What will the focus of The Goonies 2 be, and will Sean Astin and Corey Feldman be returning?

Since director Richard Donner revealed earlier in the year that a sequel was being planned for The Goonies, it's been a case of waiting it out for more details to emerge. Donner revealed that Steven Spielberg had come up with the idea of the project, and also said at first that he hoped that the original cast would look to reprise their roles.

Chatting to E! Online, Sean Astin for a start is very much on board, assuming he gets the call.

"My first thought when Dick said he was doing that was like, ‘alright, maybe this time it's true!' I hope it's true", Astin admitted. "I certainly like the idea of doing it. I don't know if I'd be in it or not. If they really wanted us to be in it, I'm sure there would be some way to work it out".

Astin also confirmed that Corey Feldman would be happy to return as well. "He's fired up! He's ready to go!", he said.

So: will the new film focus on the kids of the original Goonies? "I think that's what they want to do", Astin admitted. "I think they want to focus primarily on the kids. I think the audience may be split on that, so they're trying to figure that out".
