Dan Milano to Write Short Circuit

ON

Dimension Films has hired Dan Milano to write the script for the Short Circuit remake.

The 1986 original was about 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, who aside from writing and providing voices for the Adult Swim cartoon “Robot Chicken” and co-creating and playing the title character in “Greg the Bunny,” figures to bring a subversive edge to the original film scripted by S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock.

“We’re bringing Number 5 into the 21st Century and taking advantage of the improvements in robotics that are so massive that robots are now performing heart surgeries in hospitals,” producer David Foster said and added that the robot’s visual look won’t change.
