Johnny 5 alive! New writer hired for Short Circuit remake

02.03.2012
80s nostalgia hounds, don't get too angry now. Dimension's upcoming SHORT CIRCUIT remake is alive and assembling as we speak, with the hiring of writer Matt Lieberman (DR. DOLITTLE: TAIL TO THE CHIEF) being the latest development.

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.
