‘Goonies’ sequel, ‘Gremlins’ reboot back on the cards


Warner Bros. is moving forward with a sequel to ’80s family favourite The Goonies, director Richard Donner has revealed.

Though Donner only dropped the news when cornered by TMZ, Ain’t It Cool News did some digging and discovered the flick is indeed on “the fast track to production.”

Donner will produce alongside Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus, though none will write or direct this new sequel.

The picture will likely concern the kids of the characters from the first feature, with the original cast appearing in cameos.

The Goonies ain’t the only 1980s property being plundered by WB.

AICN believe a remake of Joe Dante’s Gremlins – another reboot that’s been rumoured for years – is similarly on the fast track.

So, get ready for a whole new generation of truffle-shufflin’.
