According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. has decided to put the brakes on their plans to bring us a sequel to the cult classic 80’s movie Gremlins, and instead are proceeding with a reboot of the franchise.
Word is that Dark Shadows writer/producer Seth Grahame-Smith and producing partner David Katzenberg – already raiding the back catalogues for a new Beetlejuice film – are on board to oversee the new movie.
Of course, it’s very early days on this one, with no writers or directors attached and not a hint as to casting. The Joe Dante original and its sequel hold a special place in our hearts here at FTN, so naturally, the idea of a reboot is causing us much concern. Still, we’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out…
As always, let us know your thoughts – were you looking forward to seeing Gremlins 3? Or does a complete reboot of the franchise sound like a good idea?
