Speilberg set to revive cult flick Gremlins
CULT film franchise Gremlins is to be rebooted by director Stephen Speilberg.
Furry critter Gizmo and his not-so-loveable pals haven’t been seen since 1990’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
But industry sources say studio Warner Bros is in the process of flogging the rights to the series to Speilberg’s Amblin Entertainment – paving the way for more short-arse monster mayhem.
Spielberg’s spokesman was tightlipped on the project, simply saying that the ‘appropriate executives were not available for comment’.
But not everyone is happy with the news.
Joe Dante, the man who directed the original in 1984 and Gremlins 2, had been working hard to get a third instalment rubber-stamped.
But his requests were snubbed because he insisted on using puppets rather than resorting to CGI.
Spielberg will almost certainly favour the creatures being recreated on a PC rather than in a workshop.
