Explained Donner, “We’re going to do an Off-Broadway, do you know what immersion theatre is? Where there’s no seats, the venue is you go into a warehouse and there’s something happening in that warehouse and that’s the play you’ve come to see, only you become part of it and you travel through with actors.”

“It’s very popular now,” he continued. “We’re doing one on The Goonies. It will take another year or so but it’s going to be wonderful.”

As for a potential sequel, Donner gave that question a “maybe” because Goonies never say die.
