A new Gremlins film has been in development for several years, with a handful of different writers attached at various points. Last we heard, the new installment in the franchise will take a Jurassic World-style approach, essentially operating as a legacyquel that takes place 30 years later and maintains the canon from the previous films while introducing new characters. While we wait for more updates on Gremlins 3, two of the writers who previously developed ideas for the sequel have shared their rejected pitch, which basically sounds like Mogwais on a Plane.

The Gremlins reboot has been in development for years now, and last we heard, the new installment in the franchise won’t be a remake, nor will it have the involvement of original director Joe Dante. That’s good and bad news, but original writer and producer Chris Columbus is quite protective of the property, and while it won’t be a remake, it will take inspiration from the biggest film of the year.

Reboots of Gremlins and Goonies have been in the works for so long, that we tend to tune out the myriad “updates” as they happen. Each movie has gone in and out of development hell so many times over the past few years — It’s finally happening!....Nevermind, it’s dead. — it’s very easy to wonder if either of these films will ever actually happen. We caught up with director Chris Columbus, the original writer of both films, and asked him straight up: Do you really think either of those movies are ever going to happen? And, as the Goonies would say, never say die.

Last we heard, the Gremlins remake/sequel/reboot/whatever was dead, and there was much rejoicing in the land of movie nerds, and we all quickly forgot the nightmare that could have happened. If you were against the idea of a new Gremlins movie, we have bad news for you: it’s still very much happening as a new writer has been hired to replace Seth-Grahame Smith.
