Short Circuit remake on horizon
04.04.08 by REELZ
If there is anything I am not nostaglic for from the '80s, it may very well be the movie Short Circuit. Unfortunately for me, though, Number 5 may rise again.
According to Variety, Dimension Films is acquiring the rights to Short Circuit in plans to do a remake for its slate of family films. For those blissfully able to forget, Short Circuit is about a military robot (named 'Number 5') who develops a personality after being struck by lightning and decides it doesn't like being a weapon.
The original screenwriters, S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock, have been hired for the rewrite.
