You see the folks over at Crave Online had a chance to chat it up with producer Frank Marshall regarding his newest action romp THE BOURNE LEGACY. Now that's all fine and dandy but what we want to hear about is GREMLINS and JURASSIC PARK! Let's skip ahead to the good bits.
In regards to GREMLINS 3: "You know, weíve had people call us about it but I think thatís another one thatís kind of now left to be its own. Itís like doing Goonies 2 or E.T. 2. I think itís another time, itís another era and they should just rest where they are."
As for a GREMLINS reboot: "No, I donít think so. I think by now we have something in our contracts, or at least Amblin does, where it canít be remade without Steven [Spielberg]ís permission."
And lastly JURASSIC PARK IV and that pesky 'weaponized dinosaurs' rumor: "No, no, itís in development. Itís got new life. Itís got new life. I can tell you that that is moving forward." ... "No, no, thatís another rumor. Thatís not it."
So there you have it folks! JURASSIC PARK IV is indeed happening sans weaponized dinos, GREMLINS 3 is always a possibility and a GREMLINS reboot seems dead in the water. Sounds good to me!
For the whole interview, where Marshall also touches on THE TALISMAN and a new INDIANA JONES flick among lots others, head right over HERE.
