Key & Peele have released this hilarious sketch about how Gremlins 2: The New Batch ended up being developed.
Director Joe Dante saw this sketch and tweeted:
“This is EXACTLY how it happened!”
Dante originally turned down the offer to direct the sequel because it was so hard for him to make the first one. When the studio offered him a bigger budget and free license to do whatever he wanted with the film, he decided to take the gig. He said the movie “was essentially about how there didn’t need to be a sequel to Gremlins.”
If you didn’t watch the Gremlins 2 yet then you should and if you have seen you will laugh your ass off.
