The Robo-Revolution Continues…

Or perhaps it’s the Takeover of the Toy Franchises that’s continuing…

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the Wow Wee’s Robosapien remote-controlled robot line is about to be fictionalised on celluloid by writers Avi Arad and Max Botkin. To be directed by Senn McNamara, the film is currently being called Robosapien: Rebooted. The plot goes like this:

Bobby Coleman will play a boy who befriends a robot on the run from malevolent corporate interests

Sounds suspiciously like an unofficial remake of John Badham’s Short Circuit (1986), which is itself being officially remade.

Anyway, Robosapien: Rebooted‘s director Senn McNamara also directed the Bratz movie, in case you find that encouraging.

Here’s some test footage:

By the way, it’s not really test footage. I was joking…
