Fans of the original "The Goonies" have wondered for years what a sequel to the boisterous cult classic would look like. Now, word has come down from one of the original film's stars that we might be left wondering...
The whole hubbub about a potential "The Goonies 2" began back in 2014, when "Goonies" director Richard Donner announced a sequel was in the works. However, according to Corey Feldman -- who played Mouth in the 1985 film -- age might have robbed the director of his second chance at the property.
"Richard Donner is 87 years old. And it's like, no one really wants to make it without him," Feldman told MovieWeb. "He's the driving force behind it. He says it's still alive. But as we all know...When you get to that age, things slow down quite a bit. There is a big possibility that he might not want to keep driving it. So, I think without him, it doesn't happen. And every day that passes, that he doesn't do it, there is less and less chance that it is ever going to happen at all."
Feldman also cited public response to the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot, which features an all-female cast and has been met with ever-increasing vitriol by internet denizens familiar with the series. It seems that in light of the "Ghostbusters" response, some creators (or '80s child actors) are thinking twice about updating classic franchises if it means a change to the original formula.
