Since they were released on the same day back in ’84, we here at EG always like to follow our Ghostbusters posts with a good Gremlins one. While promoting his Percy jackson, Chris Columbus spoke a bit about all the recent Gremlins talk…”I spoke to Steven Spielberg a couple days ago and said, ‘You know, I’ve been reading on the internet about this ‘Gremlins 3D’ and no one’s approached him either, so I don’t know if that’s really true.”
“It would be fun to go back and revisit (them). Something like Gremlins, which is a movie I really like, I think it’s impossible to recreate in a CGI environment. I think it will inevitably lose some of its charm. Those are edgy Muppets in a sense and you don’t want to lose that sense of anarchy that those gremlins had, because behind the scenes are 25 puppeteers making them to come to life.”
How great would it be for Ghostbusters 3 and Gremlins 3 to both open on June 8, 2011?!!
