Exclusive: 'Gremlins' Reboot Has Seth Grahame-Smith Snacking After Midnight!

Here’s a late snack after midnight that will turn you into an angry little creature.

Bloody Disgusting has exclusively learned that Warner Bros. is officially moving ahead with a remake of Amblin’s 1984 Gremlins, instead of the long gestured sequel.

While a hunt is on for a director, Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped to produce alongside David Katzenberg. Smith wrote Dark Shadows for Tim Burton, and recently completed his draft for the studio’s next Beetlejuice. He also penned Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Fox.

The original holiday classic was directed by Joe Dante and followed a boy, played by Zach Galligan, who inadvertently breaks 3 important rules concerning his new pet Mogwai and unleashes a horde of malevolent mischievous monsters on a small town.

No word if Smith will also write this new take on the Steven Spielberg-produced Gremlins.

    Please God, don’t let them CGI the gremlins. I’m getting to the point where I fucking hate GGI in anything other than huge movies like Star Trek or Iron Man, movies that can afford the best visual fx, but i don’t want cg gremlins. To me, it would be like having cg predators in a Predator movie or like how they’re doing cg turtles for the new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. Not sure how it’s gonna look, but i wish people would take notes from the new Evil Dead and do almost everything practically if possible.

    Yay another needless cgi filled piece of shit remake.
    If you’re going to remake a film, please stick to bad films that actually could use a remake or don’t do them at all…

    No to the remake and NO to CGI – and I’m sure they’re overuse it as always!

    Just go ahead and make it a movie with a bunch of mini Jar-Jars, it’ll have the same effect anyways. Next I’ll be reading that they are going to remake The Never Ending Story or The Dark Crystal in 3-D CGI BS. Leave our 80′s movies alone please.

    For crying out loud, no more remakes! Why not complete the trilogy with the long awaited Gremlins 3.

    Ruining classics. Thats all studios seem to do nowdays. This will be no different. But will make them a lot of money because it will be gremlins. Its a classic and shouldn’t be remade.

    Please use puppets. Hollywood has ruined everything by spilling CGI on every damn movie these days, unless the movie needs it!

    Is there no imagination left in Hollywood other than to remake things? And why can crappy films find money while my own script gems languish in unfulfilled limbo on disk?

    Anyone out there know of anyone with money who’d be interested in backing an excellent and original project?
