Fans of Gremlins are in luck because there’s been some movement on the new movie front.
A Gremlins animated series has been in the works for a while now, but fans would really like to see a new movie since there hasn’t been one since 1989. The last we heard Gremlins creator Chris Columbus had written a script and was anxious to get a new movie off the ground.
“I would love to do it,” Columbus said to Collider. “I wrote a script, so there is an existing script. We’re working out some rights issues right now, so we’re just trying to figure out when the best time to make that film would be. I would still do it the same way — I would do it as tangible puppets, not CGI. Maybe having — you know we had one stop-motion scene in the first Gremlins, but I don’t think I’d use much CGI in Gremlins 3.”
When asked about the sequel more recently, Columbus said it was a work in progress.
“I can only say we’re working on it. We’re working toward that goal, but we haven’t gotten there yet,” Columbus said.
