Tributes Pour In For Goonies, Lethal Weapon Director Richard Donner


Richard Donner, who made his name in Hollywood directing Superman (1978), The Goonies (1985), and the Lethal Weapon film series, passed away today at the age of 91.

Donner’s legacy as a director, as well as a producer of films such as The Lost Boys, Free Willy series, X-Men, and Any Given Sunday, is undisputed, and fans and former colleagues alike are letting the world know how much they appreciated him. Sean Astin, who played a leading role as Mikey in The Goonies, tweeted fond memories of working with Donner in the 1980s.

Steven Spielberg, who wrote and produced The Goonies, echoed Astin’s sentiments and gave his own thoughts on Donner’s personality in a statement via his production company, Amblin Entertainment.

“Dick had such a powerful command of his movies, and was so gifted across so many genres. Being in his circle was akin to hanging out with your favorite coach, smartest professor, fiercest motivator, most endearing friend, staunchest ally, and—of course—the greatest Goonie of all. He was all kid. All heart. All the time. I can’t believe he’s gone, but his husky, hearty laugh will stay with me always.”

Kevin Smith, an accomplished director in his own right, tweeted and acknowledged the the impact Donner has had and will continue to have in the film industry with Superman and Lethal Weapon.


Dan Slott, a famous comic book writer, also praised Richard Donner’s ingenuity in directing Superman.

Donner was 91. No cause of death has been revealed.
