Warner Brothers mulls Gremlins reboot
There’s a lot of love out there for the Amblin movies of the 80’s, and along with Goonies and Back to the Future, one of the biggest and most controversial Amblin films was Gremlins.
Although it’s pretty tame by today’s standards, parents were outraged their kids were seeing these mean, green little creatures being blown up in the microwave and getting chopped up in the blender, but it was a lot of fun to be in a packed theater listening to everyone recoil in disgust when these things happened.
Now there are reports that Gremlins, like almost every single movie ever made, may end up rebooted, although some fans were hoping for another installment instead of starting over from scratch.
As GiantFreakinRobot confirms, negotiations are going on right now with Warner Brothers and Amblin to make another Gremlins flick. Apparently there have been efforts in the past to redo Gremlins, but those deals fell through. This time, however, it sounds like the deal could happen.
