Milano Pens “Short Circuit” Remake

Dan Milano (“Greg the Bunny,” “Robot Chicken”) is set to script a remake of the 1986 family classic “Short Circuit” for Dimension Films says Variety.

The original followed an armed robot that acquired a personality after a lightning strike, and sought the help of humans to prevent its destruction by its makers in the military.

Milano plans to contemporize the story and bring a subversive edge to the original film scripted by S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock. David Foster, Ryan E. Heppe and John Hyde will produce.
