Lethal Weapon is heading to the small screen! Yes, a new TV series based on the popular action franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover is going to happen on Fox. It is coming from Warner Bros. TV, which also turned the popular buddy cop action comedy Rush Hour into a series that will debut early next year. No casting has been announced at this time.
The series will be an hour long drama, and it will follow the same basic plot as the movie. The show already has a put pilot commitment. The Pilot will be written by former Chuck executive producer Matt Miller. He most recently created the ABC drama Forever, also for Wbtv.
Like Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon is a pretty straight adaptation of the film series upon which it is based, and will center on the central characters of detectives Roger Murtaugh, the character originated by Mel Gibson, »
Rumors of a sequel to "The Goonies" began to surface soon after the flick was first released back in 1985, but fans have waited for more than 30 years with no luck. So will "Goonies 2" ever happen? According to one of its stars, it's only a matter of time.
In an interview with the Tulsa World, Sean Astin, who played Mikey in the flick, didn't provide any concrete details about plans for "Goonies 2." But the actor did say that the film has become such a phenomenon, that it's certainly ripe for a sequel -- in whatever form that may be.
"I have said and will always say, that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made," Astin told the World. "The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, »

For a while last year, it looked like the long-rumoured sequel to The Goonies was finally moving forward, with director Richard Donner revealing that many of the original stars of the 80s classic were on board to return. However, since then the project seems to have slipped back into development hell, with Donner backtracking on his earlier comments when announcing an off-Broadway stage production of the original movie earlier this month.
There has of course been talk of a Goonies 2 for the best part of the past thirty years, and according to Sean Astin – who played Mikey in the film – it’s a “100% mortal lock” that the sequel will happen at some point, although he’s unsure about whether he or the rest of the original cast will be back when it does:

The Goonies fans have questions, and Sean Astin kinda-sorta-not-really has some answers! The original star of the 1985 cult classic took to Facebook to address the ongoing rumors about whether or not there's going to be a sequel—and basically, the answer is yes. But nobody knows when that's going to happen. "I have always believed that there will be a Goonies Sequel, because Steven Spielberg told me in 1988 that he wanted to make one," Astin wrote on Facebook. "Richard Donner has said that it is in the works. Warner Brothers is enjoying a very successful merchandising experience with the 'title.' If it gets made in my lifetime, I will root for it, whether I'm in it or »
It feels like a sequel to The Goonies has been in some form of development for as long as I can remember, but according to Sean Astin (who played Mikey in the original), it's not a matter of if a sequel gets made, but rather, when it gets made. To promote his appearance at last week's Wizard World Tulsa, Astin sat down for an interview with TulsaWorld and naturally the possibility of a sequel... Read More »

With the original film celebrating its 30th birthday - how young does that make some of us feel? - work is continuing it seems on The Goonies 2. Director Richard Donner revealed that a follow-up was in the works later year, and whilst progress has not been quick, it is ongoing.
The latest to pour a bit of fuel on the project is Mikey himself, Mr Sean Astin, who told Tulsaworld that "I have said and will always say that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made". The article notes that Astin's declared it a '100 percent mortal lock that Goonies 2 will happen'.
"The precise makeup of it, I have no idea", he admitted. "Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, »
News of a Goonies sequel is never far off, and now Sean Astin has added that he is very confident it will happen - eventually.
The actor originally played the part of Michael 'Mikey' Walsh in the 1985 classic, and has admitted that a sequel is "not a question of if, but rather of when".
"I have said and will always say, that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made," he told Tulsa World.
"The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, no idea. But it doesn't matter."
It’s time for another updating on the long-gestating development of The Goonies 2 from one of the child cast members who is now all grown up, and surprisingly, they’re not sick of talking about the possibility yet. Sean Astin has been acting for decades, and while fans likely always want to ask him about Rudy […]

We've heard so much about The Goonies 2 over the last two years, that it sounds more like wishful thinking than anything else. But one strong believer in the sequel is Sean Astin. He insists that the movie will happen. No matter what. What he doesn't know is whether or not any of the original cast members will actually return. It's possible they won't. Jeff Cohen, who plays Chunk, already said he's sitting this one out. But the movie has such a strong presence in the pop lexicon, that Sean Astin knows for a fact that Warner Bros. isn't going to let it sit dormant much longer. This despite the fact that it has been exactly 30 years since the original opened in the summer of 1985.
Sean Astin is gearing up to appear at the 2015 Wizard World Tulsa pop culture convention, which happens October 24-25. To promote his appearance, he spoke with TulsaWorld. »
Hey you guyssssss — Chunk is looking good! Jeff Cohen, who played the lovable overweight kid in the 1985 classic The Goonies, looked unrecognizable while attending the Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmys event in L.A. on Friday, Sept. 18. It's been decades since Cohen, 41, shook his stomach in the Steven Spielberg-directed adventure comedy. The former actor has slimmed down, and now rocks a shaved head instead of brunette curls. "Chunk in Goonies," his Twitter bio reads. "(please don't hold that against me)." Cohen's days of searching for [...] »
Pop icon Cyndi Lauper teamed up with author and actor Harvey Fierstein (who you may recognise from Mrs. Doubtfire) to bring the story of Kinky Boots to the West End stage.

Fans of The Goonies are being heavily dissuaded from visiting the movie's filming locations, but soon enough they'll have a new way of interacting with the material. In a recent interview with Uproxx, director Richard Donner revealed that a special new off-Broadway show is in the works adapted from the 1985 release. This won't be the first professional stage version. A friend of mine played Data in a Fringe Festival musical titled Save the Goondocks! back in 2004. But this one sounds more official, if Donner is involved with it (he says "we're doing," so I guess he is). Still at least a year away from opening, this "wonderful" production is going to be different in another way, too. "Do you know what immersion theatre is?" Donner...

The truffle shuffle was undoubtedly one of the most memorable scenes from Richard Donner’s beloved 1985 classic The Goonies – in fact, it was so popular that the house that staged the hilarious stunt was shut down after the owner grew tired of fans recreating the famous sequence on the lawn. But if long-gestating sequel The Goonies 2 wants to pay homage to the truffle shuffle, it’ll need to find another actor.
While Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, and Josh Brolin have all expressed the interest in returning for the follow-up, Jeff Cohen (aka Chunk) has ruled himself out of reprising his role. Speaking in an interview with Yahoo, the original truffle shuffle star squashed hopes that he would be appearing alongside his fellow friends once again.
Look, being an actor is great, I miss being an actor. I think anyone who’s been an actor, you kind of miss it »

Goonies theatre production possible for an off-Broadway debut in near future Goonies theatre production set for off-Broadway?
A few months ago, a Back To The Future musical was announced, and now it looks like another 1980s movie favourite is heading to the stage as Richard Donner has announced that a Goonies theatre production is set for the near-future.
The project looks bound for New York, and is said to be an ‘immersive theater production,’ which Donner is actively involved in.
Donner, who directed the original Goonies movie, spoke with Yahoo! Movies.
“We’re going to do an off-Broadway, do you know what immersion theatre is? Where there’s no seats, the venue is you go into a warehouse and there’s something happening in that warehouse and that’s the play you’ve come to see, only you become part of it and you travel through with actors. It’s very popular now. »

Back in April of last year, Donner suggested that the long-rumoured big screen sequel to The Goonies was finally moving forward, although he appeared to downplay his earlier comments when asked about the status of the follow-up:

While a long-touted movie sequel to The Goonies may never happen, the classic movie will return next year as an immersive theatre experience.
Director Richard Donner told Yahoo! Movies the exciting news of the "off-Broadway" plans.
"Do you know what immersion theatre is?" Donner said.
"Where there's no seats, the venue is you go into a warehouse and there's something happening in that warehouse and that's the play you've come to see, only you become part of it and you travel through with actors. It's very popular now.
"We're doing one on The Goonies. It will take another year or so but it's going to be wonderful."
Donner refused to completely extinguish plans for a sequel, saying: "Maybe. Again, everything takes a long time to get it right. If you do things fast and quick and easy, »
If The Goonies 2 wants Chunk and the truffle shuffle back, they're going to need a new actor...
Progress doesn't appear to have been that quick on The Goonies 2, a movie that director Richard Donner revealed was happening in April 2014. Pretty much a year later, Chris Columbus - who wrote the first movie - gave an update, revealing that he, Donner and producer Steven Spielberg hadn't found a story they liked yet. But there's still at least a little momentum behind getting The Goonies 2 going.
If and when it does happen, though, there's going to be a notable absentee. For whilst Sean Astin would be expected back as Mikey, and Corey Feldman is reportedly up for a return as Mouth, one of the original cast who's definitely out is Jeff Cohen.
Cohen played Chunk in The Goonies, and brought the world the truffle shuffle. But whilst many of »
