Is Warner Bros. getting serious about a Gremlins remake? It sure looks like it. Bloody-Disgusting reports that Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg have been strapped with producing duties, however, no writer or director are attached at this time.
The two have a first-look contract with the studio and are also at work on a Beetlejuice sequel. Their two-year deal was signed back in fall of 2011.
Earlier this year, talks of a Gremlins remake surfaced when Frank Marshall revealed that a redo could not happen without Steven Spielberg’s “okay.”
If this latest news is true, it means the remake is still in the “early stages” and a lot still needs to happen for it to come to fruition.
