Here's some news to make you choke on your coffee this morning. According to Bloody Disgusting, DARK SHADOWS/ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER writer Seth Grahame-Smith will be producing a third†GREMLINS picture for Warner Brothers, alongside David Katzenberg, moving ahead with a remake of Amblinís 1984 GREMLINS instead of the long gestured sequel.
There is no word on who will be writing and directing this remake, but if this bit of hellish news holds true then I wouldn't be surprised if Grahame-Smith pulls double-duty and takes a crack at writing the screenplay as well as producing.
In an interview with Crave last year, producer Frank Marshall spoke out about a possible GREMLINS reboot, stating...
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."
No word on whether or not Spielberg has signed off on anything as of yet.
We'll keep you updated on news regarding a GREMLINS reboot as we hear it.
Even Gizmo thinks a GREMLINS reboot is a bad idea
