Gremlins 3

In a recent interview with Syfy, Zach Galligan stated Netflix’s upcoming animated series, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, is a “stepping stone” for a third Gremlins movie.

It seems like what they’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 they’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 it’s really not that much of a stretch to think that that’s what they’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, that’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, he’d probably wouldn’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.

We’re shooting it exactly like a movie. Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’ 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 — everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it — they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon.

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.

I’ve been hearing that commentary about some of these “prestige” streaming series. They’re basically movie concepts stretched in to a season of TV as opposed to edited down to a 90-120 minute feature.

And each one is such that you could just end on that note, or come back with another season/mega-movie if you were so inclined.
