A few months back a rumor floated around that Warner Bros. was looking into the possibility of a Gremlins reboot, and if I remember correctly we all laughed at them and threw rocks at them till they stopped such idiocy. Well, grab handful of your finest movie exec seeking pocket gravel because it sounds like they still want to reboot the 80’s classic.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that a source close to the project (I assume that’s studio code for ‘coke dealer‘) says that WB has tapped Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to produce the remake. Seth Grahame-Smith was also behind such flops as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows and also is apparently responsible for the most recent draft of a Beetlejuice remake.
Just let that soak in for a little bit.
Now here’s a video of Gizmo dancing to remind us of better days.
