There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, but there are going to be two movies about "The ABCs of Death." A sequel to the creepy anthology is on the way, and filmmakers are promising a leaner and meaner set of horrors. You remember how this works: each director creates a short based on a theme related to a letter of the alphabet, and of course, death. Alex de la Iglesia ("The Last Circus"), Rodney Ascher ("Room 237"), and Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton have already signed on to direct, plus there will be another competition to find the 26th filmmaker. The sequel is planned for a 2014 release, so you have plenty of time to break out your camera and get to work.

So, there’s no way to ignore the fact that this bit of news is going to make a lot of people unhappy. As much as movie nerds like to pretend that they’re the sort of folks who are always looking for new voices and new ideas, like anyone else, we’re really just the sorts of little greed monsters who want to keep getting more of the stuff we like. That’s why film geeks have been calling for a third film in legendary director Joe Dante’s Gremlins series for years. Unfortunately for those who’ve been beating the Dante drum all this time, today the news broke that a Gremlins 3 isn’t likely going to ever happen. There has been a development for the property that’s either going to play like a consolation prize or a slap in the face though, depending on your perspective. Bloody »

Jacques Tourneur's 1957 satanic horror film Night of the Demon was adapted from M. R. James' Casting the Runes. Since then, the ghost-story scribe's tale has been dramatized in multiple forms, and it's about to get another remake. Gremlins and Howling director Joe Dante is teaming up with Simon Pegg for a new twist on James' classic. The Playlist shared a synopsis from the film's website: "When up-and-coming actor Jake Harrington inexplicably hurls himself in front of an oncoming subway train, celebrity gossip blogger Mark Dunning smells a story in Harrington's connection to self-help guru Simon Karswell. What Dunning isn't prepared for is the secret behind Karswell's motivational-speaker success: a command of dark occult...

According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. studio is indeed planning to bring the cutest little mogwai, Gizmo, and his ‘a bit on the wild side’ offsprings, Gremlins, back to the big screen. The search for director is still on, but Seth Grahame-Smith has apparently been brought on as a producer. As long as he doesn’t write the script. There were some reports for a while now that Warner Bros. Pictures was negotiating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to reboot their 1984 horror comedy (Wow. Has it really been that long? Man I’m old!). Apparently, this reboot remake whatever has been in planning for years now, but...

This just in from our friends at Bloody Disgusting: Warner Bros. has apparently abandoned a much-hyped plan to produce a new Gremlins sequel (23 years after Gremlins 2: The New Batch left theaters) in favor of a straight-up remake of the original Steven Spielberg/Joe Dante classic. Yes, you read that right; not even the adorable Gizmo and his demonic spawn are safe from the mighty studio remake machine. According to Warner, Seth Grahame-Smith, best known as the author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and screenwriter on Tim Burton's Dark Shadows (he's also working on the script for a pending Beetlejuice sequel), is lined up to co-produce the remake with David Katzenberg, but it's yet to be confirmed whether he will be writing the script. We're not sure where this might be going, but rest assured there's more news to come, so get ready »

Here’s a story likely to get blood boiling and sharp fangs gnashing. According to an attribution-free story at Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. has decided to switch long-bubbling plans to work up a Gremlins sequel and is instead throwing a reboot into the development swimming pool.Likely to cause further consternation is word that Dark Shadows writer/producer Seth Grahame-Smith and producing partner David Katzenberg – already raiding the back catalogues for a new Beetlejuice film – are on board to oversee this one. There's no word on whether Grahame-Smith also plans to write the script.Of course, it’s very early days, with no writers or directors attached and not a hint as to casting. The Joe Dante original (and its less respected, but still incredibly fun sequel) hold a special place in lots of cinema-goers' hearts. So naturally the idea of a reboot is likely to cause concern. Still, we »
Earlier this year, it was rumored that Warner Bros. was looking to remake the classic 1984 family horror film Gremlins. I never had a good feeling about this remake, as the first Steven Spielberg-produced and Joe Dante-directed film is a classic.
This movie should never be touched, but according to Bloody-Disgusting the Gremlins remake is officially moving forward and the studio has brought in Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dark Shadows) to produce the movie alongside David Katzenberg. Smith also recently completed a draft for the studio’s Beetlejuice remake. I assume he'll write Gremlins as well, but it's not confirmed. I thought Dark Shadows had a terrible script, so I'm not the biggest fan of Smith's screenwriting skills. Just because he's written a couple of silly books obviously doesn't mean he's a good screenwriter. I'm not confident in his abilities.
The original story follows a boy who gets a pet Mogwai. »

There's been talk of a remake of Gremlins for some time now, and it sounds like this project is now ten steps closer to happening. Read on for the latest on the remake, and pray this doesn't turn into a G-rated crapfest!
According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. is officially moving ahead with a remake of Amblin’s 1984 Gremlins instead of the long talked about sequel. The hunt is on for a director, and Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped to produce alongside David Katzenberg. Smith wrote Dark Shadows for Tim Burton and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Fox. He recently completed his draft for the studio’s next Beetlejuice flick.

Warner Bros. is moving forward with a remake to their 1984 classic Gremlins, with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg coming on board to produce. The studio is currently seeking a director, but it is not known who will write the screenplay at this point.
Back in January, we reported that the studio was planning the reboot, with Steven Spielberg possibly returning to executive produce. His involvement with the remake has not been confirmed as of yet. That report said the remake would likely not move ahead without Steven Spielberg coming on board.
Joe Dante directed the original Gremlins, which starred Zach Galligan as a young man who receives a mogwai as a gift from his father, with three explicit rules: do not get them wet, do not feed them after midnight, and do not expose them to bright light. When these rules are broken, the gremlins begin to reproduce and create havoc upon this sleepy town. »
WB has hired Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire, Fantastic Four) and David Katzenberg as producers for a Gremlins remake. Katzenberg is known for his TV work, on The Hard Times Of Rj Berger and the short lived Fox sitcom, Ben And Kate.
No writer or director has been chosen as of now, but it’s clear that the beginnings of a Gremlin reboot is underway, after Frank Marshall announced earlier this year that they were looking into it, if they got Spielberg’s okay. These same two men are working on a Beetlejuice sequel, which is also in the early stages.

Warner Bros. Pictures are reportedly moving ahead with a remake, rather than another sequel, to Amblin's 1984 classic "Gremlins".
Joe Dante helmed the original about a young man (Zach Galligan) who inadvertently breaks the important rules concerning his new pet Mogwai, unleashing a horde of malevolent mischievous monsters on a small town.

It looks there will be some midnight feeding going on over the next few months, as the long-rumored "Gremlins" remake could finally happen.
Warner Bros., which distributed the 1984 original, will apparently proceed with its plans to reboot the horror-comedy classic, this according to horror-movie news site Bloody Disgusting.
Seth Grahame-Smith, king of modern horror comedy, is attached to produce the effort with David Katzenberg. "Gremlins" won't mark the first time the duo has worked together, as they are the creators of the MTV comedy "The Hard Times of Rj Burger." Grahame-Smith made his first foray into film last year after penning the scripts for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" update and the movie version of his novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." He has also found fame with his satirical best-seller "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," which was recently resurrected for a big-screen adaptation with Lily Collins in a starring role. »

When we last reported on the possibility of a Gremlins remake/reboot, the status was basically, "Sure, anything's possible, but don't count on it any time soon." Today, that status remains mostly unchanged except Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg (The Hard Times of Rj Berger) have reportedly signed on to produce. According to Bloody Disgusting, Warner Bros. is "officially moving ahead", but production likely remains at a very early stage since Steven Spielberg, who executive produced the original through his Amblin Entertainment, still has to give the green light. No director or writer is attached, although I assume it's possible that Grahame-Smith could pen the flick. Grahame-Smith recently completed a draft for a sequel to Beetlejuice, so he's experienced with trying to resurrect 80s movies that should best be left alone. »

You might have forgotten or blocked it from your memory, but earlier this year news surfaced that Warner Bros. was in negotiations with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment to reboot "Gremlins." Why? Just because and probably because it's a property that people know and has yet to be scorched and fully exploited for all its franchise potential. Rumors of a "Gremlins 3" had been floating for years and Joe Dante shot them down, but at any rate, it looks like they're just gonna go down the do-over route, though the name they've enlisted to help produce doesn't exactly inspire confidence. The guy behind "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," writer Seth Grahame-Smith will now produce this effort alongside David Katzenberg. Hooray? Grahame-Smith may be a buzzy name around Hollywood, but his CV so far -- 'Vampire Hunter' and "Dark Shadows" -- won't have "Gremlins" fans exactly screaming for excitement. But taking on old »

Is Warner Bros. getting serious about a Gremlins remake? It sure looks like it. Bloody-Disgusting reports that Seth Grahame-Smith ( Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ) and David Katzenberg have been strapped with producing duties, however, no writer or director are attached at this time. The two have a first-look contract with the studio and are also at work on a Beetlejuice sequel. Their two-year deal was signed back in fall of 2011. Earlier this year, talks of a Gremlins remake surfaced when Frank Marshall revealed that a redo could not happen without Steven Spielberg's "okay." If this latest news is true, it means the remake is still in the "early stages" and a lot still needs to happen for it to come to fruition. »

The planned reboot of Gremlins looks like it's moved one step closer...
As we've mentioned on more than one occasion at Den Of Geek, director Joe Dante pulled a blinder with Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Hired back by Warner Bros, when the studio was struggling to get the sequel off the ground, Dante was given relatively free reign, and happily used it. He made, to paraphrase him, a sequel that would all but wipe out the chances of a Gremlins 3.
It's been an effective plan too, but the reboot machine has been circling Gremlins for some time now. And it may just have got its prey.
Bloody Disgusting is now reporting that Seth Grahame-Smith, who penned last year's Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is the man who has been hired. Grahame-Smith also wrote the likes of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies »
A while ago we reported that Warner Bros. Pictures was negotiating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to reboot their 1984 horror comedy, Gremlins. Apparently there have been numerous attempts to get the wheels in motion on this over the years but things always fell through, however, this time it seems to be on track with Dark Shadows/Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter writer Seth Grahame-Smith being tapped to produce alongside David Katzenberg. Gremlins was one of my favorite movies as a child and I still love the Hell out of it despite it dating a little around the edges. A less successful (and quite bizarre) sequel followed, and there was always talk of a third movie but nothing ever materialized. There's no doubt that Gizmo is one of the most adorable creatures to ever grace the screen, so I'm not altogether against another movie as long as it stays true to the original. »
A remake of Gremlins has been on the cards for some time. It’s going to happen, no matter how much your inner child repulses at the thought. Now, Bloody Disgusting reports that genre reboot maestro Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped by Warner Bros to produce and he will team up with producer David Katzenberg for the kiddy-monster flick.
Whether this is speculation or not remains to be seen, as Warner Bros. have yet to release an official statement. Should it go ahead with the assembly of talent rumoured, it will mark a reunion for the two producers. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Grahame-Smith wrote and Katzenberg is producing the currently in-development Beetlejuice sequel.
No director for the project has been announced, but could original helmer Joe Dante take the job? He mentioned back in 2010 that he’s no interest in a Gremlins 3 but acknowledged that a reboot was inevitable at some point. »
