The Goonies director Richard Donner confirmed the news to TMZ, adding that Spielberg has come up with an idea for the sequel’s storyline.
The news must be a relief to fans of the 1985 original, the knowledge of Oscar-winning Spielberg who served as writer, producer and second unit director on the original Goonies film is attached to the follow-up. The Goonies is a much loved favourite and is still popular today, news of a sequel was met with some trepidation from fans but with the reunion of Spielberg and Donner fans can look forward to the follow-up.
What’s even more exciting is that Donner has shared that they’re trying to get the original cast back together. Whilst it »

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial told the story of a young boy who discovers an extra-terrestrial — often referred to as a goblin before they find out its true origins — and forms a loving, brotherly relationship with it as he struggles with his parents’ recent separation. Between the amazing child acting in the film (more on that later), the wonders of an animatronic alien with facial expressions as real as mine or yours, and the tear-inspiring story, »

Why is "Seven Samurai" considered one of the greatest films ever made? I'd answer that by telling you to go watch it right now, but you probably don't have 3 hours and 27 minutes free at the moment. (It goes by super fast, though, which is one of the reasons the movie is great.)
One reason is simply the movie's vast influence. Released 60 years ago this week in Japan (on April 26, 1954), Akira Kurosawa's epic has had an incalculable impact on adventure filmmaking for six decades. Some of your favorite movies owe a huge debt to "Seven Samurai," and you may not even realize it.
The movie's plot has proved simple but durable: The residents of a farming village are beset by roving bandits until they hire a septet of ronin to defend them. Despite the lengthy running time, that's pretty much it, plus a lot of character development so that you »

In a way, the coverline of the 300th issue of Empire says it all. "Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Joss Whedon, Francis Ford Coppola, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Singer, Michael Mann, Guillermo Del Toro, Edgar Wright, Danny Boyle, John Woo, David Lynch, Cameron Crowe and many more..." All of these megaphone wielders have taken over their own chunk of our tricentenary extravaganza, but the emphasis should really be on the "and many more..." because our official birthday is jam-packed.As well as all those big names, there are also exclusive reports from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Warcraft and Jurassic World, not forgetting Dumb And Dumber To, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For and the definitive report from this year's Empire Awards, on top of even more Hollywood helmers whose names we just couldn't fit on the front cover.There's so much more: we were John McTiernan's first in-depth interview after »
The Goonies remains one of my earliest cinematic obsessions. I worshipped Richard Donner.s spunky, messy kids-on-an-adventure fantasy. I bought an Army bomber jacket that looked like Data.s and filled the pockets with "Booby traps." I begged my parents to vacation in Oregon, convinced I could stumble on a labyrinth of underground tunnels and caves. It was pretty unhealthy for a while. So news that Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg and the entire Goonies clan might want to get the treasure-hunting band back together for The Goonies 2 nearly 30 years later conjures this strange concoction of excitement, nostalgia and dread. Sure, we want to see where The Goonies 2 might go, especially if . as Donner has said . Spielberg came up with the idea of a story. But do we want to see 42-year-old Corey Feldman swinging from the mast of a new pirate ship, while 46-year-old Josh Brolin tries to »
The gossip site recently tracked down Goonies director Richard Donner, who played news of the sequel as close to the chest as possible ("What's The Goonies?" he responded when initially asked about the follow-up), but did let slip that "of course" Mr. »
Rocco, who has been the head of U’s domestic distribution since 1996, will retain a consulting position with the studio. While Universal has not yet named her successor, it is likely the studio will promote from within and tap Nicholas Carpou, who currently serves as co-president of distribution.
Throughout her time as one of the longest-running employees at Universal over 47 years, Rocco has managed to survive six separate corporate owners, as well as many more executive regime changes, including the recent ousting of former Uni topper Adam Fogelson, with NBCUni exec Jeff Shell named chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment and Donna Langley upped to Universal Pictures chair.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks work really well together, and they tend to develop amazing projects together. Some of those projects include Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal, Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, and The Pacific. They are teaming up again to bring us a film set during the Cold War. Hanks is attached to star in the project, and Spielberg is in talks to direct.
The film will be based on the true story revolving around "James Donovan (Hanks), a prominent American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to slip behind the Iron Curtain to negotiate the release of a pilot captured when his U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia."
I'd love to see Hanks and Spielberg work together again, and I don't see why they wouldn't on a project like this. Spielberg has yet to choose his next project and has »

After the critical and commercial success of Lincoln Steven Spielberg is taking his time choosing a follow up directing gig. He was set to helm an adaptation of Daniel H Wilson’s novel Robopocalypse, but decided to sideline it until he can get the script right.
Variety is reporting that Spielberg may decide to tackle another project with Tom Hanks. The film in question is a Cold War thriller based on the exploits of James Donovan (Hanks), “a prominent American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to slip behind the iron curtain to negotiate the release of a pilot captured when his U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia.”
The film is being written by Matt Charman.

If all goes well Hanks will play attorney James Donovan. It seems Donovan was one of the movers and shakers of the twentieth century – he prosecuted major Nazi figures at Nuremberg, defended an important Russian spy and negotiated with Fidel Castro for the release of captured soldiers after the Bay of Pigs.
Spielberg’s project will follow Donovan’s negotiations to secure the release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.
Of course the promise of Spielberg and Hanks will have the movie industry salivating. Their work together on Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, Catch Me If You Can and Band of Brothers was Hollywood gold.

Rumors of a "Goonies" sequel have been around for almost as long as the beloved 1985 children's flick itself, though director Richard Donner fanned the flames recently by saying publicly that he was committed to making "Goonies 2" happen. While most fans will probably wait to see it to believe it, Donner added one more log to the fire this weekend when he told TMZ that there's already a story for the follow-up in mind -- and it was concocted by none other than Steven Spielberg.
Donner dropped that astonishing bomb while speaking with TMZ cameras in Beverly Hills not too long ago. Though he initially stopped short of saying anything definitive about the sequel -- and in fact remarked, "You have to ask Steven," when pressed for information on the project's prospects -- Donner told the site that Spielberg already had the perfect concept in mind.
"Hopefully we're going to get this done, »

The film will chronicle the story of Donovan, who helped to negotiate the release of American spy plane pilot Gary Powers after his aircraft was shot down in 1960 in Soviet Union airspace, during the height of political tensions between the two. »

Falling Skies returns to our screens in June. Here's the trailer for season 4...
TNT's Falling Skies has come a long way since it first debuted back in 2011. Created by Robert Rodat and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the show got off to a decent start, which it has built on well. And whilst season three's ratings were a little down on previous years, it continues to do well outside of the Us. Furthermore, TNT was confident enough to order the longest run yet for season four.
As such, Falling Skies season four will run for 12 episodes rather than ten, and it's set to kick off from June 22nd 2014. A trailer for the show's return has also been released, and you can see that right here...

Earlier this month Richard Donner broke the news that the long-gestating sequel to the 1980s classic The Goonies could finally be moving forward, and now the director has offered a brief update on the movie, confirming Steven Spielberg’s involvement, and revealing that it was Spielberg who came up with the story for the follow-up.
“Hopefully we’re going to get this done,” Donner told TMZ. “Steven came up with the idea of doing a sequel after 30 years. You don’t do it without him. We’ve been trying for a while, but then he came up with another storyline and he’s right on.”
Asked about the possibility of the original cast returning, Donner replied: “God knows. It’s up to them. If they have any sense they will, and if they don’t they won’t.”
