Oh man, this could easily be some of the best news I have heard in months. I got an email this morning from my wife letting me know that my favorite movie of all time — “Short Circuit” — is getting picked up by Dimension Films and they are going to remake it! Now, let’s not get crazy — I’m not exactly sure how I feel about a remake. I was honestly looking forward to a third film, a final chapter in the life of the now solid gold Johnny 5 who became an American citizen at the end of the second movie. But never mind that for now, I’m just happy to see your favorite robot and mine returning to the big screen. Oh, and one more thing — let’s not forget what I said about Disney’s Wall-E looking strikingly similar to our good friend Johnny 5. I guess there’s nothing new under the sun.
You can read all about the new movie here.
P.S. If you are looking for further proof of my love for this movie be sure and see my movie list… just look at #1.
