Goonies Sequel?

Goonies Sequel?

Josh Brolin briefly spoke to Extra about the likelihood of a sequel to the 1985 film ‘The Goonies’ directed by Richard Donner and written by Steven Speilberg and Chris Columbus.

Brolin, who played Brandon Walsh in the Goonies film, was promoting his new film ‘Jonah Hex’ when he told Extra;

‘I saw Steven Speilberg on the street about a month and a half ago, and I asked the reality. I hear there is a script, yes, but there’s no talk about doing a Goonies sequel at this very moment.’

Discussion of a Goonies sequel has been popping up on and off for a number of years now and while little progress ever seems to eventuate the idea of a sequel never completely fades away either. The original film followed an entertaining group of kids on an adventure after discovering a treasure map.

You can see Brolin in ‘Jonah Hex’ when it opens around Australia on the 5th August.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
