Gremlins Remake Confirmed!

Filed under: Film Flickers

gremlins remake

Don't put them in direct sunlight! Don't let them get wet! And whatever you do, DON'T feed them after midnight!

Well, it looks like someone got the original 1984 horror comedy Gremlins wet, because it has spawned another one!

No, not part three- a remake!

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will produce the reboot of the Joe Dante classic.

No word yet on who will write the film. Though we did hear Gizmo was looking to get into directing… LOLz!

Gremlins Remake Is FINALLY Happening!!! …Maybe

gremlins remake possible talks steven spielberg warner bros please

For the love of all that is sacred and holy, please — someone — MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

Warner Bros. is in talks with Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment to make a Gremlins re-boot!!!

YES! YES! YES!

It's been 22 years, 7 months, and 3 days since the vastly underrated Gremlins 2: The New Batch graced theaters with its Hulk Hogan-infused presence, and the world hasn't set eyes on a Mogwai since!

Sure, we've encountered our fair unfair share of unfounded speculation!

Stand next to the water cooler fridge with Diet Coke in any Hollywood office, and your ears are bound to ingest a few delicately wonderful rumors about a Gremlins re-boot — but that talk never leads anywhere!

This time, however, those careless whispers could actually come true!!

Of course, Stevie Sunshine wouldn't direct the reboot/remake/sequel/amusement park ride — seriously, we fans will settle for anything — but he would serve as a producer!

If it helps, we promise to never eat past midnight ever again, LOLz!! But, no — REALLY!

Harry Carey Jr. Has Passed Away At The Age Of 91

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

This is so sad!

The great actor Harry Carey Jr. has passed away at the age of 91. He died of natural causes in Santa Barbara, surrounded by his family and friends.

Carey was in over 100 films, but is best known for his roles in John Ford’s westerns. He also acted in Gremlins and Tombstone.

Leonard Maltin, a film critic, talked about the actor, saying:

"In recent years, he became kind of the living historian of the modern era. He would get hired on films by young directors who just wanted to work with him, to be one step away from the legends. Some hired him to just hear his stories between takes."

This is truly a huge loss to the film world and Carey will be forever missed.

Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.

R-Rated Puppet Movie In The Works!

Filed under: Film Flickers

R-Rated Puppets? You’ve got our attention!

The English language Swedish film We R Animals will be the debut film of Thobias Hoffmen, and it hopes to go into production in 2011. We hope it does too!

They recently shot test footage in an effort to entice investors. We hope it works, because we can tell you we’re totally enticed!

Here’s what the director has said about the project:

Most characters in the movie will be played by hand puppets, with animatronic faces. The same kind of dolls that were used out to include Gremlins and Labyrinth. The only characters who are not puppets are people in the film, but you can count on one hand. The style of the movie, I would best describe with the words “a live-action version of a cartoon world.” A bit like an adaptation of a graphic novel. It is our world, yet not. As a living painting by CM Coolidge, which is drawing everything to a head.

And here is the official plot synopsis:

Snow White the rabbit is stuck in a sadistic man’s pet store, she craves for love but nobody wants to take her home. But one day the animals wreck havoc and they all escape, including Snow White. She gets lost with her newfound freedom and almost dies, until the nice old lady Alice saves her. Snow White would’ve had a bright future if not for Alice’s jealous and vindictive dogs, who call on their friend Flash, a shady and devious pimp cat. Together they plan to transform Alice’s apartment into a brothel for animals, and force Snow White and even the human Alice into prostitution.

We R Animals is a comic adventure, filled with drug using cats, horny dogs, cat-ninja assassins, vampire bats, cruelty and magic. In essence We R Animals is a love story told with warmth, where sometimes the laughter sits in the throat and forces us to question the morals and views of both animals and man.

We really hope they move forward with production on this film. Lots of wonderful things come from R-rated puppet films. Peter Jackson made Meet the Feebles in 1989, and later went on to direct the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Who knows…maybe the We R Animals director will go on to direct film adaptations of the collective works of Charles Dickens!

R U Intrigued by We R Animals?
