HollywoodNews.com: What a bummer.
At a recent celebration for the 25th anniversary release of 1985 cult film “The Goonies” on DVD, Richard Donner and cast members squashed rumors that a sequel might happen.
“There have been talks for so many years and I know that a lot of us are for it,” Jonathan Ke Quan (Data) told Collider. “But honestly, I don’t think it’s ever going to happen, if it was going to happen it would’ve happened many years ago.”
Co-star Corey Feldman (Mouth) mentioned that there were several scripts for sequels, but none gained momentum.
“If Richard Donner was at the helm and Steven Spielberg got behind it, yeah I’d be there,” said Feldman, “But at this point I don’t think it’s going to happen because we’re all getting too old.”
Spielberg was the exec producer on the first “Goonies” which also starred a number of young actors who have gone on to major successes in Hollywood including Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Joe Pantoliano. Released in the summer of 1985, “Goonies” minted over $61 million at the domestic box office.

HollywoodNews.com: What a bummer.
HollywoodNews.com: By Kelcey Bridges: Lets face it, teen idols grown up. One minute they’re singing “Lets Get Together” in “The Parent Trap” – and the next, they’re inmate #2409752. Well, maybe that’s just Lindsay Lohan. Either way, they don’t stay young forever. Just ask Kirk Cameron, Corey Feldman and Drew Barrymore. In 2010, we have quite a few teen stars of our own – but where will they wind up in 10 years?
For now: He’s the latest teen sensation sweeping the nation. However, soon his voice will change and he won’t stay 16 forever. Will the “Bieber fever” die out?
In 10 years: Biebs will be in his mid 20’s – 26 to be exact – and I have a feeling much of his popularity will follow him into adulthood, along with his swagger. However, that all depends on how well he can grow and evolve along with his fan base. And yes, he’ll probably still be sporting the same ‘do in 10 years.
Prediction: Pop mogul/Ladies man.
For now: Miley is so preoccupied with showing the world how she is “all grown up” that in turn it is proving that she clearly is not grown up. At 17, she’s quickly made the transition from Disney star to tabloid fodder. Between revealing photos, compromising videos and scandals, Miley has weathered more bad press then celebrities twice her age. Don’t be in a rush to grow up there Miss Cyrus…
In 10 years: Does Miley have staying power? Her antics won’t be cute and catchy when she’s 27 and nearing the big 3-0. Some have ventured to say that she’s on the pathway of becoming the next LiLo, and while I don’t think she’ll be in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon, she should follow Linds as an example of what not to do.
Prediction: Meltdown and “comeback,” B. Spears style.
For now: This Jo-Bro sure has a lot on his plate. Whether it’s touring with his brother’s, or venturing out on his solo gig – Nick always seems to be working. Despite being the youngest brother at 17, he certainly isn’t a stranger to the Hollywood dating scene.
In 10 years: Nick’s oldest bro, Kevin, got married at 22 – and I think Nick will follow suit. Maybe he won’t be settling down at 22, but I’d venture to say he’ll definitely be wed by the time he is 27.
Prediction: Married with four kids.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST REPORT

hollywoodnews.com: Mickey Rooney serenaded the Michael Jackson fans at the Beverly Hilton tonight. The 85 year old entertainer was a child movie star.
Corey Feldman made a speech.
Genevieve Jackson, Randy’s daughter, performed. But Randy Jackson has made proclamations denouncing the whole event tonight.
Whatever. There was also supposed to be a performance by Marshall Thompson, the remaining member of the R&B group The Chi-Lites. Thompson has become Joseph Jackson’s bucket boy, following him around and saying he’s got a record label with Jackson.
Both Katherine and Joseph Jackson showed up. Katherine was supposed to sign copies of her book, “Never Can Say Goodbye.”
The money from the event at the Beverly Hilton is supposed to go to Jackson Family Foundation even though it doesn’t exist and has no registration for a 501 c3 designation. Insiders say the foundation organizers may try and use an existing foundation and merge with them, by passing regular registration.
Sources say tables were full and people are standing at the BHH ballroom. Tickets ranged from $105 to $500 VIP seats.

Hollywoodnews.com: Are you ready to feel old?
Richard Donner’s masterpiece — and yes, I do mean masterpiece — “The Goonies” celebrates its 25th anniversary this November with a treasure-laden “Collector’s Edition” release as well as the first-ever Blu-ray rendition of the classic kids-and-pirates adventure.
“Goonies” always was an obsession. It’s one of those films that had such a profound impact on me as I was forming my film conscience. I even begged my parents to vacation in oregon one summer so that we could explore the same caves plundered by Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, Keri Green, Martha Plimpton, Josh Brolin, Ke Hoy Quan and the rest of the Goonies in 1985. We never made it. Hopefully this collector’s edition set fills that void.
Due on Nov. 2, the “Goonies” set will come with a new board game, collectible storyboard prints, a 1985 souvenir magazine with behind-the-scenes stories about the actual filming in Astoria, Oregon (including the production design that transformed Astoria into the “Goon Docks”), and a reprint of a 2009 article with updates of the entire cast, as well as producer Steven Spielberg and director Richard Donner.
Some fans already started celebrating. A series of events were held in Oregon last weekend to honor the film. Several of the original cast members reportedly attended the four-day event, with Warner Bros. Consumer Products throwing its support behind the “Goon Docks,” a retro-retail pop-up shop in Astoria that boasts plenty of Goonies merchandise.
The Goonies experience isn’t limited to home video, however. Donner’s film will be available On Demand from cable and satellite providers, and for permanent download and digital rental through iTunes, Amazon Video On Demand, PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Zune Video Marketplace.
As for the discs, they will round out with a cast-and-crew commentary track, a “Making of” documentary, deleted scenes, trailers, and the music video for Cyndi Lauper’s “The Goonies ‘R Good Enough.”

Corey Haim who was the star of “The Lost Boys,” “License to Drive” and frequently co-starred alongside Corey Feldman, was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment on March 10. Police had originally cited the death as an “accidental overdose,” as he had had a long drug history and had battled with addiction for some time.
Now the coroner’s office has released a report stating that the cause of death was due to natural causes, reports Radar Online. They report that the toxicology tests showed that “no contributing factors” were involved, ruling out any suspicion of drug use. The report lists the cause as diffused alveolar damage, community acquired pneumonia, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with coronary arteriosclerosis.

Upon hearing that Corey Haim had passed away Wednesday morning, many probably though, “I wonder what Corey Feldman thinks of this?” Wednesday night, we found out. Feldman, who co-starred alongside Haim in several films and a short-lived reality television program, appeared on “Larry King Live” last night to discuss Haim’s death. The actor said he was “in shock” over the news because when he last saw Haim a few days prior, his friend “was fine.” “He was actually giving me some advice about something I was very upset about,” Feldman said. “He was being very positive.”
Feldman would not confirm reports that Haim died of a drug overdose, saying, “Until the coroner’s report comes out and until we get specific evidence and until we know exactly what the toxicology report says, nobody knows [anything], and nobody is going to know. “We are aware of the fact that Corey Haim has a long and detailed drug history and battled addiction for many, many years,” Feldman continued. “I know it better than anybody, because I’ve been the guy stuffing charcoal down his throat when he was [OD’ing]. I’ve been the guy trying to make him stand up or say a complete sentence. I’ve been through it with him many, many times, and it’s happened very badly and very intensely through the years.”
Discussing their future together, Feldman told the talk show host that the duo were planning their first movie together in 9 years. He also said Haim was busy pitching a sequel to their film, “License to Drive.” As a closing remark, Feldman told King, “Hopefully, (Haim’s) going to be remembered as a beautiful, funny, enigmatic character who brought nothing but life and light and entertainment and art to all of our lives.”
