{Gremlins 3} A bit of Non-News on Joe Dante’s newest project.

We all would love to see Joe Dante helm a new Gremlins film, but it looks like we will have to wait a little longer to see anything with his name attached in a major capacity. 
Ain’t It Cool news reports that Joe Dante is working on a new film titled “Burying The Ex”  which he is using FundAnything, a crowdsourcing service to complete. This pretty much cements his non-involvement in a Gremlins 3 or Reboot in the near future. If he were to join the project in any hands-on manner it would likely not begin until at least 2015 at the earliest, putting any Dante-helmed Gremlins feature out of the 30 year anniversary window. 

Check out Joe Dante’s video on his new project here:

However, this announcement has made people on the internet a bit more vocal in asking the question on everyone’s mind which is obviously: Where is Gremlins 3? Even the press release for Burying The Ex lists Gremlins as one of his crowning achievements over more recent projects like The Hole (Which was wholly creepy and sadly missed by most people, a return to the gremlins style of family horror) so obviously whomever is writing his PR pieces knows Gremlins has some pull these days. 

Either way check out his FundAnything page and let us know if you back it and if you manage to get that Dinner with Dante, get him to spill the beans on Gremlins for us Gremlin fanatics.

Comment below, share what you think of his newest project and the use of Gremlins to attract attention! 

{Gremlins 3} IGN Reports: No Gremlins 3 For Joe Dante

Not really new news at all but interesting nonetheless.

“There are no plans in the offing to do another Gremlins movie” he revealed. “I think that because of the CGI situation and the fact that you can now do anything when you make a movie… the originalfilms were limited by the scope of what we could do technically, and that’s what the movies became about. Now it’s so wide-open, you can almost do anything, and I don’t think they’ve got a handle on what kind of movie it would be.

There you have it folks, right now he does not know of any plans for Gremlins 3. This doesn’t mean it isn’t happening, it just means it is not happening right now….stay tuned for more details…

For more information head over to IGN to read the rest of the article, and keep checking back there for the full interview.

Fantastic Fandom & Rumor Mill Update!

Well, after quite some time with nothing of much interest to report, we have a video from a very talented Gremlins fan, gremlin3q.gifand 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
