The Director of The Goonies Never Says Die!

Here's some news that will either make Gen Xers excited or appalled: apparently director Richard Donner is ready to make a sequel to the classic '80s film The Goonies. TMZ has the scoop:

Corey Feldman just got awesome news -- Richard Donner told us he's making a sequel to "The Goonies" ... and wants to bring back the entire cast.

Donner was signing autographs in Bev Hills when he dropped the bombshell  ... genuinely surprising our photog.

What Donner didn't say ... whether he'll recast the main characters and bring in Corey, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Data for cameos, or if these guys will actually play the same roles 28 years later.  A gnarly but interesting thought.

Goonies never say die!

But hold on before you go lining up to be the first to buy tickets. Donner has announced a Goonies sequel a number of times in the last decade. He said in 2010 that a sequel was a "definite thing," while in 2007 and 2008 he mentioned a musical adaptation as an idea he was "fairly passionate" and "confident" about. Will this time be the charm for a sequel to The Goonies? We'll just have to wait and see.
