News Original ‘Gremlins’ Director Joe Dante Explains the Hold Up on Next Film Published 2 years ago on September 27, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet What is keeping Warner Bros. Pictures and writer/producer Chris Columbus from getting the next Gremlins film into production? Well, the original films director Joe Dante reveals his own thoughts on why it’s been delayed for so long. “I probably have less information to give you than anybody because I am not involved with it, I don’t control the material, it’s reverted back to Chris Columbus who wrote the script for the first movie,” Dante tells Forbes. “They have plans to do something but what Chris wants to do may not be what Warner wants to do and it’s not just Warner it’s also a lot of other people like Amblin and Steven Spielberg – everyone has to agree on what they want to do and at this point nobody is going to figure that out.” Dante goes on to say that he thinks it could be a prequel, but nothing has been confirmed at this point. “I think the reuniting of the cast is highly unlikely,” he added. “Perhaps a Gremlins prequel might be something they will do but I don’t know as I was not asked to be involved.” Dark Universe will keep you posted when/if we hear more.
