Goosebumps scribe Carl Ellsworth to write the Gremlins remake

04.08.2015by: Ryan Miller


The long-talked about remake to the 1984 Joe Dante-directed classic GREMLINS has finally started to pick up steam (again), as Deadline got the early word that Warner Bros has tapped GOOSEBUMPS scribe, Carl Ellsworth, to write the remake. The original film was scripted by Christopher Columbus, who will produce the remake alongside Steven Spielberg, an exec producer on the original. Ellsworth has been behind some genre films like DISTURBIA and the remake of THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT.

In the original film:

A boy inadvertently breaks 3 important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town.

Right now, that’s all she wrote, but I’d imagine we’ll be hearing plenty more from this one sooner than later. Deadline even noted that they had heard that Columbus might direct, but studio insiders say that’s not in the cards at this point. He’d certainly be a fitting choice, that’s for sure, and one that I could get behind.
