There were rumors flying around a while back about a Goonies sequel getting made. It was supposed to involve all the characters coming back together as adults for a treasure hunt (or something like that).
Well, now The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Warner Bros. is making a movie called The Treehouse Gang. And it’s about six adult characters who come together to hunt treasure, just like they did when they were kids. Of course life-lesson-learning and inner-child-finding no doubt ensue.
Kent Alterman, the director of Semi-Pro is attached to direct.
This sounds like a good movie…but it’d be so much cooler if it were a Goonies movie. That way we’d have the backstory already in our heads, we’d know who the characters used to be, and we’d connect on a whole other level (if it were done well).
Or maybe this should be a modern-day sequel of The Monster Squad. That would be fan-flippin’-tastic.
