Ally Sheedy stars as Stephanie
Go behind the scenes and learn what went on during the making of the 1986 Sci-Fi movie starring Ally Sheedy, Steve Guttenberg, Fisher Stevens et al.
This film was originally conceived as a dark high-tech thriller. Number 5 was originally intended to be the villain of the picture: a heavily-armed military robot that had escaped from the lab that had developed him. After several script revisions, the darker elements were toned down and the film became a high-tech comedy.
The robots are very similar to the large fighting machines in the future battle scenes in "The Terminator", which is maybe not suprising as Number 5 was designed by acclaimed futurist/concept artist Syd Mead, who also worked on "Alien" and "Blade Runner".
It took 5 weeks to make each robot used; 20 robots were used in all.

Fisher Stevens adopted a dark tan and an accent to play his character who was of Indian descent! Fisher is the only original character from the original to return for the sequel. In the late 90's he rose back to fame (and is more recognizable!) as Chuck Fishman on the CBS drama "Early Edition".
Previous drafts had Stephanie Speck as an enviromentalist type and was an even bigger animal lover compared to the final cut.
