Real Steel." A movie set in the future that see's Jackman become a boxing coach for a nearly junked robot. Sound interesting? Take a look at the full breakdown along with two behind the scenes stills after the jump...
"Real Steel" is set 10 years into the future and sees human boxing outlawed and Jackman's character, a former boxer, becoming a promoter/coach for an once power house boxing robot named Atom. The film will also focus on a father and son redeveloping their relationship while coaching/working on Atom. Jackman's character left the child at birth and after his mother dies, he is left to raise his son. Playing Hugh Jackman's son is 10 year-old actor Dakota Goyo (Defendor). Jackman tells USA Today a little bit about the relationship the father and son will have. He said, "We have a lot of distance to make up. It's through this mutual interest in robot boxing that they find a way to come together and form a bond."
I have to admit that "Real Steel" has some of the right concept that get me excited. The movie sounds a lot like a futuristic version of The Champ, a film I will still watch from time to time (not mention shed a few tears). Director Shawn Levy likened the movie to how men bond. He said, "Guys bond through activities. Men, and fathers and sons, find connections through doing projects."
Real Steel" as production develops.
