Gremlins movie to be rebooted

Jan 17 2013, 6:52am CST | by

Steven Spielberg's 'Gremlins' movie could be rebooted, according to reports.

Vulture.com claims Warner Bros. is in contact with the director's Amblin Entertainment company to broker a deal that would allow a remake of the horror comedy.

His demands have always proved a stumbling block for the reboot, as it was ''too daunting a financial prospect,'' but sources suggest Spielberg - who was executive producer for the original in 1984 - could sign over the rights.

A spokesman for the director neither confirmed nor denied the rumours when asked, cryptically claiming the ''appropriate executives were not available for comment.''

'Gremlins' - which starred Phoebe Cates, Zach Gilligan and Hoyt Axton - was directed by Joe Dante, who has in the past played down the idea of a new film.

Joe previously said: ''Those films were such products of the technology at the time.

''The movie was more limited and created by technology. They were puppets.

''The storylines, then, were based around what we could do with the Gremlins.

''Now, of course, anything is possible but it becomes a little more difficult to hone it on what your storyline would be.''

Exclusive Clip from TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION’s Blu-ray/Digital Release Takes a Peek into the Mind, Method, and Madness of Michael Bay

Sep 16 2014 10:24am CDT | Source: Collider

The closest most people get to understanding the singular vision and unique method of Michael Bay's filmmaking is to simply watch his finished products.  Unfortunately, so much is lost in translation between the empty frame at the beginning of production and the overloaded insanity Bay packs into each and every scene by the movie's end.  While I was lucky enough to see Bay's process in action while on set of his recent blockbuster Transformers: Age of Extinction, n ...
