‘Gremlins 3’ Update from Zach Galligan
Zach Galligan, who starred in the first two Gremlins movies, stated in a recent interview with Bleeding Cool that work on a third film was once again moving forward. Frazer Brown interviewed the actor.
Here’s what Zach had to say:
“I think you can tell what’s happening with Gremlins 3 the same way you could tell with Gremlins 2. It’s the same people and they tend to work the same way. There is a huge time gap but it’s Warner Bros, Spielberg and Chris Columbus. Now, Chris Columbus didn’t have anything to do with Gremlins 2 – because by his own admission he didn’t see a franchise. He kind of regrets it I believe, but he was ‘one and done’ I don’t think he cared for Gremlins 2 and the direction some of the characters went in, so he’s kind of wrestled control back. Everything I’m quoting is stuff he’s publicly said… ‘There will NEVER be a remake, There will NEVER be a reboot there will only be a SEQUEL.'”
However, 27 years is a long time for a sequel or reboot. Moreover, Zach still has no idea if he’ll even be a part of Gremlins 3 if it does ever get made. Finally, if they do make it, I hope they use real puppets, instead of CGI.
