In 1985 maakte Richard Donner, de man achter de eerste Superman-film met Christopher Reeve, de filmhit The Goonies. In deze film speelden Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen en Corey Feldman. Al jaren wordt er gesproken over een vervolg maar tot nu toe waren er geen concrete plannen.

Donner liet weten dat er in de tussentijd nieuwe plannen zijn gemaakt voor The Goonies: “We’re going to do an off-Broadway, do you know what immersion theatre is? Where there’s no seats, the venue is you go into a warehouse and there’s something happening in that warehouse and that’s the play you’ve come to see, only you become part of it and you travel through with actors. It’s very popular now. We’re doing one on ‘The Goonies.’ It will take another year or so but it’s going to be wonderful.”

Over het langverwachte vervolg had Donner het volgende te melden: “Maybe… Again, everything takes a long time to get it right. If you do things fast and quick and easy, that’s a disservice. But if there were going to be another movie it would take us a long time to get it right, because we have a lot of history that we’re involved with and a lot of integrity that we have to keep to what once was, and lives a life of its own without destroying it. Maybe the powers that be are working on something.”

Zou een adaptatie van de film The Goonies op het podium werken?
