Chris Columbus Talks Gremlins 3 Script

Technically, Gremlins 3 isn’t happening for sure just yet. But it is something that’s been in development for a while now. At least some form of it, anyway, whether that be a new sequel or a remake.

The script is written by original screenwriter Chris Columbus, who also penned The Goonies and would go on to direct Adventures in Babysitting, Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. He recently talked about the sequel, its “twisted and dark” tone, and whether it will use CGI or practical effects.

Gremlins

Amidst all of these reboots and remakes and sequels, it is pretty surprising that we’ve not yet seen Gremlins 3 find life. We’ve heard about a new movie in the franchise in the past—sometimes as a remake, sometimes as a sequel—but nothing has ever come of it.

Thankfully Zach Galligan, who starred in the first two Gremlins movies, is keeping us updated on where things stand. Continue below to read what he had to say.

Gremlins header

The long-developing third Gremlins film was rumored to be a reboot, and as you can imagine, this didn’t sit well with any of the fans of the franchise. Despite these rumors, actor Zach Galligan says that it won’t be a reboot or a remake, but an actual sequel. And you might have Chris Columbus for keeping the franchise close to his chest and the huge success of Jurassic World to thank for that.

More on the story below.

The Goonies 30

Back in 1985, Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg, and Chris Columbus created a tale of a bunch of outcast kids searching for buried pirate treasure. It doesn’t necessarily sound like a classic.
