Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are lined up to produce a Gremlins remake for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros.
Carl Ellsworth (Red Eye, Disturbia) has been hired to write the third Gremlins film. Both Chris Columbus, who wrote the original 1984 film, and Steven Spielberg, who served as an executive producer, are said to be involved.
Zack Galligan, who played Billy Peltzer in both the 1984 original and the sequel in 1990, said. “It’s not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form. Chris Columbus has come out and said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade. So the only thing they will be, and apparently are going to be doing, is something along the lines of like Jurassic World, where it will be 30 years later.”
