Opening Pages Emerge From Unmade GREMLINS Reboot!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

Back in 1984 the Horror comedy GREMLINS hit the scene. The film was released by Warner Bros, directed by Joe Dante, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. It has a brilliant angle as the story follows a young man who receives a strange creature called a mogwai as a pet, which then spawns other creatures who transform into small, destructive, evil monsters. Then in 1990 Dante also directed the sequel, GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH.

Now in the present day, the idea of a new GREMLINS film has been kicking around for a while. We last heard in November that the project was still moving forward.

We have something very interesting for you today. The first two pages from a pitch for the GREMLINS reboot that was rejected have now surfaced online. The idea came from FREDDY VS. JASON and FRIDAY THE 13TH 2009 writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

This idea would have been a lot of fun to watch go down on screen. The crossing of the time zone angle mixed with the plane crash could have been a killer opening.

With this idea now out of the picture, we can only wait and see if the world will ever get another GREMLINS film. We will continue to bring you the very latest as we hear it.
