Josh Brolin

There have been rumblings of a sequel to The Goonies for years, with the most recent, seemingly solid news coming from director Richard Donner saying that a sequel to The Goonies is in development. This is one of those situations where that's been said so many times before hat we'll only believe it when we see it. Still, it's cool that an actor like Josh Brolin still embraces his past association with a movie like that, especially when Christian Bale doesn't seem to want anything to do with The Newsies. So Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Brolin on "The Tonight Show" to honor The Goonies on its 30th anniversary. Watch!

Here's Josh Brolin celebrating The Goonies with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on NBC:

Considering The Goonies panel that was supposed to happen at Comic-Con got canceled, we're betting that plans that Donner was talking about back in April aren't as solid as he hoped. But if cast members like Brolin are happy to come back when a script gets in the right position, then fans certainly shouldn't give up hope. They just have to accept the fact that all the actors might be in walkers and wheelchairs by the time the film gets made. At this point, it would probably serve studios better if they just did a straight-up reboot, not unlike what seems to be happening with Paul Feig's female version of Ghostbusters. Thoughts?

Christian Bale is a wanker, Brolin is cool though.

Wonder if Bale feels the same way about Empire of the Sun? Granted I never watched more than (or at least remember) 5 mins of Newsies, but Empire of the Sun is one of the greatest films of my childhood.

Seeing as how all the sequels to classic 80's and 90's movies have turned out....I don't want a sequel in fear they'll simply ruin it for me

Exact thoughts.

My goodness. This is great. Brolin is a great sport.

I think worst sequels of an cult 80s classic would go to The Lost Boys. Man, what a fucking train wreck those are. Just leave em alone. Do something new. Maybe pay an homage to Goonies but..eh..dont need a mediocre sequel.

I agree.
