Real Steel is a forthcoming film starring Hugh Jackman and Evangeline ‘Lost’ Lilly and is based on Richard Matheson’s short story ‘Steel’.
The film is set in a near future world where boxing matches between humans have been outlawed and now custom built robots do the fighting. Imagine a cross between Robot Wars, Terminator and UFC and you could be along the right lines.
Jackman plays a down-on-his luck Robot Boxing promoter who discovers a discarded robot that always seems to win and ‘trains’ the robot.
The story has previously been adapted for the classic TV series ‘The Twighlight Zone’ and soon it’s your turn at robo-boxing as the game of the film has just been unofficially announced by the producer of the film, Don Murphy.
