The long-rumored sequel to 80’s teen classic “The Goonies” may be taking on a different form according to one of its stars. “Right now they are talking about the idea of doing it as an animated series,” Corey Feldman recently revealed to MTV News.
Feldman though isn’t holding his breath considering how many false starts that have already taken place on a sequel. “I would like to say that there’s a great writer on it and it’s coming soon [but] I have nothing for you. It’s a film Spielberg very badly wanted to make [and] Richard Donner very badly wanted to make. All of us [the cast] really, really wanted to do it. It’s come to the point of the script got ordered, and then the ball got dropped. For whatever reason, Warner Bros. doesn’t see it as a profitable venture. It’s a very sad, unfortunate story.”
One script “at one point had me working in Vegas as a lounge guy, a Vegas shyster guy. Then there was another one where I was a trial lawyer…The one that I heard that worked the best was all of us were now grown up, and have [our own] kids. And those kids get into some trouble and end up stumbling across some link to our past. They discover who we really are and what we went through. And, simultaneously, the Fratelli brothers find out that the kids have found out – so they’re out to get the kids and the kids are out to save their lives and their families” says Feldman.
