Actor Zach Galligan says that “Gremlins 3” is “definitely” in the works with Chris Columbus “aggressively working” on the forthcoming film.
Galligan, who played Billy Peltzer in the first two movies in the franchise, has confirmed Warner Bros. are well up for the motion picture, and also says how Columbus is working hard on the film, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“He has been aggressively working on a ‘Gremlins 3’ that takes place in present day. He says there will be some new characters and some old characters — I guess in the style of a ‘Force Awakens’ type sequel. One thing we know for sure is they have a writer on board,” Galligan told Bleeding Cool.
He added: “Warner Bros definitely wants it, Chris Columbus wants to do it because he’d like to undo the ‘Gremlins 2’ thing as he wasn’t thrilled with it…”
“Gremlins 2” dropped in 1990 and told the story of the creatures’ return as they take over a media mogul’s building.
