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.''

Amblin TV and Exec Producer Joe Johnston Plot Fantasy/Drama ‘Lumen’ Pilot

Sep 25 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

TNT is setting up a handful of new pilots such as Shooter, Titans, and Neil Armstrong miniseries. Now the latest pilot order from the network involves Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and James Frey’s company Full Fathom Five. The show is called Lumen, described as “a fantasy vehicle about a family locked in an alternate world.” In fact, the Lumen pilot sounds like it trades on some pretty familiar fantasy/sci-fi premises, as that “alternate world” is one much like the place described by a p ...

Warner Bros. has released a new The Judge trailer for director David Dobkin’s upcoming drama, and it goes rather heavy on the sentimentality.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  Reviews out of the film’s TIFF premiere weren’t great and this trailer lays on the schmaltz pretty hard, but Downey Jr. still manages to be ...
