Everyone hopes for another Gremlins movie. But as much as the fans want to see it, the man behind the franchise, Joe Dante, is pretty much against it. Although confident that Warner Bros. will eventually do a sequel, he feels that a third film isn't necessary.
Joe Dante tells Latino Review, "Gremlins 3! Well, I’m sure there will be one. I know I won’t have anything to do with it. They won’t ask me. But the goal with “Gremlins 2” was to make sure there wouldn’t be a “Gremlins 3”. If there is a “Gremlins 3” they’re welcome to it. I think what’s holding it up is that they can’t conceive of what to do because the first movies were defined by the technology, it was what the puppets could do and do well and not do and that’s what the movies became. Now you could do anything with CGI so the field is so open that nobody could focus on what exactly it should be. I can’t say I’m looking forward to seeing it."
