A sequel to “The Goonies” may finally materialize. According to Variety, director
Richard Donner was quoted as saying that he plans to bring back the entire
original cast for the “follow-up” to his 1986 cult classic. “It will happen,” he said.
“I’m 1000 percent certain there will be a sequel. I will bet my children on it.”

Donner didn’t mention whether the film will follow the gang 28 years later or
feature them in cameo roles.
