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, Iím sure there will be one. I know I wonít have anything to do with it. They wonít ask me. But the goal with ďGremlins 2Ē was to make sure there wouldnít be a ďGremlins 3Ē. If there is a ďGremlins 3Ē theyíre welcome to it. I think whatís holding it up is that they canít 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 thatís 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 canít say Iím looking forward to seeing it."
