The Goonies Star Sean Astin Has Penned An Open Letter To Fans Of The Cult Film Urging Them To Respect The Site Of His Movie Home Following The Owner's Decision To Lock Out The Public.
Homeowner Sandi Preston recently placed large blue tarpaulins over the windows and door at the front of her Astoria, Oregon house and put up a sign on the street which reads: "Access Closed to Goonies House", after she became sick of hundreds of fans stopping by unannounced.
Preston had reportedly been dealing with rude fans for some time, with tourists ignoring 'no-parking' zones and even showing up at night, leaving empty beer bottles and cigarette butts on the lawn.
After hearing the news, Astin, who played Mikey Walsh in the action adventure movie when he was just 14 years old, posted a missive on his Facebook.com page on Friday (21Aug15), pleading to his followers to treat the home where his onscreen family lived with reverence.

The Owner Of The House Featured In Cult Film The Goonies Has Locked Out The Public Because Too Many Film Fans Have Trashed The Site In Recent Years.
The Astoria, Oregon house was used as the Walsh family home, where young Sean Astin and Josh Brolin's characters lived in the 1985 adventure film.
Homeowner Sandi Preston purchased the property more than a decade ago, when fan visits were minimal, but, over the years the house has become a Mecca for the film's devotees, and this summer (15) alone, city officials estimate between 1,200 and 1,500 people per day stopped by, unannounced.
Preston has had enough of the uninvited guests and this week (begs17Aug15), she placed large blue tarpaulins over the windows and door at the front of the house and put up a sign on the street which reads: "Access Closed to Goonies House".

A planned The Goonies cast reunion at this weekend's (24-27Jul14) Comic-Con has been cancelled due to scheduling issues.
The stars of the 1985 movie, including Sean Astin and Josh Brolin, were slated to come together for The Goonies Never Say Die panel at the annual San Diego, California event on Thursday (24Jul14), but an organiser for the panel cites "talent scheduling conflicts and unforeseen circumstances" for the last-minute cancellation.
Earlier this year (14), director Richard Donner revealed a sequel to The Goonies is in the works, and that he had high hopes of bringing Astin, Brolin and Corey Feldman back for the follow-up.
The Lost Boys star popped up during the web event on HuffPost Live and wanted to know if Astin had heard anything new about a follow-up to the beloved 1985 film.
Feldman asked, "Sean, my question to you is what's happening with Goonies 2?"
Feldman took out the order after he let the woman stay in the property but she refused to leave the house, reports Tmz.com.
He struggled to evict her from the building as Californian squatters rights' apparently protected the unwelcome guest.
The woman was allegedly arrested on Saturday before being released on bail in the early hours of Sunday morning (20May12).

The former child star was due to host a live question-and-answer session but he postponed the interactive online chat after losing his voice.
He took to his Twitter.com page to apologise for the cancellation, writing, "Hey everyone, sadly I awoke with laryngitis this morning and will not be able to chat as I have no voice. The live event will be rescheduled. "My deepest apologies to all."
The movie, starring Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman, tells the story of a group of children who go in search of a pirate's treasure and the story has now been re-written as a song-and-dance stage show.
Donner admits transforming the film into a musical has been a long, arduous process, but he's convinced the show will be a hit.
He tells Empire, "It's been taking forever, but that long process just got a lot shorter. There's a great writer/producer called Tim Long who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment of The Goonies as a musical, and it's friggin' great!"

And journalists are happy to lead features and articles about him with quips he makes about returning as Brandon Walsh.
He says, "People refuse to let go of this film... It's gotten so I've told interviewers, 'We're all planning the sequel and I'm meeting with Meryl Streep about it,' and the next day, I've actually seen it reported as exclusive news."
Brolin has previously stated he fears the sequel will never happen, even though there's a script doing the rounds in Hollywood.

The movie, in which Brolin played Brandon Walsh, was recently voted the 1980s film fans would most like to see remade - and the actor insists that's more likely than a mythical sequel - which really does exist.
He says, "I saw (Goonies co-writer) Steven Spielberg on the street about a month and a half ago and I asked the reality. I hear there is a script, yes, but there's no talk about doing a Goonies sequel at this very moment."
