Gremlins 3 (Notes for a proper sequel treatment)

Rumor has it the new Gremlins 3 script is a reboot.  Here are some quick notes for a treatment of Gremlins 3 as if it were a proper sequel:

Gremlins 3 could start with footage of the first lunar landing and show the supposed missing 2 minutes of footage which features long shots of a Gremlin or two in background. CUT TO: PRESENT DAY-Dark Side of the Moon. We see the active thousand year old Gremlin Lunar Colony.

The Gremlins fly down in a 're-commissioned' MTV satellite to steal the Presidential 'Football' and Gizmo hitches a ride on their craft as they head back to the Moon.  (Gizmo was getting the medal of honor at the White House for acts of bravery) They are able to rewire it so we can't disable it from Earth. (scene would occur directly after the opening showing of the 'missing 2 minutes' of NASA footage.)

This would further bolster the origin mythos surrounding the original film-Little green men from space. Billy & Cate go to the moon via SpaceX (with a team of course) to retrieve the Presidential Football and Gizmo, now held prisoner by the Gremlins. (their quick trip to the Moon scene would pay homage to 'Nothing Lasts Forever' via Billy Murray cameo)


The Gremlins routinely apply water to one Mega-Mogwai in order to make more of them so they have plenty of food.  That one Mega-Mogwai, known by the Gremlins as 'Soupy' befriends Gizmo.  Gizmo feeds Soupy after midnight somehow....  And the Mega-Mogwai in both regular form and their new Gremlin form fight the Gremlins for their freedom while Billy & Cate & Gizmo try to retrieve the Presidential 'Football'.

Feel free to add your own ideas to the concept notes!

Andrew Dice Clay has popped up in several things over the last few years. I'd like to see him as a Mega-Mogwai and he should have a contemplative sadness in his eyes. At some point he and a fellow Mega-Mogwai played by Artie Lange should have an argument about which of them feels worse about the people they've turned out to be.

Gender swaps are big now, but then at the same time a lot of folks don't like them, so I say go right down the middle and make it an all trans cast. Just the people I mean, but yeah, I want to see Gizmo a little uncomfortable but trying to seem like he's totally cool with it. If Gizmo can pull it off I think we're talking best actor oscar. Also maybe someone fucks a fishman.

i'm guessing they'll just tell basically the same story as the first movie with some kid from a show on the cw network.  bonus points if they create a cgi peter falk.  really looking forward to a cgi dude with a lazy eye.  i'll totally be mad and all trolly if i don't get a cgi falk.  oh wait, he wasn't in the gremlins movies.  well ... i still want falk.

The Gremlins' Lunar Colony on the Dark Side of the Moon is built out of old satellite and NASA mission waste parts.  A piece of SKYLAB is used for the Lead Gremlin's command center.

@JJJ23  Nice!  Just change 'Soupy' the Mega-Mogwai to 'Suzy' and the whole caper gets funnier.    These days you can get away with so much that PG should be just fine.

Sounds great, I'd also push for a hard R. I want to see Gizmo get laid and maybe do some coke. Also a character should at some point say the line, "It's always after midnight somewhere, baby!". I feel as a society we've earned that much.

'The Reckoning' is a temporary title of course.   Here are the first two popular movie posters:
