Goonies II – Just Announced!

The Goonies - 1985

The original Goonies movie (1985).

The production of Goonies II has just been announced! Goonies was one of my all time favorite childhood films. This masterpiece was directed by Richard Donner and produced by Steven Spielberg.  The list of renowned actors in the film include Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman. Since its release in 1985 the film developed quite a following. Goonies is about a group of misfit kids who embark on an underground treasure hunt in order to try and save their parents homes. During their adventures they had to endure many obstacles and enemies. They even managed to make a new friend on their journey.

Now some 28 years later the production of Goonies II has been announced. Goonies was a legendary flick so we can only hope the squeal lives up to the standard set by the first film. If it does we’re all in for quite a treat. The film is certainly starting off on the right path as it will be directed and produced by Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie, Lethal Weapon, Scrooged) and Steven Spielberg (Raiders of the Lost Ark. ET, Poltergeist). They were the films original director and producer. Plus, early rumors are that the squeal will feature members of the original cast! The release date of this film is still a ways away. Though, it very well might be worth the wait!
