Sooner or later every pig gets eaten and every single film is going to get a remake or gritty reboot eventually. Now, it’s Gremlins turn!
Back in December, MovieHole reported that Warner Bros. had renewed the domain for Gremlins3.com which, if nothing else, supports the studios interest in keeping the franchise alive.
This time Vulture reports the studio is negotiating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to reboot the 1984 horror comedy Gremlins, which was originally directed by Joe Dante.
It is not known whether or not it would be a true sequel or, more likely, a reboot when the first report was written. It still remains unclear whether it would be a reboot, prequel or sequel.
This isn’t the first time its happened either as the numerous attempts to reboot the 1984 horror comedy have all fallen through.
Spielberg served as the producer in the original movie alongside Michael Finnelli, while Harry Potter director Chris Columbus penned the script.
Spielberg’s executives were not currently available for comment, which means no guarantee a third Gremlins will happen.
Keep it parked here as we try to dig up some more deets.
