DREW BARRYMORE TALKS E.T. SEQUEL


Drew Barrymore is usually pretty chatty on late-night, and Wednesday on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, she was as loquacious as ever. She opened up about the possibility of a sequel to 1982’s beloved E.T., which could conceivably feature her (Gertie) and brother’s (Elliott) kids. "I will say that in the early '80s there was not a lot of talk of sequels," Barrymore explained, adding that people from director Steven Spielberg's camp had expressed interest in follow-ups to his biggest hits, including Jaws. "But he never wanted to make them, because he felt like what he did is just what it should be." She also floated the possibility of another film with frequent costar Adam Sandler. "Adam and I talk all the time about our next thing, and we're like, 'But we're so fat, we're so old, what the heck?'" she joked. "Literally the last thing I suggested to him was, like, [1981 film] On Golden Pond? I just watched it on a Korean flight home in, like, the classics section. ...It's really boring though, I'm into Planes, Trains and Automobiles with Adam."
