Sean Astin is certain a sequel to ‘The Goonies’ will be made but he’s as in the dark as we are about the details.

'The Goonies' sequel is a goer apparently - but who's going to return?
The Goonies sequel could welcome back the opera-signing villain Jake Fratelli after the actor who played him, Robert Davi, said he was thrilled that Richard Donner is going to shoot the follow-up and wants to be a part of it. Davi told TMZ that he'd love to help Donner write the script to the sequel and has already mapped out the role of his character.
Because of Jake's love for opera, Robert explained that his character would now have a successful career performing the Great American Songbook with his brother Francis as his crooked manager. One Eyed Willie's ship has been tracked down using sonar technology, but the treasure trove is no longer board. Of course, Jake and Francis have a key piece of evidence that they've held onto for 30 years...evidence that will lead them to the gold. It actually sounds pretty good, right?

Donner was signing autographs in Beverly Hills when a photographer bombarded him with a series of questions regarding comic book and superhero films, but Donner took the opportunity to express his interest in making The Goonies 2. Although there have been rumours circulating about the possibility of a sequel to the children's classic, this is the first time it appears to have been unofficially confirmed by the director.
And thus the trilogy comes to a sweaty, silly end, with this remake of, believe it or not, 1943's I Walked with a Zombie. Here we have Jennifer Grey, still sporting the same hairdo from Ferris Bueller after all these years, as a disgraced medical doctor who, out of desperation, takes a job in Jamaica as a personal physician to a wealthy tycoon (Craig Sheffer) and his mysteriously sickly brother (Daniel Lapaine). What follows is -- you guessed it -- a ridiculous swirl into the world of voodoo done up the way only Hollywood can.

Assassins is essentially an updating of a well-established story line. Robert Rath (Stallone) is the best in the world at what he does--killing people for money. But he's getting tired of it all and wants out of the business. Unfortunately, you can't just give two weeks notice to your faceless hit contractor; it's a bit more difficult than that. So it's understandable that Rath barely flinches when he finds out Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas), the #2 assassin, is after him.

The story is typical Michael Critchon hooey, only shorn of all the techno-speak which his books use to cloud the sheer implausibility of their central conceits. An archaeological group on a dig in France finds a couple of interesting artifacts: one is a modern-day bifocal lens, the other a note from the dig's leader, Prof. Ed Johnston (Connolly), which is in his handwriting but dates from the 14th century. Just as this is discovered, the gang (mostly young attractive archaeologists and Walker, who was just there visiting his dad) is all summoned back to the desert headquarters of ITC, the big firm that's funding their dig. There, ITC's boss (David Thewlis, long MIA from Hollywood films) says that they've discovered how to send people back in time through a freakily-discovered wormhole to a spot in France circa 1357, and oh yeah, that they sent Johnston back there a couple days ago, he hasn't returned and they're starting to get worried about him. You see, that particular part of the world was at that time embroiled in a battle between the French and the English, meaning that there were lots of angry men on horses riding about looking for people to practice one-sided swordplay on.
