Gremlins was comedy genius, and a truly original idea. Now with other 80s films coming out of retirement like Ghost Busters, it seems that there is a rumour that with the recent return of director Joe Dante (who originally directed Gremlins) that he may be tapped for a new Gremins movie.
And of course, they would make it in 3d!
Market Saw is spreading the rumour:
I have very good information from a top source that tells me another GREMLINS movie is coming to the silver screens and it will be in stereoscopic 3D! It is in the early stages with still lots of hurdles to pass, but it is being developed. This is not a 3D conversion of the original to be clear.
There are somethings that only work if you are in the 80s. And when looking back on some of these films, they worked BECAUSE it was the 80s. We were a very forgiving sort then, and had a real penchant for the campy silliness.
Can they make a Gremlins 3? Or will it be a remake?
Would it have the same charm? Or will it give our kids nightmares now?
