The Gremlins Remake Begins to Show Signs of Life

Chris Savage

Gremlins PosterBare with me here as we don’t really have an awful lot to go on at this time, but we can reveal, thanks to Ain’t it Cool News, that the remake of Joe Dante’s Gremlins is moving quickly at Warner Bros.

No other information is available at present, but as soon as we hear more, you guys will be the first to know.

So, with the remake/reboot showing signs of life, who would you like to see helm this one?

I will say this. If they use CGI Gremlins, I will personally riot! Sure, CGI has its place, sometimes it can enhance practical effects, but having a CGI Gremlin for me, personally, is a no.

Saying that, I’m intrigued for what the future holds for this one.

        Lazy man. Before studios think about a remake, they want to be thinking about a Gremlins 3-D. Gremlins in my opinion would make a great 3-D film and I’m not even a fan of the genre either. It’s a sorry state of affairs.

        Hollywood needs to stop with the remakes of classic movies that there’s nothing wrong with.

        Actually a Gremlins movie would be a welcome thing. If they use the genre and create a new film of it. Not a remake or a prequel, but something new. No gizmo, no stripe, but a whole new movie about a kid that gets a Mogwai. Heck even a “bad Mogwai” stowed away in an PS4 from ebay, and the kid has a lot to learn quickly about his new “Frenemy”. Anything but a remake/reboot will do!

        I thought it was going
        to be a “SEQUEL”!!!

        Why the fuck would they do that? Are there no new ideas out there? I guess filmakers now are braindead idiots with no original creativity.

        They’re gonna over-do-it with too much frakin CGI.

        It might be okay… After all I always wanted another sequel in the franchise but a remake will have to do I suppose. It also wont be nor feel right if it’s completely done in CG. Even though you it will be. I miss the old days with practical effects.

        No amount of manipulative speech or amount of convincing can ever make it right to flat out disregard a film that is a rock solid classic film and make it again, as though it had no original value. Some may come up with clever ways to appeal this, but let it be said ahead of time – There needs to be a point where it stops.

        Even if the PRODUCER or original film makers themselves think it’s ‘cool’, there’s a certain amount of ‘purity’ that is lost.

        What’s the point?
        Are there no other ways to create a great film?
        How about creating a brand new classic? Something that stands the test of time ALONE and untouched?

        Face it – Nothing you can say or do will ultimately make it ‘okay’ for them to remake Gremlins, Short Circuit, the Dark Crystal, Labrynth, and the list goes on and on.
        Some things should be ALLOWED to stand the test of time on their own.

          Agreed JCB, very well put. Remaking The Thing (Carpenter’s) is a good example of diluting a classic name.

        I don’t care what you say. I can’t wait for this movie.
