Zach Galligan has high hopes for the future of Gremlins. returns (someday), and NBC sets its sights on new X-Filesian drama Debris. To me, my spoilers!
In a recent interview with Syfy, Zach Galligan stated Netflixâ€™s upcoming animated series, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, is a â€œstepping stoneâ€ for a third Gremlins movie.
It seems like what theyâ€™re going to do is reeducate us on the mythology surrounding Gremlins and Gizmo and Mogwai and, of course, most importantly, the three nebulous rules. You have to figure that theyâ€™re using the animated series as a stepping stone to the larger endgame, which is a live-action Gremlins movie. That would be my assumption and itâ€™s really not that much of a stretch to think that thatâ€™s what theyâ€™re doing.
[Joe Dante] said that the people involved in it are very smart and very respectful of the franchise and doing a very good job with a lot of interesting ideas. Of course, thatâ€™s pretty vague, but it was overwhelmingly positive and I know Joe well enough for close to 40 years to know that if he was grumpy about and was unhappy with the way things were going, heâ€™d probably wouldnâ€™t have told me.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
In a recent interview with Variety, Anthony Mackie described The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as a six-to-eight hour Marvel movie.
Weâ€™re shooting it exactly like a movie. Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, â€˜Iâ€™ve never worked on a TV show like this.â€™ The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie. It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work. And so the stunt stuff â€” everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it â€” they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, weâ€™ll be going back soon.
