Remaking Garbage: Short Circuit to get the Children's Treatment

They are going to be remaking (or as they are calling it...rebooting) Short Circuit. Remember that horrible movie about a really fug robot named Johnny Five? It also starred 80's fame Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy, Cocoon)...what the heck has he been up to lately? He's alive right?

The terrible news doesn't end there. Not only are they remaking this monstrosity, but it will be made as a kids movie by the same dude who directed Garfield, Hop and Alvin and the Chipmunks, and wrote Sponge Bob Square Pants, Tim Hill. I shudder at the thought. All those movies/shows sucked...actually I haven't seen Hop, but I am assuming based on the knowledge I have, that it deserves this classification.

How many screen writers are sitting at home holding perfectly good original work who now want to go off themselves in embarrassment at their industry. I would so be there...if I wrote movies.

Hollywood, you are lazy. I want to punch you in the throat.
