Well, after quite some time with nothing of much interest to report, we have a video from a very talented Gremlins fan, and a Gremlins 3 Rumor Mill Update!!
Let’s get that pesky rumor mill tidbit out of the way first.
A short bit ago, I recieved a message from one of our readers, Tony Anderson, who reports
“Just talked to Joe Dante yesterday (10/6/07) and asked about GREMLINS 3. He said there is nothing happening as far as he knows. He also mentioned that it is extremely unlikely he will have anything to do with it, if it does happen. So, there you go, from the man himself after a screening of MATINEE and GREMLINS 2 here in San Francisco, at the Castro theater. :)”
While this is nothing new, it does somewhat put the Direct-To-DVD rumor on the back burner, for better or worse.
We have long known that Joe Dante likely would not have had anything to do with it, after what he has said numerous times in interviews and personal Q&A.
So right now: Nothing is happening. This does not mean the film is not going through talks or negotiations behind the scenes, but simply there is nothing concrete involving Joe Dante. Keep up hope all you Gremlins out there!
Thank you Tony for keeping us informed, and who knows, if enough people keep bugging him “IS THERE GONNA BE A GREMLINS 3?” maybe he will consider coming back for a threequel.
Now, on to our newest Fan submission!
First we have a “proud certified black nerd” celebrity, Andre Meadows, who you may remember from CW’s Beauty And The Geek.
Andre sent me an email with a bit of info on his love for all things Gremlins and wanted to give us a heads up on his video where he shows off his Nerd Crib with his Gremlins collection, DDR and Nintendo. (A man after my own heart!)
Around 1:20 in is the Gremlins segment and a fantastic Tony Randall (The Brain Gremlin) Impression!
If you go for nerd comedy, (and if you don’t, what are you doing on this site anyways?) you need to check him out, he has a great site at www.blacknerdcomedy.comwhere you can check out his quite unique brand of comedy in the form of V-logs (video blogs), clips and even a couple of his TV appearances!
Hopefully we will hear more from andre in the near future
