Your childhood self is about to GEEK!
Over the weekend, Goonies director Richard Donner was out signing some autographs in Beverly Hills, when he was asked about a sequel to the 1985 cult classic.
His squeal-worthy answer was simply, "We're doing a sequel.”
The 83-year-old director went on to say that he hopes the original actors like Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, and Corey Feldman would be in it too, though it’s not clear in what capacity.
We’re pretty sure Astin would love to be in it, since back in 2011 he said

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?
