Probably not. But Chris Columbus has joined two projects as a producer that I frankly hope don’t come to fruition. He’s come aboard Gremlins and Goonies as a co-producer along with Steven Spielberg.
Prior to beginning a very successful career as a director with ‘Adventures in Babysitting’ Columbus wrote the scripts to Gremlins in 1984 and Goonies in 1985.
I hope that with Spielberg and Columbus both being attached, that both films are in safe hands. They certainly have the right cheerleaders on board the projects.
On second thought, leave them alone.
…Or let Joe Dante make the new Gremlins.
