The reboot has been talked about many times throughout the years, but the film is not likely to gain traction unless Steven Spielberg is involved. The studio is hoping that the acclaimed director will come aboard the project as a producer, a position which he held on the original film, as well as its sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
This reboot has been a hot topic for fans, none of whom want the franchise brought back to life, especially if it involves CGI. The original film utilized animatronic puppets in bringing the Mogwai and the Gremlins to life. It will be interesting to see how the project comes together, if at all.
Joe Dante directed the original, as well as the sequel. The film is about a young man who receives a strange creature called a mogwai as a pet, which came with three rules: Never let them near bright light, never feed them after midnight, and never let them near water. If these rules were broken, the Mogwai would spawn more creatures who transform into small, destructive, evil monsters.
It is not clear if the director will return for a reboot, or even a possible sequel that would pick up with Gizmo and his owner Billy years after their last encounter. Nothing has been confirmed, so check back to find out if the film will become a reality.
