chris columbus gremlins reboot

Chris Columbus has confirmed he is involved in a Gremlins reboot in a recent interview with Collider where he was promoting his latest movie, Pixels.  Collider asked him about the Gremlins remake, to which he admitted he was involved.

"When I finished Gremlins, and the first Gremlins was released, I was asked to direct the sequel, and I said there was nowhere else to go. This is before the pre-crazy franchise era of Hollywood when everything is a franchise".

He also admitted that he has kind of taking inspiration from J.J. Abrams and his work on Star Trek:

"When he did Star Trek, he has a sense of taking that sort of sense of nostalgia that we all want, and bringing it forward, like he brought Leonard Nimoy into the first Star Trek. That to me was why we connected to that."

He mentioned the Star Wars trailer too and seeing Han and Chewie back brings back a nostalgic feeling and that's what he wants to do with the Gremlins reboot.  He also keeps mentioning the Gremlins project as a reboot not a sequel.

He did say that the Gremlins reboot is much further along than the Goonies sequel that keeps surfacing.  On the Goonies sequel he said:

'We're still searching, but we are searching very hard to try and make it work. But we're not going to let anybody down. If we don't feel it's right, and that's between Donner, Spielberg and myself, if we don't feel it's right, we're not gonna do it"
