Variety reported that Steve Carr is set to direct the reboot of Short Circuit, the lovable robot from the mid to late 80's. Carr directed the surprise hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop last year.
The news kind of cements what I had thought; they're going for the foo-foo family stuff with this reboot. Which is okay I suppose, I would have liked to have seen something a little different from the original, hence it being called a reboot, not a sequel. Oh well, it is what it is, and we'll give you more news as it comes up.
