Anthony Mackie and Evangeline Lilly Join REAL STEEL Starring Hugh Jackman

     May 12, 2010

Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) and Evangeline Lilly (Lost) have joined the cast of Shawn Levy’s robot-boxing drama Real Steel.  The film centers on a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) who reunites with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to train a robot for the robot boxing championship once the world decides that it finds fighting more entertaining when done by robots instead of humans.  Presumably, the film takes place in an alternate reality where BattleBots was the most successful show of all-time.

According to Variety, Mackie will play a boxing promoter while Lilly will play a friend of Jackman’s character.  Shooting is set to begin this June and the film has penciled in November 18, 2011 as its release date.
