    Director Richard Donner, who helmed the 1985 classic The Goonies, and Steven Spielberg, who executive produced it and co-wrote the script with "Harry Potter" series director Chris Columbus, have purchased a sequel script and are pushing to get it made.

    "We're trying desperately," Donner told MTV. "We're just trying to get Warner Bros., who owns it, to say yes."

    The sequel would reunite the original cast, which included Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin and others, with a new bunch of suburban kids, Donner said.

    "The new group is called the Groonies, because they happen to live in a town where [Data], the Chinese kid, lives ... and he's got an electronics repair shop and all the kids hang out at his shop. He has this Chinese accent and he calls the Goonies the Groonies, and so the new kids call themselves the Groonies, until they get into a situation where the old Goonies have to save the new Groonies, or vice versa."

    Donner would not say much more about the plot or the casting but said Astin's character, Mikey, would be prominent, and Jeff Cohen's Chunk would return.

    I think the guy that played Sloth (John Matuszak or something) died. That'll be interesting.

    But, I agree.... it has potential to suck.
