Warner Brothers Has Reportedly Fast-Tracked a 'Gremlins' Reboot

In case you aren't satisfied with the upcoming big-screen returns of Police Academy, The Goonies, The Pink Panther, Fletch, Naked Gun, and Ghostbusters, Ain't It Cool News is also reporting that the 1984 comedy-horror Gremlins is the latest addition to the film reboot lineup. According to the report, Gremlins has joined Goonies as a fast-track priority for Warner Brothers. Probably the most interesting part of the Gremlins news is writer Chris Columbus's comments to Screen Rant back in 2012, where he said the Gremlins reboot would be "impossible to recreate in a CGI environment" since it would "lose that sense of anarchy that those gremlins had, because behind the scenes are 25 puppeteers making them to come to life." Considering 99% of today's movie monsters are made on computers, the thought of bringing back old-school puppets for a new Gremlins film sounds pretty neat.
