When you hear the name Frank Marshall, it may not be the most instantly recognizable name to some. But when you hear that he has hand a hand in producing such recognizable films as Gremlins, Jurassic Park, The Goonies, Back to the Future and Arachnophobia, its hard not to take notice.
So recently the guys over at Crave Online had the opportunity to pick the producers brains, and below we get some answers that many of us have been wondering.
First off, the site asks Marshall if Jurassic Park 4 is dead?
“No, no, it’s in development. It’s got new life. It’s got new life. I can tell you that that is moving forward.”
They then went on to ask about a Gremlins 3…
“You know, we’ve had people call us about it but I think that’s another one that’s kind of now left to be its own. It’s like doing Goonies 2 or E.T. 2. I think it’s another time, it’s another era and they should just rest where they are.”
And finally, will we ever see a Gremlins remake?
“No, I don’t think so. I think by now we have something in our contracts, or at least Amblin does, where it can’t be remade without Steven’s permission.”
I think its pretty clear that Jurassic Park is going ahead, we recently had confirmation that the film would be released two years down the line, but the question is, what route will they take?
And lastly, I’m glad that we won’t be seeing a remake or reboot of Gremlins, but I just know that some point down the line the inevitable will happen. How about they just re-release Gremlins and Gremlins 2 back-to-back in theatres?
