I'm reading a fair bit about a new Gremlins film being made. These rumours pop up every now and again. I've written about them before, and I'm sure I'll write about them again.
What I am finding it difficult to determine is whether the movie will be a reboot or a segue from the two movies that came out in the 1980s and early 1990s.
There was an article on the Mirror website claiming that Zach Galligan - who played the protagonist in the two movies - had noted the Chris Columbus has been dead set against the idea of a remake.
However, the IMDB page for the movie has it listed as 'Gremlins' and not 'Gremlins 3'. The little write-up mentions that it's 'a remake of the 1984 film',
This does not fill me with confidence.
I'd much rather revisit the old characters like Billy and Gizmo over twenty-five years since I last saw them.
The guy who played Murray Futterman is still alive and making movies, so I'd be down with seeing what happened to him after everything he went through in the first, and second, films.
Oh... and the big thing I would like is for this film to be is to have the puppets similar to the original movies. None of this overdone CGI nonsense.
I'm not asking for too much, am I?
