  The film featured among many well known faced a young Sean Astin and Josh Brolin.

For some time now. For some time now a sequel to the film has been in development, but little is known about the story or who will be returning.

In a recent interview for Tulsa World Sean Astin said, “I have said and will always say, that it’s not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made.”

“The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, no idea. But it doesn’t matter.”

The star added: “It’s bigger, it’s actually bigger than everybody. It’s bigger than even Steven [Spielberg], who created it. It’s bigger than Richard Donner, who breathed such strong life into it.

“It’s now a part of American cultural lore, and the studio has a lot to gain from promoting it, so you can take it to the bank that people will get to enjoy it more.”
Astin went on to add that he and co-star Corey Feldman had once come up with a concept for a sequel.
“We had good fun working on that together and pitched it, and we were respectfully dismissed,” he admitted.
The announcement about ‘The Goonies’ sequel was made back in April.
