Two Goonies actors talk about The Goonies 2

May 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well everyone is talking about The Goonies 2 and if it’s going to happen and it seems like maybe the stars are as in the dark as everyone else…

Huffpost were doing a live video interview with Goonies star Sean Astin which was hi-jacked by other Goonie Cory Feldman who wanted to know if the sequel to the 1985 movie was actually happening: “What’s happening with Goonies 2? That’s what everybody wants to know,” he asks, “What are we doing?!” 

Astin tells him: “I happen to know that they are actively trying to secure a writer based on an outline that they feel really confident about.”

He also says that Steven Spielberg will ultimately be the person who greenlights the movie:  “When Steven, who ultimately is the decision-maker on this, when he has felt the magic and he and [Richard Donner] are in agreement, which I believe will happen, then it will be a thing.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
