Corey Feldman still open to a 'Goonies' sequel

Apparently finding pirate treasure is a lot easier than filming a sequel for "The Goonies." Actor Corey Feldman says the cast and crew of Steven Spielberg's cult 1985 movie are eager to film a follow up but the studio is standing in their way.

"I would do it if [the studio] was serious, but unfortunately they can’t seem to get it together,” Feldman tells the Hollywood Reporter of Warner Bros. "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.”

While a sequel to the film – which also starred Josh Brolin, Martha Plimpton and Sean Astin – may not be happening any time to soon, "The Goonies" could be back in the form of a stage musical.

“They are talking about doing a Broadway musical and I know Richard Donner is really behind that,” Feldman says of his "Goonies" director. “He’s a dear friend of mine and we talk about it quite often and he said that they finally got a great script which he’s very excited about.”

Feldman, 39, adds that he'd be up for taking part in the production, though he wouldn't dream of reprising his role as Mouth.

"I’m a little old to be playing a kid,” he admits. “But I would be open to maybe the Fratelli brothers or something. If they offered it, I would definitely be open to it.”

    Now don't get me wrong I would like to see this but they have to have an original plot and not just completely redo the old Goonies plot.

    He went to the same plastic surgeon as Joan Rivers and Michael Jackson. He doesn't even look human anymore.

    Does it really feel all that good to some of you to bash as easy a target as Corey Feldman? Your doing so says a helluva lot more about how relevant you and your opinions are than how washed up Feldman is. It's undeniable that he's still working after all these years and has had more fame than many others who've gone to Hollywood.

    I never much cared for The Goonies, so I don't care whether or not they make a sequel. However, I have always had an odd affection for and interest in Corey Feldman, so I hope he continues to get opportunities to act.

    Could someone let this guy know, his film "career" is long dead! He should go to school, get a license to drive trucks or etc. And the eyebrow thing didnt work for Corey Haim and its not working for this Corey either. So he needs to leave the eyebrows alone, let go of the hope he'll get lucky and get another shot because he wont! People cant put him in real movies unless WE want to see him. He has to be able to entertain US and we dont want to see him. WE also dont want the freaking GOONIES 2! Dude, stop being a beggar at the Hollywood door!

    I'd love a Goonies sequel! I love how Corey Feldman respects the work he's done and is willing to act in movies like the Lost Boys sequels. Will always be a fan and watch his movies! You've still got it, Corey 🙂

    Of course he's open to a sequel to this movie, and every other movie he's been in. He'll act on a subway platform for a dime, I've seen it.
