We can't believe how long it's been! Seriously!
Check out the photos (above) of the Stand By Me kids all grown up, along with actor/narrator Richard Dreyfuss and director Rob Reiner…AND THEN the kids back in 1986.
Sad that River Phoenix couldn't be there to celebrate with them, but he'll always be remembered for his wonderful performance in Reiner's classic film.
Looks like we're hearing quite a bit from Corey Feldman lately.
Yesterday, we heard the positive news that Feldman has got some more work on the horizon, and now we're hearing some less-than-positive reports that he's pissed because Corey Haim was snubbed from the Oscars' In Memoriam segment.
Here's what Feldman had to say about it:
"Corey's films have earned the industry over a half a billion dollars and his work remains an inspiration to young artists world wide…Corey dedicated his life to the film industry. The same industry that failed to dedicate even 30 seconds to his memory."
Here's a statement that the Academy sent out in response:
"Whatever the length of the sequence, there will always be fans and family members of those not included who will be disappointed by their omission. The Academy extends its understanding and its apologies to those who missed seeing a favorite face in this year’s feature."
We understand that they won't be able to fit everyone into each year's In Memoriam, but they could have given Corey a place on there. He was a well known talent who died way before his time, and it would have been nice for him to be included.

It'd be pretty tough for them to trump the genius that was Lost Boys: The Thirst, but we suppose it's worth a try! Ha!
Corey Feldman has been riding the Lost Boys train for quite a while, and it looks like he'll continue to do so, because we've learned that a fourth Lost Boys
film movie flick is in the works, along with a TV show, which is in its extremely early stages.
Feldman will return for the fourth entry in the Lost Boys series. No word yet if he'll star in the TV show, but we have a suspicion that he will, given the fact that he doesn't seem to have TOO much else on his plate right now.
We're glad to hear that Corey's getting work, but other than that, this news doesn't do anything much for us. As far as we're concerned, they would have been fine without ANY sequels.
Will U check out the new Lost Boys flick? How ’bout the TV series?

Hmm, we don't think this is a good idea…
However, stars of the 1985 cult movie The Goonies, including Corey Feldman, who played Mouth, says that he along with his co-star Sean Astin, writer Steven Spielberg, and director Richard Donner want to reunite for a sequel.
"I would do it if [the studio] was serious, but unfortunately they can't seem to get it together. We all like to see it happen, but it's one of those stumbling blocks where no matter how much love there is … The No. 1 question that’s always been asked of me for the last 20 years is, 'Will there be a sequel to Goonies?,' and unfortunately my answer is always the same. It’s not up to me, you know, it's the studio.
They treasure this film, as you know. It is literally their greatest family film title of all time. That's the way they see it. It's always on the top 25, all DVD sales around the world all the time. If we go and throw a sequel out there that's lesser [in quality,] then suddenly we may hurt this continuous cash cow."
We still can't picture that anyone would be willing to shell out their dough to see a middle-aged Chunk, but to each their own.
And if the movie is such a money maker, wouldn't the studio be on board?? Maybe they agree that they should just let a classic remain a classic.
With the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Goonies, wouldn't it be AWESOME if they made an announcement about the long-awaited sequel?
Unfortunately, that's unlikely to happen…but how would U like to see The Goonies on BROADWAY?!?!?
Here's what director Richard Donner had to say about the future of Goonies:
“We were thinking that (the sequel) for years back, couldn’t do it. Felt like everything we were doing would hurt what we had with the original, hence the musical. But Steven (Spielberg) said something the other day to me that he and Chris (Columbus) were talking about and maybe something — but I don’t think there’d be a sequel. I wouldn’t remake it. If anything it’d be something new and fresh. Hopefully we’re doing this as a musical on Broadway. It took forever to get on Broadway. It was a long, long process but it just got a lot shorter because there’s a great writer/producer (Tim Long) who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment on ‘Goonies’ as a musical and it’s friggin’ great.”
Corey Feldman must be having a party in his head with the possibility of somehow getting involved with this project!
How excited are U for this? Do U think it'll actually happen?
Check out the video (above) to see Corey Feldman talk more about Corey Haim's death, while promoting his new film Lost Boys: The Thirst.
Feldman makes a point to clear the air, and assure people that Corey Haim died from an enlarged heart & pneumonia…NOT a drug overdose.
Did U think Corey Haim had died from a drug overdose?
Good to see you!! Where have you been hiding, bb???
