Heeeere’s Johnny 5! Short Circuit Remake!
Johnny 5 is alive… again!
Or at least he and Short Circuit are being rebooted courtesy of producer David Foster for Dimension Films alongside Ryan E. Heppe and John Hyde.
Dan Milano, who has worked on Seth Green’s mental stop-motion Robot Chicken series, is down to script the new project which will once again see wacky robot Johnny 5 resurrected.
The 1986 original centred on a nuclear-armed US military robot ‘Johnny 5’ geting hit by lightning and becoming self aware.
According to Variety, Milano is charged with ensuring an edgier remake of the family favourite to include a more subversive edge.
