The Goonies Sean Astin

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 Goonies Heading To The Stage


The Goonies Richard Donner

The Goonies director Richard Donner has confirmed he's in talks to bring the popular 1985 film to Broadway in a new musical.

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!"
