Hollywood isn't going to stop making sequels and reboots, that much is clear. No matter how much we keep telling them that they should make new movies, they insist on revisiting past hits. This time, it's Gremlins.
Gremlins 3 is currently in production by Chris Columbus, creator of the original movie. So it isn't like the new movie will be a big, new reboot, but people did have some concerns.
Columbus is actually writing the script as well, which means that he will have more control than the previous sequel. Gremlins 2: The New Batch didn't involve creator Chris Columbus at all, and he has been very honest in saying that he didn't enjoy it very much.
For the third installment, he has taken over and written the script himself. He let us know what he's been working on.
Columbus said, "I'm really proud of the script. It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we'll see. It's always a budgetary conversation when we're going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we'll see that movie soon."
He also explained what we expect now that CGI is more readily available than it used to be, as well as the potential fate of a fan-favorite character.
