In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, director Richard Donner revealed that, while a sequel to the film is still up in the air, “The Goonies” is headed to the stage.
“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,” he explained. “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.”
As to the long-rumored sequel to the film, Donner made it clear that there weren’t any concrete plans in place quite yet. “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.”
Released in 1985 and widely considered a classic, “The Goonies” starred Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman and more.
