According to MarketSaw, a blog devoted to 3-D movies, Gremlins is the latest '80s franchise returning to the big screen, following in the footsteps of Tron: Legacy and the long-in-development Ghostbusters III.
I have very good information from a top source that tells me another GREMLINS movie is coming to the silver screens and it will be in stereoscopic 3D! It is in the early stages with still lots of hurdles to pass, but it is being developed. This is not a 3D conversion of the original to be clear.
Among the details still not known: Will Gremlins be rendered as CGI or use puppets, as in the original movies? Will director Joe Dante will be involved? And, perhaps most important, WHY?
