Fisher Stevens Claims He May Reprise Role in Short Circuit Remake

Posted by Karen Benardello On July - 20 - 2013 0 Comment

Fisher Stevens has revealed that he may star in the upcoming remake of the 1986 family sci-fi comedy, ‘Short Circuit,’ TMZ is reporting. The actor played the Indian character of Ben Jabituya in the original film, which was helmed by John Badham and starred Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg. Ben helped Guttenberg’s character, Newton Crosby, invent the robot Johnny 5.

Stevens, who also appeared in 1988′s ‘Short Circuit 2,’ told TMZ that he has been speaking with the producers of the remake to make an appearance in the new film. “I wish them luck and if they ask me to be in it, we’ll see what happens,” the actor said.

Tim Hill, who has signed on to direct the ‘Short Circuit’ remake, has said he’ll be moving away from the “cute” look of the Johnny 5 from the previous films. “I’m tempted to go back and grab the original,” he said. “But I think it has to be closer to what modern design actually is.” The filmmaker has not yet announced a production start date for the remake.
