We've been hearing rumors about a third Gremlins film happening for years, and according to franchise star Zach Galligan, it's going to happen! He also reveals that it won't be a reboot or a remake, this film will be a direct sequel to the first two films, which is awesome! That's what I was hoping it would be if another film ever moved forward.
Galligan recently appeared at a screening for the original 1984 film at London's Prince Charles Cinema, and he did a little Q&A session with the audience. It was there he revealed the plans of the sequel:
"It’s not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form. Chris Columbus has come out and said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade."
The actor then likened the sequel to Jurassic World:
“So the only thing they will be - and apparently are going to be – doing is something along the lines of like Jurassic World, where it will be 30 years later."
We've got no official confirmation from the studio or anyone else involved with the project, but Galligan has obviously been talking to someone about it. The actor went on to say that he doesn't know if he'll be in it.
"I swear on my life, I don’t know if I’m in it or not, but I think there is probably a decent chance since I’m one of the few people left standing from the first movie."
It would make complete sense to bring him back, especially since it would be a sequel. It would also obviously be great to see Gizmo included in the story. I'd love to see the story continue with these two characters after all these years.
What would you like to see happen in a new Gremlins sequel?
