Are they going to keep the white man in blackface (well, Indianface, but hardly any difference in the racism stakes)?
s an Indian I should find Fisher Stevens as Benjamin offensive but I love it. More|

| RE: A Bionic Bot?|
| After Wall E this was pretty inevitalbe wasn't it? I mean I remember the first thing that popped in my head when seeing the Wall E trailer was...Johnny 5.
But for those of us who loved Short Circuit as kids it won't compare.
And of course it won't have the legends that are Los Locos.
Los Locos kick your ass!
Los Locos kick your face!
Los Locos kick your balls into outer space!

| A Bionic Bot?|
| Well, who wouldn't want a bionic bot? Me actually, but if that's what Dan Milano wants he's perfectly entitled to one. I prefer mine au naturel. very compact and not resembling a portable shelving system.
Must admit I'm slightly amused and cannot wait to see a few of the remakes/reimaginings due in the next year or so. Only so I can laugh (cringe!) at them and point out how very bad they are. More|

|Here we go again!|
|Yet another remake. O dear. What is the deal with remaking films? Short Circuit and Tron, a Buffy film (that has no connections to the series). BORING!!! Have an original idea or get out of filmmaking. Please! Do us all a favour. More|

|unoriginalness is Hollywood|
|Who wants these remakes except for the 'money makers'? Because i don't think i've seen a single commetn from a film fan that says anything positive about the 'remakeorama' that is going on. Just leave the classics alone and come up with your own ideas guys, if you can't then quit! More|

|I loved both films as a kid and always wished for a third film. Why can't they just make it a sequel? More|

| Meh, can't be any worse than SS2 was (mint you, as a kid I loved the bit where J5 pimped himself up in the radio shack).
Only suggestion I'd make is that it would be nice if they didn't use CGI More|

|No! Leave it alone!
If they make Johnny 5 into a CGI character, I will get even angrier than I am now! More|

|"We think of Wall-E as an extended trailer for our film, because it's the same face,"
What a penis! As if this big bag o' crap is gonna come anywhere the genius of Wall-e.
As for the remake, at least they're remaking something which was pretty poor in the first place rather than a bona fide classic. More|

| RE: Short Circuit Remake Gets A Writer|
| I don't mind remakes as such, I just wish they would remake films that need remaking; films that didn't live up to the promise of the concept (although to be honest Short Circuit isn't that great, I should have put this in the Total Recall remake thread)
It worked with Oceans 11, The Fly, The Thing etc.
I think I Am Legend is ripe for a remake. Will Smith can reprise his role and it can still be Manhatten set, they just need to keep the ending from the book and have the infected playe More|

|That's it I've reached the end of my fucking tether, I'm not going to look at any more film websites because I am sick to death of seeing yet another announcement of some sub-standard remake every fucking time I look at a film site. For christ's sake, I just completely despair with the utter lack of originality and creativity in Hollywood these days.
Fuck it, what's the point? I can rant here all I want, it's not going to change anything. Mass boycott of all remakes anyone? More|

|Putting aside my hatred of this project for one second, how bloody insulting is that last comment!? "we think of Wall-E as an extended trailer for our OWN film"? EXTENDED TRAILER? There were people working on that film for years! What an un-necessary kick in the balls! Of course there are some simularities between the two designs, but Wall-E was a magical film that deserved much higher recognition that it recieved, and is Pixar's best so far in my opinion. Extended trailer... !@#!!*?#! More|

|Big mistake given the sucess of Wall-e.
Anyone who hasn't seen the original will think it's a sub-par Wall-e ripoff, and those who have will be thinking, why?

|It's not that much of a classic that it can't be remade I think it's a good idea as long as it's done properly. Sounds like they are heading in the right direction though!!! I hear they're remaking Flight of the Navigator too!!! Does Hollywood not have any new ideas?? What will be next from my childhood to be remade?? Temple of Doom?? Stand By Me??? More|

|I LOVED short circuit as a kid, johnny 5 was my hero, so i'm not totally sure about a remake... from the sound of it though, it might be quite different from the original, a film in its own right. guess we'll have to wait and see! More|

|putting aside the atrocity that is a remake of Short Circuit, how the hell can that make the film 'edgier'? Is this going to be like The Dark Knight of Jonny5 or something? More|
