Warner Bros. are reportedly in talks with Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment about the potability of remaking or rebooting the 80’s horror/comedy Gremlins.
According to Vulture;
“negotiations of this sort have happened several times over the years, but making Spielberg’s deal always proved too daunting a financial prospect and his involvement might simply be a requirement for making the film at all, so don’t hold your breath. Having said all of that, our sources tell us that it might just actually come off this time.”
Vulture also say that Mr Spielberg, who was the Executive Producer for the 1984 Christmas classic (it is in my house), would not be directing the new version.
Joe Dante, who Directed the original movie spoke before on the topic of a Gremlins reboot saying;
“It’s a title in their library that sooner or later will be re-exploited. You can’t obviously do a sequel to the second picture because the cast is too old and I don’t know that that’s the way they’re thinking. I think they’d probably reboot the whole thing and start all over or go in a different direction… take the Gremlins someplace else.”
What do you think? Would you like a sequel to Gremlins: The New Batch? A Prequel? A reboot? Or maybe just leave well enough alone? Let us know in the comments.
