Are A ‘Goonies 2′ And ‘Gremlins’ Remake Coming? No Thanks Hollywood!

hollywood-movie-newsI know the Goonies say, Goonies never say die, but apparently Hollywood is taking it literally. According to TMZ who cornered director Richard Donner, whom let it slip that Goonies 2 is going to happen. He says that he would like the original cast to return for it too.

Personally I don’t think it will work. There was something about the during the time that the original film was released, that captured the charm of the it. Besides, didn’t they already try to do a new Goonies movie, but it was called Super 8?

Along with the fact that Hollywood feels we need a Goonies 2, Ain’t It Cool News dropped a nugget of a rumor that Warner Bros. is not only fast tracking Goonies 2 along, but also a remake of Gremlins! Now we are only taking AICN’s word on this for now, so just treat it as a rumor, but if it turns out to be true I can only imagine the horror that will become of the Gremlins franchise.

    Yeah, I think the Goonies should stay in our memories and in our DVD collections. It was an awesome movie and they really don’t need to try for a sequel. No way they can capture what they had in the first. And Gremlins…my god. Little CGI demented Yodas running around everywhere, perhaps dancing to Gangham Style or whatever internet meme is hot at the time. No…no thank you.

    • After the lackluster success Hollywood has had in resurrecting ’80s properties, I’m not interested in them ruining Goonies and Gremlins.
