Warner Bros mulling over a Gremlins reboot

If you enjoyed the recent seasonal re-release of Joe Dante's Gremlins , then you might be pleased to hear that the long-rumoured reboot may still be a possibility.

According to Vulture , Warner Bros are turning over the idea of giving the franchise a new lease of life, and have entered talks with Steven Spielberg's production company, Amblin Entertainment.

Such a possibility has been mooted many times over the years, although Spielberg's price has always been too high for a deal to be done.

However, the fact that Warner are in talks with Amblin suggests that they have reason to believe something may have changed, while their recent reissue of the original bodes well for how seriously they're taking the endeavour.

Whether or not a new Gremlins film actually gets off the ground remains to be seen, but it certainly sounds as though Warner has an appetite for one. Let's just hope the deal isn't done after midnight.
