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.

See what he had to say below.

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.

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.

Gremlins

It’s official, that Gremlins remake is officially happening. Warner Bros has just tapped Goosebumps writer Carl Ellsworth (The Last House on the Left, Red Dawn) to pen the script for the remake. Chris Columbus, who wrote the original film, will help produce the remake alongside Steven Spielberg, who executive produced the original film.

A few months back there was thought that the film was dead in its tracks. However, the recent hirings indicate that the film is back on. Hit the jump for more.

Gremlins Return In New Snickers Commercial (Video)

Gremlins Snickers Commercial

The pint-sized terrors of 1984’s Gremlins may have made their last big-screen appearance back in 1990 in Gremlins 2: The New Batch, but thanks to candy bar Snickers’ ongoing commercial campaign where celebrities portray hungry personalities, the diminutive delinquents (well, one of them anyway) are back!

In a commercial recently broadcast in the United Kingdom and France, a Mohawk-inspired Gremlin laughs maniacally and tears apart a pillow as two hapless sods try to bring a fridge into an apartment. Only a Snickers bar, which is apt given Gremlins’ predilection towards candy, will satisfy.

You can watch the commercial below.

Seth Grahame-Smith Producing ‘Gremlins’ Remake For Warner Bros.

BAADASSSSS!   |

Back in January we reported that Warner Bros. was in negotiations with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment to remake Joe Dante‘s 1984 holiday horror-comedy classic Gremlins. The negotiations must have worked out because the studio is moving full speed ahead on the remake and they have already tapped a well-known name in the horror genre to take on producing duties.

Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will produce the Gremlins reboot alongside David Katzenberg. Most recently Grahame-Smith adapted Vampire Hunter into a feature film released last year and worked on the script for a Beetlejuice sequel that Tim Burton may still direct. Burton, who produced Vampire Hunter for director Timur Bekmambetov, also collaborated with Grahame-Smith on his Dark Shadows movie that belly flopped at the box office last May. The writer was also retained by Fox to rewrite their long-gestating Fantastic Four reboot that Josh Trank is still on board to direct.

Among the many beloved movies and movie franchises we’ve heard listed off as potential candidates for the remake or reboot treatment, the 1984 horror-comedy classic Gremlins is one of them. Back in 2009 there was even word that a possible Gremlins 3 might be happening. Thankfully, as of this very moment, it’s also one of the lucky few that has yet to go under the knife.

But it’s hard to say how long that will last. According to sources, Warner Brothers is in some form of negotiations with Gremlins producer Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to try and remake the movie.
