Spyglass’ production prexy Peter Oillataguerre and production veep Chris Stone will oversee the project.

The original 1986 film was directed by John Badham and starred Ally Sheedy, Steve Guttenberg and Fisher Stevens. It follows Number 5, one of a group of experimental military robots, who undergoes a sudden transformation after being struck by lightning.

The robot develops self-awareness, consciousness, and a fear of the reprogramming that awaits him back at the factory. With the help of a young woman, Number 5 tries to evade capture and convince his creator that he has truly become alive.
