“Gremlins” remake finds a producer

May 14, 2013

Warner Bros. Pictures is negotiating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to reboot the 1984 horror comedy, GREMLINS. Apparently there have been numerous attempts to get the wheels in motion on this over the years, but things always fell through. However, this time it seems to be on track with Dark Shadows/Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter writer Seth Grahame-Smith being tapped to produce alongside David Katzenberg.

I swear that every other news story is related to another classic film being remade. GREMLINS is a classic 80’s horror comedy and I love it.  Does it really need to be remade? No, because the only updating they’d really be doing is replacing the effective puppets with little computer generated monsters.  I’d be fine with a sequel or maybe another movie about Gremlins that doesn’t involve Billy or Gizmo, but when is it enough?  If the current fad continues, then every movie that anyone has ever cared about will have been remade for a quick buck at the end of this decade.
