'The Goonies' Heading to Broadway?
The Goonies, the Steven Spielberg-produced and Richard Donner-directed film, may have plans for Broadway?
Unconfirmed rumors from JoBlo.com state Donner "is actively pushing forward to get [The Goonies]off the ground as a Broadway play version of the original" and Warner Brothers is "enthusiastically in support of it…Donner specified that while he will not be directing, he intends on taking on the role of producer and wants 'creative influence' over the production."
The Goonies (1985) tells the adventurous story of a group of suburban kids who – with the help of a secret pirate's map – find themselves in an underground world of caves, booby traps, crooks and a befriending a tortured monster, Sloth.
The Goonies features a screenplay by Christopher Columbus (director of the movie-musical adaptation of Rent).
