Producer Reveals Details About ‘The Goonies’ Surprise Remake For Disney+

Surprise for ‘The Goonies’ fans!

According to Variety, the classic and beloved 1980s feature will get a series remake by Disney+ and, according to producer Gail Berman, will accompany a group of aspiring filmmakers trying to recreate the film directed by Richard Donner, scene by stage. stage.

In an interview with the website they’re on, Berman said the idea was born out of a conversation involving a similar premise, but about another iconic production – “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

“It’s a partnership between me, Amblin, and Lauren Shuler Donner. When I was at Paramount, there were these boys doing a movie about Raiders of the Lost Ark, a scene-by-scene remake. That made a splash at the time and the studio was pretty upset about it,” he said. “I thought it was an amazing idea and it always stuck in my head – how can you take an idea like that and turn it into a TV series?”

Berman continues, “We needed an amazing writer and great partners, so we pitched the idea to Amblin and they loved it. Sarah Watson is our designer. The series tells the story of a town and a family through the lens of “Friday Night Lights”, and this is where they recreate “The Goonies”.

The project is titled “Our Time” and apart from the aforementioned information, no other details have been revealed.

Remember that the original film is available on HBO Max.

Following a mysterious treasure map through incredible underground passages, treacherous traps and an ancient pirate ship full of gold doubloons, the boys race to stay one step ahead of a family of villains… and an adorable monster with a face only a mother could love.

Released in 1985, the feature has become a children’s icon over the generations, also becoming one of the most screened films in Globo’s Sessão da Tarde segment.

Directed by Donner, from a story born from the mind of Steven Spielberg, the family comedy was responsible for launching the careers of actors Sean Astin and Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman.

“The Goonies” shows the adventures of children and teenagers in search of the treasure of the pirate Willy One-Eyed to save their family from financial crisis.

The second film, which had been canceled, would reunite the whole gang of the first (adults, of course) and their children, who would have to do the same thing as their parents: save the city.
