Before purchasing tickets, however, consider that rumors of another "Gremlins" film have been around for years. In 2004, "Gremlins" director Joe Dante said there was talk of a third "Gremlins" film, but that it probably wouldn't happen.
"I somehow doubt it," Dante told Empire. "The technology that drove the first two pictures is so dated now that any new 'Gremlins' movie would have to be CGI, but I think the prosaicness of the puppetry and all that stuff we had in the first two movies really defined those pictures. Anybody who did a new Gremlins movie would have to make it as different from those two pictures as they possibly could."
In 2009, Dante suggested to Empire that a remake of "Gremlins" could be possible, even with the new CGI technology.
