Short Circuit is the latest old school movie to get a remake! The 1986 cult classic earned its place in our hearts. Who doesn’t love a robot with real feelings?? And now, over 20 years later, it’s getting a reboot.
Original screenwriters S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock have been hired to write the remake, so that gives us a little bit of hope. They hope to keep the original plot line of the military robot who runs away from the government after developing a conscience and personality after being struck by lightning. Producers say they want to add in a lot of newer technology to the remake, thus probably ruining it all.
What do you think of this remake being done? And while we’re on topic, some other remakes being talked about this week are Total Recall, Valley Girl, and Weird Science!
