According to Deadline, Spyglass Media Group is developing a remake of “ A Robot in Short Circuit, ” a classic action comedy movie directed by Kenneth Johnson in 1986.
For those who don’t remember, the plot revolves around the goofy Johnny 5, an experimental robot created by the military and who ends up gaining in almost human intelligence after being struck by lightning.
It has been said that the new film will have a more focused look at Latins rather than Americans, and the screenplay will be written by Mexican Eduardo Cisneros in partnership with Jason Shuman, the two writers of the upcoming “ Half-Brothers ”. .
Project X Entertainment will also be part of the project and will star James Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak as producers.
John W. Hyde, executive producer of the original, will return to the post via Rehab Entertainment.
As of yet, further details have not been revealed, so there is no information on the plot, cast, and potential director candidates.
As the project is in its early stages, updates are expected to be released in the coming months.
