Goonies never say die, though their yeses do sometimes come rather begrudgingly.
After spending much of his morning Reddit AMA dishing behind-the-scenes stories about the kiddie cult flick, Josh Brolin continued to use his “Sin City 2” press blitz to discuss “The Goonies” — a movie released 30 years ago — on the “Tonight” Show.
Wearing a throwback red bandana gifted to him by host Jimmy Fallon (and thus bearing a striking resemblance to his teen self), Brolin said he’d be interested in participating in a “Goonies” sequel… if director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg ever got their act together.
“I would do it in a second, of course I would do it,” he told Fallon. “I would do it, but every five years I keep hearing that we’re gonna do it and I’m like, yeah… and then when finally you hear something like Richard Donner, it’s on TMZ, so you can’t believe it! I wanna do it, of course I would do it!”
His views must have shifted a bit since that morning’s Reddit session, where he seemed more reticent to return to the film that put him on the map.
“There’s always a possibility. Seriously, no teasing,” he told fans. “About every 5 years it comes up. I’ve never read a script. It seems that recently in the last year, there’s been more talk of it than usual from the likes of Corey Feldman and Richard Donner. But that’s as far as it’s gone for me. I don’t know how I feel about a sequel, given that I love the original movie so much.”
