Is There a Gremlins Reboot on the Way?

The notion of sequelizing or rebooting Joe Dante's 1984 horror/comedy classic Gremlins is one that has been heavily debated among fans for years. Today, Vulture is reporting that, according to their unnamed sources, Warner Bros. is negotiating with producer Steven Spielberg to figure out a way to finally make it happen.

At this stage, details are few and far between and if the project does move forward, it's likely far too early to know exactly what form it might take. No matter what, though, a new Gremlins film won't materialize without the involvement of Spielberg.

Although the first film was a hit, Dante himself was reluctant to step behind the camera for a sequel. He did, however, in 1990 with Gremlins 2: The New Batch, a decidedly more farcical take on the mischievous creatures and one that ironically enough pokes a great deal of fun at what happens when they fall into the hands of a large corporation.
