News Dark ‘Gremlins 3’ Script Returns to the Macabre Tone of the Original Published 2 years ago on August 21, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet A dark and disturbing Gremlins script calls for the death of our beloved Gizmo. Seriously, that’s a pretty crazy idea. SlashFilm had the opportunity to talk with original screenwriter Chris Columbus, who says that he’s completed a screenplay for the long-awaited Gremlins 3. Columbus says the third film will be twisted and dark as anything, which sounds great to us. But the question still remains, should Gizmo be killed off?! “Very good observation,” Columbus exclaimed. “That comes up in the movie, certainly.” That raises a number of ethical issues, the site notes. Gizmo himself has done nothing wrong. It’s human negligence that allows him to get soaked and lets the mischievous mogwai transform. Still, even Columbus thinks cute and loving Gizmo might not be worth the risk. “I think it probably is a good idea to be honest with you,” Columbus said. “Too many people are dying.” Columbus states that his script returns to the macabre tone of the original film. “I’m really proud of the script,” Columbus said. “It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon.” Columbus also states that the film would still use puppets, but visual effects could make puppetry easier to achieve than it was in 1984. “Oh, without a doubt, minimal CGI,” Columbus said. “CGI will enable us to remove wires and make the puppeteers lives a little easier. It was brutal. It was like a marathon every night for those guys. In the bar scene alone there were 18 [or] 20 people behind the bar. No one had any space to move. It was just hellish for those guys so CGI will simplify that a little bit but it’s all puppets.” Gremlins 3 has been rumoured for many years and it’s still in the dark on whether or not the film will be put into production at Warner Bros. I guess we’ll have to continue the waiting game.
