Goonies 2 (sequel) Is Happening!

     Firstly, the image I screencapped is one of my favorite monologues of all time.  Short and sweet.  It's from the wishing well scene, when they think they've found the treasure, but realize this isn't really what they were looking for.  They've found the countless forgotten dreams at the bottom of a well and know that there is definitely something more to be sought, and it's not money or fame.  Mouth (Cory Feldman) says something that, to me, is extremely telling of the film, a message to not just follow your dreams, but to take hold of it- and I hope they remember this for the sequel:

     "This one.  This one right here.  This was my dream, my wish, but it didn't come true.  So, I'm taking it back, I'm taking them all back."
     To the news- Richard Donner has told TMZ that he's making a Goonies sequel.  Hot on the heels of the news of another remake of one of my favorite childhood films getting a remake- Explorers.  Honestly, this might be great.  Especially if Donner can get all the original members together, at least the remaining cast, as both Anne Ramsey (Ma Fratelli) and John Matuszak (Sloth) passed away in 1989.
     I know some of the originals became quite big in the last few years, such as Sean Astin and Josh Brolin, but many of the others could join on.  I wonder if producer Steven Spielberg or writer Chris Columbus will come back on board this pirate ship...

     All in all, I don't really know what to think here.  Hopefully they handle it with all the respect it deserves, as Goonies was a sign of all the hope of our generation from the 80's.  A film to remind us that by working together we can change things.
