GREMLINS Reboot May Kind of Sort of May Be Possibly Happening One Day

     January 16, 2013

Eventually, all successful franchises will probably get a reboot.  It’s simply a matter of when.  The notion of rebooting Gremlins has been kicked around for a while, and Vulture is reporting that Warner Bros. is in talks with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entetainment to reboot the 1984 horror comedy.  Of course, there are tons of caveats: these negotiations have been on and off for years, Spielberg wants too much money, and his creative input would be required.  Nevertheless, Vulture’s sources say “it might just actually come off this time.”  The website didn’t specify why this time would be any different, and how anything has substantially changed.

So there you have it: a Gremlins reboot could possibly happen at some point in the future.  Thankfully, this means we currently don’t have to fret at the prospect of some hacky director coming along to create CGI gremlins that lack the fun and chaotic energy director Joe Dante brought to the original films.
