Hugh Jackman Confirmed to Star in Shawn Levy’s REAL STEEL

     November 23, 2009


We already kind of knew this, but Variety is now confirming that Hugh Jackman will in fact star in director Shawn Levy’s (Night at the Museum) robot boxing movie, Real Steel.  Jackman will star as a boxer who becomes a struggling robo-boxing promoter after human fighting is deemed too violent.  Since this is a Shawn Levy we are talking about, there is also going to be this whole subplot going on about him reconnecting with a 13 year old son he never knew he had.  Matt sums up my thoughts on this one perfectly when he says “Why are talented actors working with Shawn Levy?”
