Warner Bros. wants to reboot Gremlins because Mogwais

For several years Gremlins creator Joe Dante threatened to make another sequel to his Mogwai movies, but to no avail. And now it looks like Warner Bros. would rather just reboot the whole franchise without him than pump out a third installment with him. But the idea of a CG-heavy Gremlins fills us with dread. Is this really the future of our beloved singing Gizmo?

According to Vulture Warner Bros. is trying to gobble up the reboot rights, even though everyone would rather they leave our precious 80s franchise alone. Other studios have tried to buy the rights to Gremlins from Steven Spielberg's Amblin before, but it always proved to be too expensive. But Vulture insists this time it might work out. We kind of hope it doesn't. Sorry, singing fur babies.
