Tim Hill to Direct Short Circuit Remake


Director Tim Hill has joined the Dimension Films remake of the 1986 film Short Circuit, reports Deadline.

First announced nearly two years ago, the project will feature a script from Dan Milano (“Robot Chicken”) and will retell the story of Johnny 5, an experimental military robot who, after getting struck by lightning, gains sentience.

The reboot was originally going to be helmed by Steve Carr (Paul Blart: Mall Cop), but Hill (Hop, Alvin and the Chipmunks) will be taking his place.
