GREMLINS Reboot In The Works Again
Vulture reports that Warner Bros. is talking with Amblin Entertainment to develop a reboot of the 80's classic Gremlins. While similar talks have happened over the years it's possible it could be more concrete than previously. It's possible but not confirmed that Steven Spielberg could end up producing the project. A little piece of me is upset that this reboot could end up chucking out the classic puppets for cheap-looking CGI instead. Fingers-crossed that the Henson Company ends up getting involved.
Here's hoping if this has to happen that the studio ends up hiring some truly funny leads like Charlie Day (Sunny In Philly, Horrible Bosses, Pacific Rim) and Alison Brie (Community, Five-Year Engagement, Mad Men).
