Stephen: Goonies series coming to Fox
Amblin Entertainment announced Thursday that it will adapt The Goonies… kind of, as ScreenCrush reports. The show will feature three students in a small town as they attempt to recreate the original movie. “The students’ passion will inspire a town in desperate need of hope in this love letter to the power of cinema, storytelling and dreams,” Amblin said. The pilot will be written by Sarah Watson, and Superbad director Greg Mottola will direct.
As a huge fan of the original movie, I would prefer this to a straight up remake which would be completely unnecessary. Because the original is perfect.
