Remember when you heard a few weeks ago that there might be a Gremlins 3 in 3D, and you reflexively curled up in a ball and cried for hours? Chris Columbus, the writer of the original film, was right there with you. Coming Soon caught up with the now-director today, and he said the Internet rumor was news to him too.
And Columbus apparently hasn't been spending a lot of time with George Lucas lately, because while he admits he wouldn't mind revisiting Gremlins, he doesn't want it to be in CG.
None of this means, of course, that Gremlins 3D won't happen someday. But if it had begun at all, and its makers are serious about connecting it to the original film, I imagine Columbus and Spielberg would have heard about it by now. So you can quit building your Gremlins bomb shelter, but hang on to those emergency VHS copies, just in case.
