TheGoonies.org berichtet über ein "Goonies"-Trickfilmprojekt...
Cartoon Network and The Donners' Company were working on a cartoon version of The Goonies that would have picked up right where the movie left off. It was going to incorporate all the deleted scenes from the original (like the Gorillas, Leeches, etc.) along with new adventures.
The latest word on what has stopped the production is that the cast wanted too much money for their likeness. We heard the first contract was rejected (this isn't uncommon in the industry), but no follow up was made by Cartoon Network to work something out. [...]
Despite attempt after attempt after attempt - one more ‘attempt’ for good measure? - Richard Donner says his long-planned sequel to "The Goonies" is as dead as any fish in the Yarra.
"I don't think so", the "Lethal Weapon" director tells IGN FilmForce. "We tried really hard. Steven [Spielberg] and I, we pitched a couple of things to them and, quite honestly, they weren't right. And we put it aside. If I could ever find a really good handle on a screenplay for it, I'd go pitch it again, because talking about [something] I'd want to see... It's extraordinary. But it's got to be right, or don't do it, because I couldn't believe that movie. It's done to generations of kids what it's done."
Still, he can dream.
"Maybe one day Chris Columbus will write it for us and we'll get back to the old group".
AICN zitiert Corey Feldman, der auf der Rolling Roadshow Tour 2005 zugegen war...
[...] GOONIES 2? Corey reports that everyone wants to do it, except Warner Brothers. He really wants to do it. He recalled his memories of seeing the Pirate Ship that first time and being stunned. Folks asked if they pushed the ship out to see at the end, and he confirmed that they absolutely did (wink wink) because the pirates needed to be set free! [...]
CHUD sprach mit Kathleen Kennedy...
[...] What about Goonies 2?
Kennedy: That is the movie that just kills me. So many people of your generation - it's like some kind of cult thing. Maybe. I don't know. That's one that just kind of floors us that it still stuck around. You're not alone. I get asked that all the time.
[...] During a "Growing Up Goonie" Q&A on Saturday, a question about the current status of "Goonies 2 "was one of the first ones asked. Cohen said he was contacted by Spielberg last year and though the pitch was "funny" but the suits at Warner Brothers aren't willing to play ball. While Donner, Spielberg and most of the cast are willing to jump on board, the company isn't willing to shell out the funds necessary. According to Cohen, there are other interested companies/investors willing to cough up the necessary cash but Warners owns the rights and is so far refusing to budge.
Over the weekend, the Columbian Theater in downtown Astoria showed the original film, along with a new documentary by Ron Fugelseth and Patrick Radcliff, the directors of "The Goonies Vacation." Along with interviews with crew members and Lupe "Rosalita" Ontiveros, the two managed to score a sit-down with Donner. "'Goonies 2' will still happen," the director said. "Provided enough of you keep complaining and sending in letters." [...]
While the sequel remains stuck in development hell, Cohen hinted that there's another Goonies product in the works, set for release next year. He was unable to give any details so there's no telling what it could be. Could it be a video game? A Goonies anime? A talking Chunk action figure with a "Truffle Shuffle" button? A talking Steph button with a "whine and snap gum" button. Only time will tell. [...]
[...] It's been rumoured longer than the Felddog's been out of work, yet the original "Goonies" are still hearing whispers of a Donner-led sequel. TheGoonies.org relayed this bit from Sean 'Mikey' Astin - chatting to ESPN - on the sequel, "Its funny when everybody walked on stage to accept the "Best Picture" Oscar last year, it was presented to Peter by Steven Spielberg. I found myself standing next to Mr. Spielberg and I just said, "Steven, do you realize how many people want to see a "Goonies" sequel? And he looked at me, as we were in front of the entire industry and millions of people watching on TV, and he goes, "Sean, you guys just made history, why we don't focus on that film first. OK." Astin adds, "He and everyone else who was involved with it knows how much people want to see another, and everywhere I go throughout our country and around the world, people approach me about the "Goonies." The movie represents a very nostalgic period. I have always said that I would love to act in a sequel. I think it would be really fun to reconnect to those actors, but the idea of being the parent or having like a new generation of "Goonies" is sort of a buzz kill for me. I still think of myself as Mikey in a selfish way. If there's going to be an another adventure, I would want it to be about us!" [...]
There has been plenty of talk about a sequel to Goonies but every time that some progress gets made someone seems to lose interest. Joe Pantoliano during the junket for Racing Stripes acknowledges that he also has heard these rumors. If it was up to Joe, he's in.
When asked about Goonies he says, "There's rumors that we are doing a sequel. I’ve been told that we’ll be back. You know there’s only two of us left, Robert Doffey and I, Andy is gone, Matuszak is gone. I haven’t seen a script yet but they have been talking about it for years. Steven and Dick Donner have mentioned it."
So would he be interested? "Oh I’d love to be able [to do it]. You know what, I was working at Warners, I went on stage 16, which is the largest stage in the world, it’s the water stage, where we did the boat, all the stuff on the boat and it was just you know I remember my kid being 3 years old and now he’s 23. I would just love to able to be apart of that and it does have such a tremendous following. I’m actually going to show it at the Richfield Play house in February, they have a whole series of films and they asked me which film I would want to show, and I thought why don’t we show The Goonies. So we could do it on a Saturday afternoon and everybody can bring their kids," said Pantoliano.
We can only hope that the powers that be give this long anticipated project a green light. [...]
The on-again off-again on-again off-again (bored yet?) "Goonies 2" is back on again, according to the Astoria Movies website.
A crew-ie working on "The Ring 2", which filmed in the area, says he's attached to work on the long-awaited Sloth seconds."One of the crew who had also worked on The Goonies, told a friend of mine that the Goonies 2 will be shooting here soon, and he is part of that crew...", scooper tells.
According to the site, the sequel will feature a cast of old and new - Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci with originals Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerry Green, Martha Plimpton, and Jonathan Ke Quan - in a story that involves the original "Goonies" helping out their own tykes on a new adventure. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es ein aktuelles Zitat von Richard Donner...
[...] As for Goonies II, "Afraid not." Donner told the audience after someone shouted out for Goonies II. He said they tried but didn't live up to the original so no Goonies. Now, he said no but I don't know if it means it will never happen. He may have said he's out of the chair but it doesn't mean another director, ie Sean Astin, couldn't take over. I guess we'll have to wait and see. [...]

IGN FilmForce sprach mit Richard Donner...
IGNFF: What is the current status of Goonies 2?
DONNER: Waiting for Warners to say yes. They're being ridiculous.
IGNFF: Still something you want to do?
DONNER: If I don't direct it, I'll produce it. I do want to make it, though. I definitely want to make it.
Bei AICN gibt es einen Kommentar von Harry Knowles...
[...] Been poking around a bit on this whole "Groonies" thing... it just doesn't sound right, and sure enough it isn't. The current working title on the script by Michael (X2/CHARLIE CHAN/WAKE THE DEAD) Dougherty and his sometimes writing partner Dan (X2/IMAGINARY HEROES) Harris isn't GROONIES, but rather... "GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE"!!! Now that's a title! Turns that the "Groonies" thing all came from a misunderstanding from an interview with Richard Donner. You see, in the film the group of new kids in the story get the name of the original group mixed up and call themselves "Groonies" then are set right by the original gang. Apparently it is a one line gag in the movie.
So there we have it... apparently Dougherty and Harris are hammering away at the script which hasn't been delivered yet, but all seem quite enthusiastic based upon their pitch. I for one... love the GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE title! It's Great!
[...] Paul Walker was being interviewed for his new movie Timeline. He said he wanted to work with Richard Donner again on Goonies. RIchard had asked Paul what he thought about doing it, and he said he'd love to. Then Paul said Donner asked him his opinion and he said he HAS to bring everyone back, including Sloth. It wasn't a movie without Sloth so it was important all the original cast was involved. Walker made it clear that Donner was asking his opinion and nothing more. As far as him working with Donner on the movie, all he said was "Richard asked me to be in the movie". [...]
MTV.com zitiert Richard Donner...
[...] Richard Donner, who directed the 1985 classic "The Goonies," and Steven Spielberg, who executive produced it and co-wrote the script with future "Harry Potter" director Chris Columbus, have purchased a sequel script and are pushing to get it made.
"We're trying desperately," Donner said. "We're just trying to get Warner Bros., who owns it, to say yes." Warner Bros. did not return a request for comment.
The sequel would reunite the original cast, which included Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin and others, with a new bunch of suburban kids, Donner said.
"The new group is called the Groonies, because they happen to live in a town where [Data], the Chinese kid, lives ... and he's got an electronics repair shop and all the kids hang out at his shop. He has this Chinese accent and he calls the Goonies the Groonies, and so the new kids call themselves the Groonies, until they get into a situation where the old Goonies have to save the new Groonies, or vice versa."
Donner would not say much more about the plot or the casting but said Astin's character, Mikey, would be prominent, and Jeff Cohen's Chunk would return.
"He is a lawyer now, you know," Donner said of Cohen. "He graduated UC Berkeley Law School top of his class and he's now a practicing lawyer here in [Hollywood] and phenomenal. Damn right we'll see him. I'm very proud of every one of those kids. They all turned out great."
"The Goonies," which also starred Martha Plimpton ("Beautiful Girls") and Joe Pantoliano ("The Sopranos"), centered on a group of teenagers who stumble upon a map of pirate "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden fortune.
Donner will continue developing the sequel after taking a few weeks to promote his latest movie, the sci-fi thriller "Timeline," starring Paul Walker as an archaeological student who travels back to 14th century France to rescue his professor. [...]
Bei CoreyFeldman.com gibt es Infos zur "Goonies 2"-Petition... Mitmachen !!!
Richard Donner apparently revealed at a "Timeline" preview screening in Dallas that both old & new cast would be in the film, and he is definitely going to do it - even if Warners passes on the project.
Rumour has it that Richard Donner is finally getting going on "The Goonies" sequel, with scouting reportedly taking place in the Oregon State Park, Astoria, the same place where the first film was filmed. We checked in with a representative of the park to see if he’s heard - or better still - seen anything. "I've heard that they're probably going to shoot - and probably in Astoria once again. Nothing about a state park location", he says. For a better confirmation we turned to actor Corey Feldman, who is believed to be starring in the flick - when [if it ever] gets going. "I just got off the phone with Mr. Donner and I can tell you that the source of your information is incorrect. Although they are working on a script idea for the movie that is as far as it has gone at this point." So I guess that means we’ve a story - but still no go on the sequel. [..]
Wie, die Original-Besetzung soll beim Sequel nicht mehr mitwirken !?! Bei TheGoonies.org gibt es eine entsprechende Petition...
A source who worked on the original Goonies tells us Warner Brothers plans on making "The Goonies 2" without the original cast!
Add your FULL name to the official petition to bring back original cast!
Bei E! Online gibt es einen Kommentar von Corey Feldman...
Any plans for Goonies 2?
Here's the deal: We've talked about it. We've had discussions about it so many times through the years. One time, Richard Donner called and said, "We're going back to work." With such a diverse group of talented people, you want to make sure [everyone can come back together]. You don't want to make a crap sequel, or you'd rather not do it all.
Bei AICN gibt es folgende Sequel-Meldung...
[...] Sean indeed said that he's got a complete story all worked out in his head, and was visibly enthused by it. At last year's Golden Globes he mentioned this to Spielberg (who seems intent on producing it), but was told that a script was already in the works and nearing completion (though I don't know the writer). Since then, though, Sean hasn't heard anything else about the project's status.
However, Sean did express very strong interest in directing the GOONIES sequel himself (!) -- but only if Richard Donner declined to direct. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es Infos von Sean Astin...
In the Q&A session toward the end someone asked a little two-part question concerning "The Goonies" and a possible sequel. The first part had to do with whether or not a four-hour cut of the original Goonies exists or existed at one point (according to some rumor this kid had heard). Sean said he didn't know about a four-hour cut, but he said of course there were many scenes he knew of that didn't make the final cut - one having to do with a car chase where a car spins out of control and falls off the side of the road or hill or whatever and lands on top of a boat. He also said there was a scene where the whole gang goes to a grocery store right before their journey. Those two scenes were off the top of his head, but he assured us there was, indeed, a ton of cut footage. As for a "director's cut" or special edition DVD with all the extras, nothing was mentioned. Then Sean went on to answer the question about a possible Goonies sequel, but really didn't have much to say about it simply because he doesn't know much at this point. Sean mentioned that Spielberg approached him at the Golden Globes last year and said that he had a script in development that was near completion, but Sean didn't think that "Dick" Donner was interested in making a sequel - at least he didn't seem interested the last time he spoke with Donner, he said.
The Goonies 2: Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are penning the script for Amblin Entertainment, looks like its a go.
[02.08.2002] Moviehole sprach mit Corey Feldman, u.a. über "Goonies 2"...
And when's "Goonies 2" going to happen?
Who knows? Every time it looks like getting off the ground, it hits a stand still again. There’s a new script all the time, and then it gets scrapped because the script sucks. So it's back in stand still.
Is that the script with the kids of The Goonies in it?
Probably. There hasn't been a script for over a year or so now. Back then it was actually a reality.
Richard Donner was supposedly scouting for locations though wasn’t he?
When was that?
Like twelve months ago
Yeah. Since then it’s hit a stand still. But I tell you what, I’ll give Donner a call after this, and we will see what he’s got to say.
[25.06.2002] Moviehole sprach mit Sean Astin, u.a. über "Goonies 2"...
[...] "Spielberg told me that he's almost happy with the script that's being developed. I'm sure it will happen at some point. And all of the Goonies are interested in returning...I just hope they capture the right tone in the script".
One such treatment of the sequel is rumored to involve the offspring of the original Goonies going on a similar adventure to their 1980's counterparts. "I told Steven that I had an epiphany about the sequel and wanted to share my thoughts with him. But, he seems protective of the process. My fear is that they will try to have the Goonies "Kids" involved, which for my money misses the mark," says Sean. Sans Goonies, Astin tells me there are a couple of movies he wishes he could go over; but thinks Goonies is the only film he's interested in following up.

Sounds like the ULTIMATE screening is happening at Landmark's Rialto Theatre in South Pasadena at midnight, with a brand new print of the film and an introduction by Sean Astin.
[30.01.2002] AICN hat ein paar Äusserungen von Spielberg bzgl. "Goonies 2"...
He tackled many questions about his past films... technique and such. But what sparked my interest was a question regarding the Goonies. Someone asked about a sequel, and he did in fact CONFIRM that a sequel was in pre-pre production... meaning that it is in development with Spielberg involved (executive producing again) and ALL cast members returning. The story would have their children dabbling in adventures ALONG with their parents. He didn't elaborate too much on the story... just confirming that the sequel was in the works and WOULD BE MADE.
[12.12.2001] DH meldet...
Sean Astin commented to Zap2It on the possibility of returning for "The Goonies" sequel: "Just give me a call and tell me where to show up," he said. "I'm confident enough of who I am and the seriousness and purpose of my work in other areas to go back and do that... What is life if you can't have a sense of fun and humor".
[25.11.2001] CS! berichtet...
Director Richard Donner spoke to E! Online on video and addressed the "Goonies 2" rumours. First of all, he is planning to call the film "The Goonies" (not "The Goonies II) and it will feature a whole new lot of kids.
The original "Goonies" characters will return too though. Donner told them a while back "Well, we did a Goonies DVD. We got them all to come back to town. They've all become very sophisticated...older. But as they started to talk, they evolved back to the Goonies, it was a whole bunch of crazy kids. It was great," Donner says. "There's new Goonies plus the old Goonies. They show up to screw everything up again", laughs Donner.

[24.08.2001] DH zitiert einen Bericht von DVDFile.com, in dem sich Jeff "Chunk" Cohen über die DVD und das Sequel äussert...
"Actually there are some writers attached who are developing the material. Will it happen? I don't know. I think we're all kind of doing our own thing but they are writing a script and people have talked to us about it, but we'll see. The thing with features, unlike television, is that the development process is so long. It's just so protracted. I'll tell you one thing, and I think this came through in that picture of all of us (taken after the commentary recording), it was really cool to be together. Working on that picture together was really a bond for all of us and, in a way, it was like no time had passed. Will we do a sequel? I don't know, but what we did have was that day of all being there and recording the commentary and that was a very special day to me. It's almost like you're home".
[10.08.2001] DH berichtet...
Corey Feldman was on Howard Stern yesterday morning [...] "The Goonies 2" is going ahead alright, the script is now pretty much complete.
[09.08.2001] Bei DVDFILE.COM gibt es eine DVD-Kritik...
This is just a fantastic release in all respects. I think the presentation is above average for a film of this age and the supplements that Gaines and Thau have put together make this a can't miss release. Highly, highly recommended!!

[23.07.2001] Bei CS! gibt es einige neue Details zur Story von "Goonies 2"...
As For Donner's plans with the story. It is esentially a little more of a backstory about One Eyed Willy. The first part of the movie we check out a 30 odd aged Willy in his Pirate Days.
The Goonies are reintroduced into the story, when Mikey (now in his 20's) now a shop owner is offered an attractive price of a precious artifact. Whilst his fiancee, Tami (Keri Green) thinks it could help pay for their upcoming wedding - Mikey declines the man's offer. Whilst Mikey and Tami plan their wedding back in Astoria (for which his old "Goonies" pals will be present), an old foe is facing the inside of a jail cell. But not for long...
[21.07.2001] Bei CS! gibt es einige neue Infos zu "Goonies 2"...
[...] it's a "go" picture, according to the Associated Press.
Regarding the sequel, Richard Donner, confirmed that two writers are working on a sequel and, depending on how it turns out, filming could start in six months to a year. "Everybody's coming back," Donner said.
That everybody, includes Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, and Martha Plimpton no doubt.

SPM: Can you tell us if it's a sequel to a teen movie?
