Gremlins remake release date hasn’t been set yet, but the film is definitely in the works with original scribe Chris Columbus on board to produce the project in addition to the planned Goonies 2 movie.
According to Slashfilm , the new Gremlins movie will be based 30 years following the original film as a “sequel-style reboot” and not a remake.
The news came from The Tracking Board , however there has been no official announcement for both films as of the moment thus, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
Columbus is said to be joining Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg – producers of Beetlejuice sequel – in producing the project that is reportedly on the fast track as Warner Bros.
is eager to make the Gremlins remake for years.
The new film would be based on the original film following the story of a boy with a very unusual pet that turned out to be monstrous creatures.
The original movie had a sequel on 1990 titled Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
While, Steven Spielberg is also reported to executive produce the remake no further details are yet to be announced.
Original star Zach Galligan allegedly wants to be involved in the project as well.
However original Gremlins movie director Joe Dante will not be involved in the remake according to reports.
Columbus did mention in one of his interviews years back that “it would be fun to go back and revisit.” However, he’s quite pessimistic about the Gremlims remake release date and production saying: “I think it’s impossible to recreate in a CGI environment.
I think it will inevitably lose some of its charm.
Those are edgy Muppets in a sense and you don’t want to lose that sense of anarchy that those gremlins had, because behind the scenes are 25 puppeteers making them to come to life,” says Columbus.
However he did say the same about the on going Goonies sequel, “But as Steven said, ‘How can you really be going underground finding another gigantic pirate ship filled with treasure? What can be the next adventure?'” With all the successful remakes and reboots in the movie scene, it’s not impossible for Columbus and Warner Bros.
to pursue with Gremlins remake/sequel.
