GREMLINS remake looming closer?

In the reboot crazed state that the film industry is currently in, it looks like all successful franchises will eventually be redone. The idea of rebooting Gremlins has been discussed for years, and Vulture is reporting that Warner Bros. is in talks with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entetainment to reboot the 1984 horror comedy. As expected, there are numerous roadblocks; these negotiations have been on and off for years, Spielberg wants too much money, and his creative input would be required. Nevertheless, Vulture’s sources say “it might just actually come off this time.” The website didn’t specify why this time would be any different, and how anything has substantially changed.

I wonder what holiday they can ruin for Phoebe Cates this time. Here’s hoping that if it comes to pass they still use puppets for most of the effects.
