The director says he's working to bring back the original cast, while the actor tweets about attempt to bring the best script possible.
"The Goonies" sequel is not dead yet, assures director Richard Donner. "If you call 'Goonies' a comic book. We're doing a sequel," the helmer of 1978's "Superman" says when asked by TMZ if he will do another comic book movie. He hopes to bring back the original cast for the follow-up.
In response to the buzz surrounding the sequel project, Corey Feldman, one of the original cast members, took to Twitter to confirm, "It's close, then I believe they R workin hard 2 make it the best script poss and if and when they feel confident 2 share w us, U will know!"
Talks about a possible sequel to the 1985 kid-centric adventure film have long been discussed. Last year, another original cast, Sean Astin, told IGN, "It will happen." The now 43-year-old actor added, "I'm 1000 percent certain there will be a sequel. I will bet my children on it."
The original movie was scripted by Chris Columbus from a story by executive producer Steven Spielberg. It followed a group of kids who found a map that led them on an adventure to unearth a missing treasure of legendary pirate, One-Eyed Willie. It starred Astin, Feldman, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, and Martha Plimpton.
