Hollywood continues to remake or "reimagine" everything, and the latest property to fall under its sites is Short Circuit. Yes, the loveable military robot is looking to return to the silverscreen with the help of Dimension Films and Steve Carr.
Short Circuit Remake Coming
Steve Carr, who last direct Paul Blart: Mall Cop, will direct Short Circuit, the remake of the 1986 sci-fi movie. Written by Dan Milano, the remake will serve as a reboot that brings the iconic Johnny 5 into the 21st century. Built by the military to be a highly sophisticated weapon, Johnny 5 develops a conscience and personality after being hit by lightning. He befriends a lonely boy and his fractured family.
Improved special effects might be cool, though I still feel that this is one that should remain a classic; as well as non-PC.
