Hey you guyyyyyyys! We have much more “Goonies” news to report. For starters, no, a sequel is still not happening, yet. Nevertheless, this does not seem to stop star Sean Astin, who played asthmatic Mikey Walsh, from giving up hope. Goonies in no way say die, appropriate? Well, nearly.
If the lead Goonie himself is not admitting defeat, we shouldn’t either. The classic ’80s flick is currently living on with an off-Broadway, immersive theater knowledge. (Yes, really!) Whilst preparing for his appearance at Wizard Globe Tulsa convention this October, Astin told Tulsaworld.com, “I have mentioned and will usually say, that it’s not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets created.”
There is a downside to this whole “Goonies 2” notion, which Astin was swift to point out. He noted, “The precise makeup of it, I have no concept. Regardless of whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, no notion.”
So, let’s backup for a sec. Astin is one hundred% convinced a sequel to the greatest film ever will happen at some point in life, but the original cast — the men and women who Created the film what it was — might not be in it?
Identical, Brand. We share your frustration.
Even though “The Goonies” sequel has turned into a single extended, unfunny joke, Astin is not backing down, and his reasoning for standing his ground makes a lot of sense. “It’s larger — it is truly bigger than everybody. It is bigger than even Steven [Spielberg], who created it. It is larger than Richard Donner, who breathed such strong life into it. It’s now a component of American cultural lore, and the studio has a lot to acquire from advertising it, so you can take it to the bank that folks will get to enjoy it more.”
Properly, he’s not wrong. The film created over $ 61 million by September 1985, according to IMDb. Due to the fact 30 years have passed because then, we’re going to go out on a limb and say the movie’s made even far more cash by now.
Interestingly, Astin admitted he and fellow castmate Corey Feldman, who played Clark “Mouth” Devereaux, came up with an notion for the sequel, but have been politely turned down. “We had excellent exciting working on that collectively and pitched it, and we have been respectfully dismissed.” Womp womp.
Astin tweeted out this message on Saturday, and his hashtags will continue to give us hope for the future.
