It’s been talked about for three decades but it looks like a sequel to The Goonies ain’t happening.
Well, that’s according to original star Martha Plimpton who was asked the status of the project during a Reddit chat this week.
“I can tell you that I really wouldn’t expect it,” she wrote. “It’s been teased for decades and I don’t think it’s going to happen. At least, as far as I know. I think [director] Dick Donner, who is a brilliantly funny man, likes to torture us all with the prospect. I believe it’s his revenge for having been tortured by all of us for six months in 1984.”A
A few years back, director Richard Donner revealed that he and Steven Spielberg were considering a fresh sequel with Chris Columbus, who penned the original, also involved. However, nothing has been mentioned for a while until this week’s comments.
Whilst I live in hope, things don’t look promising.
