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.
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 ...
