As a brief coda to an interview about the upcoming No Country for Old Men, Cinematical had the chance to ask Josh Brolin if he had been approached about the rumored Goonies project that's been mused about and hinted at over the past few months. (Sean Astin calls it an "absolute certainty"; noting Astin's post-Rings resume, you might suggest that's wishful thinking on his part.) Brolin, obviously bemused at the line of questioning, stated that he hasn't been contacted -- and offered his thoughts on the possibility. Look for Cinematical's full interview with Brolin about his non-One-Eyed-Willie-related work next week; the full transcript of Brolin's remarks is below.

Cinematical: There's one final thing that my editor basically put a gun to my head and told me to ask you ...

Josh Brolin: ... But it's ultimately your choice ...

Cinematical: ... I know, but I am a little bit curious as well; there have been rumors and rumblings that Warners is going around to the cast of The Goonies and talking to them about getting back together. ...

JB: Haven't heard a word.

Cinematical:
If they asked you, are there limits to nostalgia? Or would you go back to it, as a lark?

JB: I don't know; it depends on the story ... I mean, it has nothing to do with (nostalgia); you know, they gave me my break, so that's a huge thing for me. And it's not like Spielberg or Dick Donner are slouches; they're great filmmakers ... I don't know; I haven't heard anything about it. I don't know what those actors are doing; Martha Plimpton, I run into once in a while; I think she's an amazing actress. But would it be smart to do that? Would it take away from the original film, and how great that was? Is it a business decision? Do we feel like we can make some money off it, because it is such a childhood classic? I don't know. Maybe I'll be some great alcoholic homeless character in the boondocks of Astoria, Oregon ... That would be fun.
