According to Vulture, Warner Bros. is once again in talks with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to secure the rights for a reboot of the 1984 horror/comedy movie, Gremlins. These talks have happened before between the two, and it has always ended with Spielberg’s asking price simply being too high. The studio is very keen on landing Spielberg’s talent in some capacity, most likely as an executive producer that can help sell the movie with just his name being attached.
For those of you too young to remember, Gremlins revolved around a young boy who gets a mysterious pet called a mogwai that spawns multiple creatures that then turn into destructive monsters. The movie itself then spawned its own sequel, which disappointed at the box office compared to the original. But of course Hollywood isn't taking that as a warning sign. We'll keep you updated if any deal gets done.
