This isn't the first time the alleged plot of the sequel has been released. A few years back, Ain't Cool News claimed part 2 would follow the grown-up members of the original gang as they scoured the Rocky Mountains in search of Native American treasure.
MTV News recently interviewed director Richard Donner, who revealed more details:
"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 Groonies 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 is getting on in years. Did he really mean "Groonies" with an "r"? Maybe he was drunk on cough syrup.
No word on whether or not the new G(r)oonies will go looking for pirate or Indian booty. At the rate the production is preceding, it may be 2021 before we ever find out.
The story will be added to the G(r)oonies section of the site later today. The security block on Blog's company computer no longer allows access to Geocites. $#@%@#!
