Gremlins 3 is being written right now!
Or so the rumors say after the domain gremlins3.com was renewed by studio giant Warner Bros.
Be that as it may there has been speculation around the different production methods that will surely be used this time around or the age old question of puppetry vs. new cg methods. Some think the Gremlins won’t be captured properly through new age methods.
Some say that the script is being written right now while others claim that the remake might never see the light of day.
Warner Bros or anyone involved with the film have not confirmed any of this rumor so for now we are just going to have to wait and see.
Here is what Joe Dante, the original director had to say:
I’m constantly asked ‘why the hold up on Gremlins 3? And that’s because those films were such products of the technology at the time. The movie was more limited and created by technology. They were puppets. The storylines, then, were based around what we could do with the Gremlins. Now, of course, anything is possible but it becomes a little more difficult to hone it on what your storyline would be. First of all, I won’t be asked. Second of all, I wouldn’t bring back the original cast because it’s been too long – the kids now would be familiar with the title, and familiar with Gizmo and Stripe, but as far as the actual [live-action] characters and story, they don’t know them.. it.
Whether Dante is correct or not many of us will be holding our breaths to see what happens and it is easy to say that Gremlins would be one of those remakes interesting to see.
