Vulture is reporting that Joe Dante’s classic Gremlins is inching closer into remake territory. Here’s the scoop:

“Our sources tell us that, in keeping with Hollywood’s mandated pop culture recycling program, Warner Bros. Pictures is negotiating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to reboot their 1984 horror comedy, Gremlins.

We’re also told negotiations of this sort have happened several times over the years, but making Spielberg’s deal always proved too daunting a financial prospect and his involvement might simply be a requirement for making the film at all, so don’t hold your breath. Having said all of that, our sources tell us that it might just actually come off this time.”

No executives were available for comment, and it’s highly unlikely Joe Dante would be involved with this reboot/rehash/remake.

Does anyone who is actually a fan of the original want to see this happen? »
