‘Lost Boys’ actor Corey Feldman is a staple of 80s feature films and cult classics. Two of his most well-known roles include the talkative Clark “Mouth” Devereaux in 1985’s coming-of-age movie ‘The Goonies’ and Jason Voorhees’ twelve-year-old target Tommy Jarvis in ‘Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.’
In a recent interview with Dread Central, Feldman discussed returning to these roles and pitching the idea of a crossover between the ‘Halloween’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ franchises.
“I got a call from New Line who said, ‘We want to meet with you and talk to you about doing a Friday the 13th thing, do you have any thoughts?’” He said, “And based on that early idea [I had for Jason vs Michael Myers], I said ‘Well, yeah, I like the idea of Jason coming back and looking for Tommy Jarvis and having the whole H20 kind of vibe.’ Where it would be me coming back playing the original character for the first time as an adult and the fight between Tommy and Jason. So like do Tommy vs Jason.”
“Or you could add another layer to it,” Feldman opined. “…you could bring in Danielle [Harris] from Halloween and she could reprise her role as an adult and I could reprise my role as an adult, and how cool would that be? Is that not the wet dream of every horror movie fan from the 80s?“
When asked about a possible sequel to ‘The Goonies,’ he expressed his disappointment that there has not been any movement in that direction.
“Well, Sean Astin and Josh Brolin want a sequel but you know. It’s one of those powers that be things,” he said according to Celebretainment. “Every time I thought, ‘OK, it’s really gonna happen’, I’ve been let down and had my heart broken.”
He added, “And Chris Columbus even said on the call with all of us, and in subsequent emails, ‘Guys I’m so inspired, I’m actually writing again. Like I’m gonna do this. We’re gonna do this. We’re doing this.’ And then, nothing.”
While rumors about a sequel to ‘The Goonies’ has been circling since 2007, Fox did order a pilot for television remake from ‘The Bold Type’ creator Sarah Watson in 2020. The pilot was canceled in May 2021, according to Deadline.
