Warner Bros. is moving forward with a remake to their 1984 classic Gremlins, with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg coming on board to produce. The studio is currently seeking a director, but it is not known who will write the screenplay at this point.
Back in January, we reported that the studio was planning the reboot, with Steven Spielberg possibly returning to executive produce. His involvement with the remake has not been confirmed as of yet. That report said the remake would likely not move ahead without Steven Spielberg coming on board.
Joe Dante directed the original Gremlins, which starred Zach Galligan as a young man who receives a mogwai as a gift from his father, with three explicit rules: do not get them wet, do not feed them after midnight, and do not expose them to bright light. When these rules are broken, the gremlins begin to reproduce and create havoc upon this sleepy town.
Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are currently writing Beetlejuice 2 for Warner Bros. They both created the short-lived MTV series The Hard Times of RJ Berger. Seth Grahame-Smith also wrote the novel and screenplay adaptation for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the screenplay for Dark Shadows, and he has an adaptation of his novel Pride, Prejudice and Zombies in development at Lionsgate.
