Real Steel 2011

Real Steel is an upcoming 2011 American science fiction film starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Shawn Levy. The film is based on the 1956 short story “Steel” by Richard Matheson, though Levy replaced the story’s dystopian setting with U.S. state fairs and other “old-fashioned” Americana settings. Real Steel was in development for several years before production began in June of 2010.

Plot: Robots have replaced humans in boxing. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) loses a chance to become a boxing champion when robots take over, and he becomes a small-time promoter. When he has difficulty making a living, he reluctantly teams up with his son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build a robot that can contend for the championship.
