Sean Astin's recent claim that a sequel to The Goonies was "an absolute certainty" may now be dead. Director Richard Donner has been in talks with Warner Brothers to create a Goonies musical. Say what?! Can you imagine the "Truffle Shuffle" as a full-blown musical number? A Sloth serenade? A ballad about Chester Copperpot? I'm not even morbidly curious, and most things make me morbidly curious.
So, according to Donner, WB is far more enthusiastic about a singing-and-dancing Broadway Goonies than a sequel. Save us, Cyndi Lauper; you're our only hope.
