“It’s not going to be a reboot,” Galligan told the audience at a screening of the first Gremlins at Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square. “It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form. Chris Columbus has come out and said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade.”

Instead, the film will be set thirty-some years after the original. “All of the elements from the first, at least the first Gremlins movie — Chris Columbus didn’t really have much to do with the second Gremlins movie so I don’t know how he feels about that — but all of the things and events that happened in the first one will be referred to,” said the actor. “And apparently some of the characters from the first one will reappear in the new one they are planning right now. I swear on my life, I don’t know if I’m in it or not, but I think there is probably a decent chance since I’m one of the few people left standing from the first movie.”

The script is being handled by Goosebumps screenwriter Carl Ellsworth, but all other details are unknown, including Columbus’s feelings on Gremlin 2: The New Batch.
