Another year, another summer, another argument about the Song of the Summer. Is it “This Is What You Came For,” or “No Problem”? It’s neither, nor is it any other song on Uproxx’s bracket (you should still vote, though!). The real Song of the Summer is “Lickety Splickety.” Or maybe “4 My Love.” Or possibly “Remember 222 (Corey’s Song).” I can’t decide — all I know is that it’s some song from Corey Feldman’s new double album, Angelic 2 the Core.
While promoting Angelic — which you’re certain to hear booming from every car stereo until September — Feldman discussed The Goonies 2 and, with all due respect to co-star Sean Astin (who hasn’t released one album, let alone five), why it’s never going to happen. “Richard Donner is 87 years old,” “Mouth” told MovieWeb. “No one really wants to make it without him.”
“He says it’s still alive. But as we all know… When you get to that age, things slow down quite a bit. There is a big possibility that he might not want to keep driving it. So, I think without him, it doesn’t happen. And every day that passes, that he doesn’t do it, there is less and less chance that it is ever going to happen at all.” (Via MovieWeb)
This is a different story than the one Astin is telling. The Goonies is “bigger than even Steven [Spielberg], who created it. It’s bigger than Richard Donner, who breathed such strong life into it,” he said last year, adding, “It’s not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made.” Let me rephrase that for Astin: It’s not a question of if, but rather of when Donner will jam out to Angelic 2 the Core and feel reenergized enough to make Goonies 2.
