Gremlins set for reboot?

January 17th, 2013 by Marc Comments

There are a few movies that are, well, sacred. We all have movies we love, but there’s a small few that almost everyone holds in high regard: Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars A New Hope. These movies make us shudder at the very thought of a remake/reboot. Well, prepare to shudder…

Details are sketchy right now, but rumour is that Warner Brothers are negotiating with Steven Spielberg to make a reboot happen. Apparently it won’t happen unless he allows it…

Do we want a CGI Gremlins movie? Does it need to be remade? Gremlins may be flawed but it still holds up pretty well and is funny, exciting and scary in all the right places.

Please Steven. Don’t let this happen…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
