"Short Circuit" to be Remade by "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" Director! 


Steve Carr, the director who gave us the Kevin James hit "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" has been hired by Dimension films to remake the 1986 sci-fi film, "Short Circuit."

They're calling this a robot reboot and will bing Johnny 5 into the 21st century. If you remember, the film is about Number 5, one of a group of experimental military robots, who develops self-awareness after being struck by lightning.

The remake's script is written by Dan Milano from "Robot Chicken."

The original 1986 "Short Circuit" film starring Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg was cute, but the one that I remember the most was El Debarge's hit song "Who's Johnny." Do you remember this video?
