Gremlins 3 has just released the latest news update from Zach Galligan confirming that Gremlins 3 is happening! The latest Gremlins film will not be a reboot or remake. The film will take place 30 years after the original movie. Galligan says that the approach to the Gremlins 3 film will be similar to the route Jurassic World (2015) went. Galligan is not sure whether he will be in the movie or not, full details below. Remember, this is not official news released by the studio.
From Zach Galligan’s interview at London’s Prince Charles Cinema’s showing of Gremlins (1984):
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.
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.
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.
