Fox Television has begun development on a Goonies semi-reboot TV pilot revolving around a troubled teacher who attempts to create a shot-for-shot remake of the cult 1985 film alongside three students, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Here's the official description, via THR:

"After failing to make it in New York and carrying a heavy secret with her, Stella Cooper returns to her distressed automotive hometown to substitute teach. She finds inspiration, hope and ultimately salvation when she agrees to help three students who are pursuing their filmmaking dreams by putting on an impossibly ambitious shot-for-shot remake of one of their favorite movies — The Goonies. Over the course of the season of the potential series, their passion will inspire a town in desperate need of hope in this love letter to the power of cinema, storytelling and dreams."

In The Goonies, a group of young teens go on a treasure hunting adventure to find pirate gold - and save their town from greedy developers.

The untitled project is still in the pilot stage. It's produced by Adventureland's Greg Mottola.
