Josh Brolin has learned to stop joking about a sequel to "The Goonies" because fans are so obsessed by the 1985 movie, they'll believe anything he says.
And journalists are happy to lead features and articles about him with quips he makes about returning as Brandon Walsh.
He says, "People refuse to let go of this film...It's gotten so I've told interviewers, 'We're all planning the sequel and I'm meeting with Meryl Streep about it,' and the next day, I've actually seen it reported as exclusive news."
Brolin has previously stated he fears the sequel will never happen, even though there's a script doing the rounds in Hollywood.
He recently said, "I saw (Goonies co-writer) Steven Spielberg on the street and I asked for the reality (of a sequel). I hear there is a script, yes, but there's no talk about doing a Goonies sequel at this very moment."
