'Gremlims' could be the latest classic movie to get a reboot, if Steven Spielberg can be brought on board.
Steven Spielberg's 'Gremlins' movie could be rebooted, according to reports.
Vulture.com claims Warner Bros. is in contact with the director's Amblin Entertainment company to broker a deal that would allow a remake of the horror comedy.
His demands have always proved a stumbling block for the reboot, as it was ''too daunting a financial prospect,'' but sources suggest Spielberg - who was executive producer for the original in 1984 - could sign over the rights.

Kevin Kline makes music with his children.
The Oscar-winning actor - who has Owen, 18, and Greta, 16, with his actress wife Phoebe Cates - is proud of the bond he has with his kids because he knows he doesn't have to worry about them when they go out.
He said: "We actually make music together sometimes. I like jamming. That's the most fun! My kids have impeccable taste and judgment. I know that when they're out, they're not doing anything they wouldn't do right in front of me!"

Actor and comedian Russell Brand is to star in a remake of 1991 comedy Drop Dead Fred, it has been announced.
The film saw Phoebe Cates as a woman who loses her job and husband within her lunch hour and after returning to her family home is reunited with her anarchic childhood imaginary friend (played by Rik Mayall in the original).
Though it was a commercial and critical flop, Drop Dead Fred has attained cult classic status and is now set for a reboot from Universal Studios.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Brand will take the lead role as the havoc-causing fictional friend while Universal plan to introduce a look at the world of imaginary friends into the scenario.
Dennis McNicholas, one of the writers of the upcoming film adaptation of Land of the Lost, is to write the script for the Drop Dead Fred remake, according to the Hollywood Reporter, with Wanted's Marc Platt producing along with Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
Brand was last seen in Adam Sandler family film Bedtime Stories and is set to star in a remake of 1981 comedy Arthur, a new film version of The Tempest and alongside Jonah Hill in rock comedy Get Him to the Greek.

The 1988 cinematic version doesn't quite measure up. McInerney may have aspired to be the F. Scott Fitzgerald of his time, the movie suffers from the same fate as the Robert Redford version of The Great Gatsby: miscasting.

Actor Kevin Kline refuses to let his wife Phoebe Cates tell him when she plans to watch him on Broadway, New York - because she ruins his concentration.
Kline is currently starring alongside Jennifer Garner in Cyrano De Bergerac at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
The 60-year-old says, "I ask not to be told when she's coming. I don't like to know when anyone I know is in the house, especially family. It's just a distraction. They're a very discerning audience."
Movie star Kevin Kline is baffled by internet reports he and his wife Phoebe Cates are expecting a third child, insisting no one should believe anything they read online.
The Wild Wild West star insists the stories are ridiculous - and can't believe some websites even claim to have information about the phantom baby's name.
He says, "I've read things about myself on the internet that my kids have shown me and it's completely invented.
"Supposedly, my wife and I, we're expecting our third baby and it's due in the autumn, so what else would we name it but Autumn.
"You can't believe everything you read."
Kline also warns fans not to rush out and buy films he supposedly starred in - that don't exist.
He adds, "I've been credited with certain films that were never made. They're part of my filmography that I've read on the internet."
Kevin Kline plays Joey Boca - a guy who runs a pizza parlor in Seattle - as an oversexed, extremely Italian workaholic who is able to explain his chronic infidelity by saying with a straight face, "I'm a man, I got a lotta hormones in my body." It's a clown's performance, a filmmaker doesn't bring Kline in for this sort of role and demand subtlety but rather one that's so over-the-top it achieves a kind of genius that Kline also showcased in his similarly stereotypical role in A Fish Called Wanda (in that one, he played a clown's view of an American abroad, here he's the clowning pizza man, bad accent, bushy mustache and all).

FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH star Phoebe Cates quit her acting career behind to focus on her family life with husband Kevin Kline. Although she still gets acting offers, Cates always turns them down, preferring to care for her children, Owen and GRETA, and let Kline have his time in the spotlight. She says, "One of us had to do it." Cates has also opened a boutique in Manhattan, New York City, and is enjoying her new career as a high-end retailer. She says, "I love every part of it. Even the head-achy part. There's nothing I wouldn't consider selling."
Making a Hollywood story with a decidedly un-Hollywood flair, co-writers, co-directors and co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming take a casual, almost guerilla approach to their collaborative conception called "The Anniversary Party."
It's a shoestring production shot cinema vérité style in which these two gifted journeyman actors play a shaky show biz couple throwing themselves a sixth anniversary bash even though they've just recently and tentatively reconciled after a big infidelity blow-up.
Their guests -- movie stars, directors, industry types and hangers-on -- seem vaguely uncomfortable congratulating Sally and Joe Therrian (Leigh and Cumming) on their longevity under the circumstances. But in a town where fakery is the norm, it's easy for everyone to put on a happy face -- even the non-industry next-door neighbors (Denis O'Hare and Mina Badie) who have been invited only in an attempt to ease tensions over a barking dog dispute that's threatening to turn legal.
