The possibility of a film sequel has been confirmed and denied many times in recent years by the original cast and crew. Donner said that he had a story he liked and Spielberg behind him, but in 2004 several of the actors from the original revealed that Warner Bros., the film’s owner, had shown no interest in a sequel. Sean Astin told MTV in October 2007 that Goonies 2 “is an absolute certainty … The writing’s on the wall when they’re releasing the DVD in such numbers.” Donner has expressed doubt that the sequel will ever happen, as many of the actors had not shown interest in returning for a sequel. Corey Feldman stated in his November 25, 2008 blog post, “NO! There is no Goonies 2! I’m sorry but it’s just not gonna happen …. Course now that I’ve said that, they’ll do it.” However, on the July 2010 release of The Making of a Cult Classic: The Unauthorized Story of The Goonies DVD, Richard Donner states a sequel to The Goonies is a “definite thing” and will involve as much of the old cast as possible. “It will happen,” says Donner. “We’ve been trying for a number of years.” On April 5, 2014, Richard Donner revealed a sequel is in the works, and he hopes to bring back the entire cast.
