Johnny 5 alive! New writer hired for Short Circuit remake
Lieberman, an alumni of the Disney writers program and an uncredited scribe on a handful of recent live-action Disney films, joins HOP and ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS director Tim Hill in this re-imagining of the popular 80s film. Do you see now why Johnny 5 over here is looking pissed?
Story details are non-existent at the moment, like that really matters. Dimension and the Weinsteins are looking to turn SHORT CIRCUIT into a new family-friendly franchise, so expect the same tired old formula yet again. Blah.
SHORT CIRCUIT is scheduled to start shooting at the end of the year with a release sometime next summer.
