The Goonies 2: Three Possible Storylines We'd Actually Want To See
The Meta Goonies 2The idea of a Goonies 2 reunion has been bouncing around for a while, with the cast discussing the possibility during a recent anniversary screening. I think this concept might have been floated around that time. If not, it should be explored from this point going forward.
Donner and Spielberg should get behind a meta comedy for Goonies 2 that has the original cast playing themselves as consultants on the set of a planned Goonies remake. I mean, reboots are all the rage in Hollywood now, and everything we once loved as children is being dredged up by lazy producers to squeeze dollars out of nostalgia.
Imagine Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, Corey Feldman and the crew playing themselves on the set of The Goonies reboot, mentoring youg kids who are groomed to look like the Goon Docks kids from 1985. Only, to create conflict, the real Fratelli brothers (Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano) are now out of jail and determined to ruin the production out of spite – and a sense of vengeance, in honor of their late mother (R.I.P., Anne Ramsey). This approach was adopted by horror sequels like Scream 3 and Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. Donner’s The Goonies wasn’t horror, but the idea is clever enough to give audiences a fresh portal into this familiar franchise. Cyndi Lauper, of course, would cameo.
