There is no reason given for why Gremlins 3 would be bypassing a seemingly lucrative theatrical release, but original director Joe Dante and producer Michael Finnell won't be a part of it.

Apparently, Warner Bros. new direct to DVD unit will be responsible for this third installment in the franchise.

According to Joe Dante, "Gremlins was governed by the technology that produced it. Now it would be CGI, and you could do anything. There may be places for the jokes to go [The White House?]. But you've got a company who owns the rights to a movie that they don't quite understand. I think it's going to be difficult for them to make another one".
