Director Joe Dante confirms new Gremlins movie is in the works.

Director Joe Dante has confirmed that a new Gremlins movie is in the works.


The 62-year-old, who helmed the first two instalments of the franchise in 1984 and 1990 respectively, admitted that a third outing is in its planning stages.


I hear they’re going to make another one soon. I can see why – it would be stupid to let that title go to waste. The actors from the first two are too old to do a proper sequel, so I’m sure when the new one arrives it will be a remake of the original.”
