Director Richard Donner Confirms Steven Spielberg Has a Story for THE GOONIES 2

A couple weeks ago, The Goonies director Richard Donner said that a sequel to the popular 1985 film was going forward.  When Donner was asked if he would ever do another comic book movie (he directed Superman and Superman II), he replied “If you call Goonies a comic book.  We’re doing a sequel.”  Movies.com notes that while writer, producer, and second unit director Steven Spielberg was previously vague about his desire for a sequel, he did have some ideas for it.  Now Donner has confirmed to TMZ that Spielberg has come up with an idea for the sequel’s storyline, and they’re trying to get the original cast back together even though it might be difficult for Josh Brolin to return.  However, there seems to be an assumption on the part of fans that it would be easy to get everyone else back, which isn’t necessarily the case.  Jeff Cohen (Chunk) and Jonathan Ke Quan (Data) have both retired from acting, and just because they might be invited to do The Goonies 2, that doesn’t mean they would return.

Hit the jump for Donner looking annoyed as he talks about Spielberg and The Goonies 2.
