Fisher Stevens

I've Been Contacted for

'SHORT CIRCUIT' REMAKE

The rumors are true ... Number 5 is still alive!!! A remake of the classic 80s robot film "Short Circuit" is actively in development -- so says the actor who played the brownfaced, ambiguously Indian character Ben Jabituya ... and he tells TMZ, he might be back for more.

Fisher Stevens tells us, he's been in touch with producers about reprising his role in the remake ... but no decisions have been made yet.

It's pretty crazy considering the film has taken a lot of heat for Stevens' character, even though the guy had some classic lines ... so we gotta ask ...

Fisher is one of my favorite audiobook voice actors. He was amazing in "A Dirty Job"

Seriously! Total Recall, Karate Kid, Conan, True Grit, Star Wars episodes I-III. Then of course you the remakes of Robocop, TMNT and apparently this in the works. F### me! Hey Hollywood go back to smoking way too much pot and snorting way too much coke and give the masses something original.
