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.”
