News Zach Galligan Says Warner Bros. Wants ‘Gremlins 3’ Eventually Published 2 years ago on December 27, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet For many years horror fans have been wanting another Gremlins sequel, and it’s been around 26 years since the last one. We just wonder why Warner Bros. have left it this long to even consider another film in the series. Zach Galligan seems to think it’s going to happen at some point, just a matter of time. Recently, Galligan was interviewed by the guys over at the Bleeding Cool website, and he had quite a bit to say about the potential of a Gremlins 3 from Warner Bros. We just hope an announcement is made soon. Galligan on the direction of the Gremlins series: “I think you can tell what’s happening with Gremlins 3 the same way you could tell with Gremlins 2. It’s the same people and they tend to work the same way. There is a huge time gap but it’s Warner Bros, Spielberg and Chris Columbus. Now, Chris Columbus didn’t have anything to do with Gremlins 2 – because by his own admission he didn’t see a franchise. He kind of regrets it I believe, but he was ‘one and done.’ I don’t think he cared for Gremlins 2 and the direction some of the characters went in, so he’s kind of wrested control back. Everything I’m quoting is stuff he’s publicly said: ‘There will NEVER be a remake. There will NEVER be a reboot. There will only be a SEQUEL.’” On where Gremlins 3 would take place: “[Columbus] has been aggressively working on a Gremlins 3 that takes place in present day. He tantalizingly says there will be some NEW characters and some OLD characters – I guess in the style of a Force Awakens type sequel. One thing we know for sure is they have a writer on board. The only insight I can give is the following: There was a 6 year gap between Gremlins and Gremlins 2; most of that time was spent with them writing and rejecting ideas and re-writing. One of the ideas that was rejected was ‘gremlins in Vegas.’ They went with that for 18 months and felt it was too expensive. Eventually they came up with the tower idea, where essentially I’m working for Donald Trump, our new President! That took six years to happen. Carl Ellsworth has been apparently working on the script for a year and a half now. If no new names start appearing on the IMDB listing then that means they like the script. If new names start appearing, y’know Kevin Smith appears, it means it’s back in rewrites with a new vision.” Galligan on Warner Bros: “Warner Bros definitely wants it, Chris Columbus wants to do it because he’d like to undo the Gremlins 2 thing as he wasn’t thrilled with it, and Spielberg wants to do it I imagine – because he’s Spielberg – and why wouldn’t he want to do it. Once he’s found the right script he can attach his name and make a ton of money. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” Dark Universe would definitely welcome a sequel, so bring it on!
