Guys… Gizmo Might Die in ‘Gremlins 3’ According to Chris Columbus

After 27 years since cinemas were graced with Gremlins 2: The New Batch, talk of a Gremlins 3 is real and original screenwriter Chris Columbus has apparently written a script — and it’s going to be “twisted and dark.”

“I’m really proud of the script,” Columbus said in a Slash Film interview. “It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon.”

Columbus said his script asks a question which have been on many fans’ minds since the original Gremlins: if all the gremlins originated from getting Gizmo wet and feeding the mogwai after midnight, should Gizmo be killed off?

“I think it probably is a good idea to be honest with you,” Columbus said. “Too many people are dying.”

While this may disturb fans of the fluffy critter, there is some good news about this potential sequel/reboot. Despite significant advancements, the Gremlins themselves will still be brought to life as puppets, and not with CGI.

“Oh, without a doubt, minimal CGI,” Columbus said. “CGI will enable us to remove wires and make the puppeteers lives a little easier. It was brutal. It was like a marathon every night for those guys. In the bar scene alone there were 18 or 20 people behind the bar. No one had any space to move. It was just hellish for those guys so CGI will simplify that a little bit, but it’s all puppets.”

So, good news, we may be getting the Gremlins sequel we deserve after nearly three decades. Not so good news – things may take an extremely dark turn.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
