Real Steel is an upcoming 2011 action drama film inspired by Richard Matheson's short story "Steel". The story was first adapted for television by Matheson as an episode of The Twilight Zone. The film stars Hugh Jackman and is directed by Shawn Levy.[1]



Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.[2]





Filming began in June 2010 in Detroit, Michigan, Mason, Michigan, Leslie, Michigan and Grosse Ile, Michigan. The robot boxing action is being filmed with motion capture technology. Former world welterweight champion Sugar Ray Leonard is serving as an adviser for the boxing sequences. 19 animatronic robots have been constructed for the non-boxing scenes.[3]
