Gremlins Remake Put on the Fast Track at Warner Bros.
Following our report yesterday that The Goonies 2 is moving forward at Warner Bros., Ain't It Cool News reports that a remake of Gremlins has also been put on the fast track to production at the studio.
We reported in May that the Gremlins remake will be produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg, although it isn't known if the studio has found a writer or a director at this time. However, the remake likely won't materialize without the involvement of Steven Spielberg, who served as executive producer on the original Gremlins.
Gremlins starred Zach Galligan as a young man who receives a gremlin as a gift from his father, which comes with three stringent rules: don't get them wet, don't feed them after midnight and don't expose them to sunlight. When these rules are broken, the gremlins replicate at an astounding rate and wreak havoc upon this small town. Hoyt Axton, Corey Feldman and Harry Carey Jr. co-starred in the original, which spawned the 1990 sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
