Gremlins 3 Movie!!! Its Coming....
New Gremlins 3 Movie – Hollywood Rumors
Hollywood rumors about a new Gremlins movie have been cropping up for some time. But will Mogwai, Gizmo & Gremlins 3 actually be on screens in the near future? I think that all signs point ot yes!
The Gremlins franchise, sitting neatly on a potential trilogy, has been a source of much gossip and speculation. Since the release of The New Batch in 1990, numerous rumors about a new Gremlins movie have surfaced only to be quickly dismissed.
Somewhat recently Hollywood was all a buzz about wrappingup the wildly successful franchise as a trilogy, in July 2009. Joe Dante, director of the original movies, told Empire: "I hear they're going to make another one soon". Even though this was just his own speculation it did cause the many cult Gremlin fans to cultivate and discuss.Although it ended up that fans were to be disappointed when 2009 came and went without further Gremlins in the works.
The good news for fans is that 2010 we have a new glimmer of hope. MarketSaw, a well respected movie blog, announced in late January that Gremlins 3 “is in the early stages with still lots of hurdles to pass, but it is being developed”. So far there is nothing for sure in the works as far as the cast goes and no dates have been set as of right now but we still have hope of the great Gizmo emerging once again!
Return of the Mogwai – Gizmo on Board, Joe Dante Doubtful
The bad news, however, is that Joe Dante will not be signing on as director of the reborn film. In a interview he mentioned that he would not be coming back on, however I don't see this being a huge problem even though everyone would love to see him on board there are so many ways you could go with a script that any director should be happy to have some fun and imagination with it!
Now as far as the other Gremlins stars go like Zach Gallagin and Phoebe Cates there has been no word about them yet but I imagine they will be starting with a fresh new plot and fresh new actors. Lets just pray that they do not replace our lovable animontronic fuzzy mogwai with a new CGI version. I dont want film industry to do to Gizmo what they did to aliens and star wars!
A New Gremlins 3 Movie Release – Will it Actually Happen?
The current Hollywood obsession for remakes (particularly 80s movies) makes Gremlins 3 a distinct possibility. Also it doesn't hurt that many of the original fan base for the movie have kids of their own now and luckily for us the Gizmo hasn't lost any of his contagious adorableness with age. All I know is that when they are ready to make Gremlins 3 I will be one of the first in line!
