Previously we brought you news on a GOONIES sequel/musical pitched by screenwriter Adam F. Goldberg. Back then I didn't think it was possible, and I must say I'm still not sure it will happen - at least not in the way fans would want it to - despite new buzz coming from Sean Astin.Astin claims the sequel is an "absolute certainty" due to strong DVD sales.
Steven [Spielberg] and Dick [Donner] and all the powers that be they really feel like the thing that made the movie strong was that it was about kids, so they really want to make the next movie about kids the next generation of Goonies. And theyve had a hard time tackling that, Astin tells MTV Movies Blog.I honestly don't see this happening unless it's a direct-to-DVD quickie like LOST BOYS 2. The nostalgic pull of THE GOONIES isn't as strong as say, Transformers or Ninja Turtles, so making a movie is a risky prospect, particularly when none of the original cast are bankable names. Hollywood is far too reliant on remakes and sequels anyway. Giving into nostalgia is creative suicide. Bryan Singer - an excellent director - absolutely killed his Superman movie because he believed that audiences cared about the old Christopher Reeve movies. The more fresh ideas we get the better, I have great memories of the original GOONIES and don't want them ruined by some half-baked sequel. source - mtv movies blog
