Talking to Red Carpet News at the Showmasters London Film and Comic Con 2015, Gremlins star Zach Galligan gave his enthusiastic reaction to the increasing likelihood of a third Gremlins film.
Writer Chris Columbus has been hinting that a planned new Gremlins film would possibly feature returning characters as opposed to being merely a modern remake of the first film. Zach Galligan who played human hero Billy Peltzer in the fist two films thinks that opens the door for a full on sequel and a Gremlins 3 and he has some pretty interesting ideas about what kind of film it could be.
Galligan suggests that the new Gremlins film he would want to see would be an all out action film, taking inspiration from some of the previous films most memorable scenes. Like exploding a Gremlin filled movie theatre , using the Peltzer family sword to decapitate another and the chainsaw wielding finale in the first film.
Galligan’s most interesting suggestion is that the Gremlins might have an additional metamorphosis. So that having already turned from cuddly Mogwai into vicious Gremlins, the mischievous movie monsters would turn into something even more deadly that audiences haven’t seen yet. It’s a fun idea and would provide an obvious opportunity to showcase the vast improvement in special effects since the last sequel.
Galligan also points to the recent success of Jurrasic World as an example of how the beloved franchise could be successfully updated whilst building respectfully on the legacy of the previous two cult classics.
