Sean Astin joined HuffPost Live Wednesday to answer questions from fans.
He was surprisingly joined by Goonies co-star Corey Feldman and asked the question that not too many people want to know,
"What's happening with 'Goonies 2?' That's what everybody wants to know. What are we doing?!"
To which Astin responded,
"I happen to know that they are actively trying to secure a writer based on an outline that they feel really confident about. When Steven (Spielberg), who ultimately is the decision-maker on this, when he has felt the magic and he and 'Goonies' director Richard Donner are in agreement, which I believe will happen, then it will be a thing,"
The two hinted that Chris Columbus the man behind the original screenplay will have something to do with it.
