It’s 2014 out here in the real world, but apparently it’s 1980-something over at Warner Bros. Following this weekend’s news that a Goonies sequel was on the way, we’ve learned that a Gremlins remake is also on the fast track. Hit the jump for more details.

Briefly: The talk of a Gremlins sequel has turned to talk of a remake, and now we’ve got one person who is reportedly shepherding the film through the Warner Bros. machine. Seth Grahame-Smith, creator of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and the screenwriter of Dark Shadows, has been given the reigns to the remake.
Bloody Disgusting reports that Grahame-Smith is working alongside David Katzenberg. There aren’t any details yet about what they’ll do with the story, which originally told of a young man whose father gives him an unusual creature as a present. Trouble is, the creature has rules, and breaking them leads to an infestation of intelligent, demented beasts with a taste for mayhem.
There also is no word on how the Gremlins will be realized. The original film was a product of the pre-CGI era, and featured wonderful puppet and animatronic work. If the remake goes into production, it will likely use, at the very least, a blend of puppets and CGI. In other words, we don’t know much about the remake, but what we do know isn’t making it seem like a great idea.

Despite persistent rumors of another sequel, the Gremlins franchise has somehow managed to stay clear of the current craze of remaking / rebooting / sequelizing old movies. Last year, producer Frank Marshall said that he thought the films should be left alone, and that a remake was unlikely to ever get made. Fans everywhere breathed a sigh of relief, and went about their business.
But Hollywood can get very stubborn when it comes to a franchise as fondly remembered as Gremlins is, and so Warner Bros. is now pushing hard for reboot rights. Worse still, there actually seems to be a chance that Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment will hand them over. Where’s a bright light when you need one? More details after the jump.

Summer time is sequel time. For the purposes of this particular article, it’s the time for sequels that don’t exist yet and, for all we know, may never exist. But Zombieland 2, Jurassic Park 4 and Gremlins 3 are all films that come up in conversation with filmmakers on a semi-regular basis. We’ve got the latest updates on all three below. A hint: don’t warm up the popcorn just yet. Read More »
Hey! Remember the ’80s? Of course you do! Movies like The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Gremlins, Back to the Future, Krull and The Monster Squad got worn out in your VHS player as your penchant for film fandom either developed or blossomed. Everyone has their favorite films from the period and, fairly regularly, we feature outstanding art to back that statement up. Today is no different. Todd Brown of Twitch Film recently programmed a series of classic 1980s kids films in Toronto and had Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative design limited edition posters for the screenings. Sounds pretty standard, right? Wrong. Erickson’s prints were so limited that they never went on sale to the general public.
After wading through some legal red tape (meaning the removal of all proper names) Twitch and Phantom City Creative (who recently did that awesome Freaks & Geeks/Undeclared piece) can now legally sell all of these beautiful tributes to some of your favorite films of the Eighties. All the films mentioned above are represented along with The Last Starfighter, Time Bandits and The Dark Crystal. After the jump, check them all out and find out where you can purchase them.
