Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg May Produce GREMLINS Remake

     May 13, 2013

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.
