Warner Brothers moving forward with Gremlins reboot; Seth Grahame-Smith to produce

May. 13, 2013by: Kevin Woods

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 thirdGREMLINS picture for Warner Brothers, alongside David Katzenberg, moving ahead with a remake of Amblins 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 dont think so. I think by now we have something in our contracts, or at least Amblin does, where it cant be remade without Steven [Spielberg]s 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

hm, don't know

I love Gremlins, the second one was fun but didn't come near the Original....this could work if they stick to the tone of the first one, but with the overuse of CGI it probably will suck balls....for our generation, i think the kids who haven't seen the Original will probably love it.

I just wish Hollywood would stop remaking classics and come up with good, new ideas....and with good i don't mean Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter wich was just awful. bring back Steven Spielberg and Joe Dante

Interesting....

The original first draft script disappeared off of the net a few weeks ago. If the plan is to reboot using the original horror screenplay, i'm in.
Paraphrased:
"Excuse me Miss? Do you know or have heard of the word "mogwai ?
"Yes. Yes I have. It means "Devil"

Don't Hurt Gizmo!

What the F--ck Hollywood!!? Enough with allowing movie makers to remake almost every single classic..there is nothing wrong with Gremlins...its a classic on its own....now you want to ruin that with a remake...of course IF this movie gets the official green light...it will suck...no question, you cant create the same magic...its interesting how Hollwood wont make a long awaited sequel to movies anymore., but they are willing to ruin movie franchises by making stupid, non-needed remakes ..agghh

I'm confused. The article makes it sound like there are two films. A third Gremlins and a reboot. I would rather a third film than a reboot, but if it's done well then I'm for it.

IF they treat the source material with respect then who knows we could see a great movie. Gremlins is not like rebooting Fright Night. Its an all around 80s classic. Sticking to practical effects or CG similar to Rise of the Planet of the Apes... Paul... hell even Ted would be their best bet in succeeding in this case.

I just know they're going to use CG for the Gremlins. The movie's going to be crap.

These money hungry whores in Hollywood will get to the point where there is nothing left to reboot. Stop fucking with all of the classics and come up with your own.

NO!!!!

Bad idea. Bad, bad, bad. I REALLY hope Spielberg doesn't sign off on this.

Gremlins 2 was brilliant, by the way.

Could it be worse than gremlins 2 ?

I honestly don`t think it can be any worse than gremlins 2 was as long as they make liberal use of animatronics and practical effects and use cgi sparingly it should be okay

At least gremlins 2 knew it couldn't top the original so it decided to spoof it. Unlike this, this has "lets make some money and try and outdo a classic" written all over it.

Ehhhhhhhh

Really got a bad feeling about this.

SIde note, wonder if they'll get Howie Mandel to be Gizmo's voice again?

Get the original cast. Get Rob Bottin. Make puppets. Ban CGI. Make Gremlins 3.
^Do THAT instead.
And fire Seth Grahame-Smith. Dark Shadows was so bad it hurt.

I'm okay as long as the remake has the original's tongue-in-cheek humor and mix comedy and horror well.
