Over the past few years there’s been a lot of talk about Gremlins 3, and now it seems the project may finally be moving forward as original screenwriter Chris Columbus has revealed to SlashFilm that he’s completed a screenplay for a third instalment in the comedy-horror series.
“I’m really proud of the script,” said Columbus. “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.”
Columbus also went on to reveal that the film will retain a heavy emphasis on practical effects: “Oh, without a doubt, minimal CGI. CGI will enable us »

Gremlins is a fine representation of a classic 80s movie, however the sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch was nowhere near the quality or fun of the original. It is almost like the producers somehow managed to feed the first film after midnight, and just like with a mogwai, things got out of control. While speaking with SlashFilm about a film he produced, Patti Cake$, the writer who penned the original script, Chris Columbus, mentioned that talks for a third Gremlins movie are heating up, and that he has a finished script.

Amongst the list of projects missing presumed dead was a revival of the Gremlins film series. Chris Columbus, who penned the original film, had been working on a screenplay for a new movie, but nothing had been heard of it for some time. It had been assumed that its moment had passed.
“I’m really proud of the script”, Columbus said. “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. »
It has been nearly three decades since Gremlins 2: The New Batch was released and yet, we still haven't had another entry in the franchise. But it hasn't been for a lack of trying. Director Chris Columbus, who is executive producing Gremlins 3 and writing the sequel, did not particularly enjoy the second movie. Columbus, who created the original Gremlins characters and story, as directed by Joe Dante, has he's been working on reboot for a while now. He's now confirmed that he's finished the script. According to him, it is pretty dark and even addresses the possibility of killing off the lovable Mogwai Gizmo.
Chris Columbus recently spoke with Slash Film while promoting the festival hit Patti Cakes, which he produced. He was asked about Gremlins 3 and where that currently stands. He says that the script is done, but as usual with these things, it keeps coming down to budgetary conversations. »
Back in 2016, Gremlins star Zach Galligan revealed that Chris Columbus – the writer of that original 1984 movie – was hard at work on a script for Gremlins 3. This was somewhat surprising, given that Columbus is known to have been unhappy with the direction in which 1990’s Gremlins 2 took his foundational ideas. It was exciting for the same reason, though – if anyone could bring the Gremlins property back on track, it’s the man who invented it in the first place, right?
For those unfamiliar, Gremlins is the popular horror-comedy, written by Columbus and directed by Joe Dante. It follows the adventures of Billy Peltzer (Galligan), as he gets to grips with a strange and mysterious pet Mogwai named Gizmo that his father acquires for him from an antique store in Chinatown. Billy is told, in no uncertain terms, that there are three rules when it comes to owning a Mogwai: »

After Gremlins 2 turned the original film on its head – with Leonard Maltin reviewing Gremlins 1 in the movie and Gremlins overtaking the projection booth until Hulk Hogan stops them – it seemed to be the last word on the franchise. Decades later, talk of Gremlins 3 is finally real and original screenwriter Chris […]

When Lucasfilm announced plans for a standalone Han Solo prequel, there didn't seem to be an actor in Hollywood who didn't want a crack at playing the younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. Producer Kathleen Kennedy and the film's original directing team looked at a slew of actors between the ages of 17 and 34. At one point, the short list reportedly included Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Raynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen, and Blake Jenner, before the role was ultimately given to Alden Aron-Reich. But the search for the original Han Solo was just as wide searching, and possibly a little more difficult to nail down, with quit a few Hollywood icons targeted for the role.
Here's a sentence you probably never thought you would read: Madballs will be included in a movie directed by Steven Spielberg. That's right, Madballs will make their big screen debut in Ready Player One. The 80s will be coming back in a major way when the movie hits theaters early next year. The nostalgic geek fest of a trailer premiered at San Diego Comic-Con and packed a ton of 80s pop culture references in just over 2 minutes of video. And now the Madballs will be added to the ever-growing list of pop culture references.
The news comes courtesy of the Madballs Facebook page. The page reposted the Ready Player One trailer with a caption that reads: "Dude! We're so Ready! We even make a grossed-out appearance (in the movie)!" It isn't clear if we're going to see a giant Madball wreaking havoc in the movie or if it will be »
