In spite of the fact that it won’t debut for another nine months, 20th Century Fox is apparently quite pleased with the Real Steel actor/director pairing of Hugh Jackman and Shawn Levy (Date Night). Today, the studio announced that the two will reunite on an as-of-yet untitled action/adventure project. While low on details (the project was picked up as a pitch), Deadline reports that the film will be penned by former Lost writer/show runner Carlton Cuse and that Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment moniker will also produce.
Jackman and Levy’s upcoming film, Real Steel, is currently set to open later this year on October 7th. In addition to Jackman, the film also stars Hope Davis, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, and Anthony Mackie. Real Steel is set in a near-future in which robots that literally weigh one ton (and yet still resemble humans) duke it out.
