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

2-gremlins

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.

    Gremlins Remake ? why not…

    • weresmurf

      It could work. Personally I’d love to see CGI enhanced puppets but you know they’ll just 100 percent CGI it.

    • kevkraft

      Why? is my question

    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.

    Get ready for CGI infested pile of shit

  • ThunderDragoon

    NO CGI!

  • divisionbell

    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…

  • Darkness69

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

  • Darkness69

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

  • randomguysteve

    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.

  • Aaron Emery

    Even if the CGI is absolutely terrible, it could still be worse.

    Jesus, fuckin, god don’t remake Gremlins, Hollywood.

  • Voorhees83

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

  • DarrellSimpson

    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.

  • media_hobbit

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

  • Leolion69247

    Im sure there are coked up movie producers in Hollywood that are gonna make remakes of everything I bet there Will be a Last starfighter Remake Enemy Mine I bet candyman will get one too and chucky will get rebooted I bet too

  • kevkraft

    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?
