We were talking Real Steel 2 well before the first film even came out, but now, three years later, we’re still without that sequel. However, that doesn’t mean director Shawn Levy isn’t thinking about it. In fact, he said he’s been “quietly developing” it for years now.
The first film starred Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up boxer who turns to robot boxing to make a living. After his robot is destroyed in a fight, Charlie’s stuck without a contender and with a significant amount of debt, leaving him with no choice, but to try and turn an old sparring bot named Atom into a champion. Hit the jump to find out what Levy had to say about the sequel.
