Short Circuit Movie Reboot Going Ahead...

It's being reported that Dimension Films is now actively looking to reboot the film "Short Circuit" with Tim Hill directing.

'The 1986 film was about an experimental robot called 'Johnny 5' who is manufactured to be a weapon until a lightning strike fills it with intelligence. It runs away and befriends a fractured family, the military in hot pursuit.'

Dimension optioned the remake rights in 2009 but it originally all fell flat until director Hill was brought in to supervise a new script and get the iconic robot Johnny 5 moving.

Used to love Short Circuit 1 and 2, and both movies had endings that used to make me cry like a baby!

"Johnny 5 is ALIVE"!!!
