It seems the rumours may be true. It was suggested back in January, that

Warner Bros.

were in negotiations with

Steven Spielberg

’s, Amblin Entertainment, to remake the

Joe Dante

directed, 1984, horror-holiday classic, Gremlins. Well, it would appear the negotiations have gone well, as horror news site Bloody Disgusting has announced that

Warner Bros

. are “officially moving ahead” with the remake, instead of a follow up sequel to Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

Seth Grahame-Smith

, author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is reportedly named to produce the film, alongside

David Katzenberg

, son of Dreamworks CEO,

Jeffrey Katzenberg

, although it is unclear yet whether


will pen the script himself.

The original film, starring

Zach Galligan

as ‘Billy’, follows a young boy who is given a strange new pet for Christmas by his father (

Hoyt Axton

). After being given three very simple instructions on how to care for it, Billy inadvertently breaks them all, and happy holiday chaos ensues.

No word yet has been give as to who will direct the newest member of the Gremlins family.
