Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg May Produce GREMLINS Remake

by     Posted 1 year, 76 days ago

When we last reported on the possibility of a Gremlins remake/reboot, the status was basically, “Sure, anything’s possible, but don’t count on it any time soon.”  Today, that status remains mostly unchanged except Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg (The Hard Times of RJ Berger) have reportedly signed on to produce.  According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. is “officially moving ahead”, but production likely remains at a very early stage since Steven Spielberg, who executive produced the original through his Amblin Entertainment, still has to give the green light.

No director or writer is attached, although I assume it’s possible that Grahame-Smith could pen the flick.  Grahame-Smith recently completed a draft for a sequel to Beetlejuice, so he’s experienced with trying to resurrect 80s movies that should best be left alone.

    No way, my amigo and I were just watching Gremlins 2 the other day and I was wondering why nobody has wanted to bring back the property with new technical tricks. I hope they try to keep the lighthearted clash with terror instead of rebooting as a strictly horror property (but I think Hollywood is getting smarter). I love the Gremlins and have my finger crossed that this one will be awesome, it would be awesome to be on that production team.

    Remember in the first Gremlins film, this crazy old guy tells the story about how during WWII, the Gremlins were a German weapon to sabotage Allied planes?

    THAT’S what I would like to see a movie about. Except of course, the Germans wouldn’t be able to control the Gremlins, and they would quickly turn against them. With lots of mayhem ensuing. While in the meantime ‘subtly’ spoofing every classic war movie known to man, of course.

    Imagine Gremlins re-enacting D-Day. Imagine a Gremlin doing Willem Dafoe’s death scene from Platoon (not WWII, I know, doesn’t matter).
    Imagine a Gremlin punching Hitler in the f***ing face!

    Yes… that’s the Gremlins movie I would like to see. And I would call it… hmmm Hell I’d call it:

    “GREMLINS VS. NAZIS”

    (Warner Bros, call me!)
