You know you’re old when remakes of films that came out in the ’80s become a yearly occurrence.

Well, following reboots of childhood favourites like Total Recall, Fright Night, Robocop (due next year), Predator and Halloween, among others, Vulture is now reporting that Warner Bros. is looking to bring back 1984′s Gremlins.

The little monsters also appeared in a 1990 sequel with news of a rumoured third film becoming a myth of Goonies 2 proportions. Steven Spielberg produced the originals and would most likely produce the updated version.

No word on whether original director Joe Dante or stars Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates would return for cameos.

What do you think about Gremlins getting rebooted? Should they do it, or just leave the originals (which were great by the way) alone?

Let us know in the comments.
