Warner Bros. Planning Gremlins Reboot. Again

Though it’s been rumoured numerous times before, the rather dependable Vulture are again reporting that Warner Bros. have been speaking to Amblin about maybe getting a Gremlins reboot off the ground.

And I expect that this would be a project we can legitimately call a reboot rather than a remake. They’ll keep the creatures and the “rules,” I’m sure, but they’ll more than likely change everything else. You don’t need a Billy Peltzer to sell Gremlins.

I’m very fond of the original film, and while I think the second is possibly the better, braver, and certainly crazier episode, it’s actually the original that I go back to the most – maybe because I can’t let Christmas go past without it.

There would seem to be little to no chance that Joe Dante would be involved in the do-over. Heck, it seems unlikely that they’d even get back Gizmo to play Gizmo and would just replace him with CG or something.

Still, the basic premise of Gremlins is a rich one and the right filmmakers could turn in something special – obviously it happend twice before, so I don’t know why it couldn’t again. I only hope Warner Bros. don’t think they’d be currying fan boy favour by getting Chris Columbus involved…
