Hollywood’s ceaseless volley of re-creating past movie franchises, will every now and then turn up a majority of exasperating byproducts. By chance, “Gremlins,” according to its original star – Zach Galligan will be taking a different yet seemingly familiar route as a sequel and not a reboot is up for the making.
Den of Geek reported that the now 51-year-old actor made the details public during the limited two-day showing of the first Gremlins movie at London’s Prince Charles Theater.
“It’s not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape or form,” Galligan confirmed as creator Chris Columbus has made it a point that “as long as he is alive it will never be remade.”
Columbus, as reported, has been very vocal of his adoration especially for the first film.
Galligan, who starred both in the 1984 movie and the 1990 sequel of the Warner Bros.’ much-loved outlandish horror comedy, is keeping his fingers crossed that he will still be given a title role for the as yet to come installment.
‘I think there is probably a decent chance since I’m one of the few people left standing from the first movie,” the actor who portrayed Billy Peltzer, the son of the inventor in Gremlins was looking forward as he was quoted in Metro.
Additionally, the setting up of the Gremlins 3 narrative has been motivated by the recent success of “Jurassic World.” The concept of “where it will be 30 years later” will play a pivotal role along with various allusions from the earlier installments. This move though will definitely furnish a reunion of sorts for the past characters which Galligan is optimistic will employ Planet of the Apes’ CGI and real-time special effects.
Gremlins involved Peltzer, who acquired a cuddly fur ball pet, from his father only to ill-advisedly be unfamiliar with the foreign Mogwai’s basic needs and necessary precautions. His confusion results in a colossal pro-creating of altered versions of his once lovable house pet.
