Los Angeles - The new Gremlins movie won't be a reboot or a remake.

The much-discussed new film has been years in the making and Gremlins star Zach Galligan has revealed there was "a decent chance" he'd appear in the movie.

He said: "It's not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form."

The 51-year-old American said the original film's writer Chris Columbus will not allow the new movie to be a remake.

He explained: "Chris Columbus has come out and said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade.

"So the only thing they will be, and apparently are going to be doing, is something along the lines of like Jurassic World, where it will be 30 years later."

He said too, that the new movie would refer to events in the first film, which was released in 1984.

Zach shared: "I swear on my life, I don't know if I'm in it or not, but I think there is probably a decent chance since I'm one of the few people left standing from the first movie.

"Hopefully they won't use too much CGI, or the CGI will be really good like the Planet of the Apes movies, and hopefully we'll have some practical effects too."
