Gremlins 3 Coming Soon?

Goon

Everyone for a very long time has been waiting for a Gremlins 3. Even not long ago we had a disscussion on the message boards about what could be done with a new Gremlins movie. Today Latino Review talked to the man behind the first two Gremlins movies Joe Dante and here is what he had to say.

“Gremlins 3”! Well, I’m sure there will be one. I know I won’t have anything to do with it. They won’t ask me. But the goal with “Gremlins 2” was to make sure there wouldn’t be a “Gremlins 3”. If there is a “Gremlins 3” they’re welcome to it. I think what’s holding it up is that they can’t conceive of what to do because the first movies were defined by the technology, it was what the puppets could do and do well and not do and that’s what the movies became. Now you could do anything with CGI so the field is so open that nobody could focus on what exactly it should be. I can’t say I’m looking forward to seeing it.

Bummer. But it does sound like the studio is interested so it looks like we may get another film after all. The only problem with that is that it will most likely be handled by people who don't care about the franchise and which way it is headed.
