En una reciente entrevista a Sean Astin referente a "The Strain" se le pregunta sobre la secuela de los Goonies y este es el fragmento referente al tema en cuestión...
Dick Donner seems to be starting the Goonies 2 rumor mill again. Have you heard anything real?
No. I mean, for him to say what he said to TMZ is real. He’s a substantial director with a huge resume. He’s not just going to flop stuff out there for no reason. I know Steven wants to do the show, but when you say, “Have I heard anything real?” I hear, “Has there been any job discussion, job offers.”
Yes, that’s what I mean. There was a script a while ago. Is there a new one?
There’s a bunch. They want to do it.
Even Spielberg wants to?
Oh, he wants to most of all. They just can’t get it right and he’s not going to do it unless it’s right, which is pretty cool.
Would Goonies today be helped or hindered by all the technology kids have now?
That Goonies would not be helped. The next Goonies will be. The thing that was so cool about Goonies was it’s very much of its time.
Kids went outside and played back then.
And played, yeah. But more than that, even just the jokes. The movie literate jokes that you’d have. There are little things in there that I accidentally call Brand, the character, Josh, the actor, and they leave that in. We talk about the octopus. That’s kind of famous. The octopus was cut out but he leaves the kid saying octopus in there. There’s just a whimsy about it that somehow captures that specific time and place. It would take a really special moment for that to be grabbed for now.
I think it was strategic of Donner to say it to TMZ. Maybe he wants to do it but there needs to be some heat outside the studio system.
Any time any sophisticated person says something to a media person, there has to be some net value to it. It must be that Dick believes that’s happening.
En resumidas cuentas, no aclara nada. Parece ser que pese a las reiteradas intenciones de una segunda entrega, de momento todo está en el aire. Y aquí la entrevista completa:Link
Por otra parte, de seguir adelante con el proyecto, ¿Chris Columbus estaría implicado en este y en Gremlins 3?Link
