From Coming Soon:
I thought Chunk wasn't chunky anymore? Is he going to bulk up for the role? Not sure how I feel about this. "The Goonies" was one of my fave flicks in the mid-80's, but watching the DVD wasn't as much fun as I remember. The curse of growing up, I suppose.
Hearing the (supposed) plot synopsis didn't make the news very promising. Apparently, Short Round... err, I mean Data, is running his own electronics shop and because of his 'wacky dialect' refers to the 'Goonies' as 'Groonies.' Thus the name of the new film. And there is a young group of 'groonies' and the old original 'goonies.' Is it just me, or is that not only contrived but slightly offensive?
I'll believe it when I see it. There have been rumors about G2 for over a full decade. At one time it was going to be a "vehicle" for the return of the two Coreys, in addition to the crew of the first film. And then it was going to be a new group of kids for a new generation of film-watchers. Now we have a combination of the two. Good luck, I want to see it happen, but I'm not holding my breath.
Err... I don't know what to think. The wacky dialect thing - it just sounds bad. I'd rather have Joey Pants and his brothers return for revenge on the now grown up Goonies... better yet, I think I'd rather they leave well enough alone.
So is this movie still going to be made, or did it get canned ?
It's not looking good according to Dark Horizons
Looks like they're going ahead with an animated sequel which will bring back the original group as well as their own kids. I wonder if this will get a theatrical release? With Spielberg producing, maybe a CGI sequel (ala. Monster House) http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=21309
I'd like to see an animated Goonies.

With the state of Hollywood today i'm surprised they're doing a sequel rather than a remake. How do we know that Key Hu Kwan and Jeff Cohen can even still act as adults? They haven't done anything for years on screen. My point is getting them could end up being detrimental to this thing rather than help it.
It would interesting if they could pull this off...something that would appeal to nostalgic adults and their kids. Good luck! I was a little too old for the original and avoided it. Finally caught it late 80s or early 90s and thought it was great! I still like the original even though I'm in my 40s. Animated is definitely a great way to go. My guess is this will materialize as a TV show instead of a feature film.
Tron 2. Goonies 2. It's like I'm 12 again. What's next? Wargames 2? Ferris Bueller Takes Another Day Off?
^^^ Don't forget Seventeen Candles and The Lunch Club.
I'd like a Gremlins 3. One that returns to the horror/comedy roots, rather than the complete Airplane-like slapstick of G2.
