Hugh Jackman: Reel Steel Robot Boxing!

Hugh Jackman has robot boxing on his mind. The 40-year-old Aussie actor is set to star in Real Steel, directed by Shawn Levy (The Pink Panther, Night at the Museum).

Via Variety: “Pic is a Rocky-with-robots saga, with Jackman is negotiating to play an ex-fighter who becomes a promoter when human boxing is outlawed for being too violent. The new gladiators are 2000-pound robots with human qualities. The ex-fighter’s access to sub-standard robot parts hampers his hopes for glory in Robot Boxing, until he discovers a discarded robot that always seems to win. The ex-fighter has also discovered he’s the father of a 13-year old son, and they bond as the robot brawls its way toward the top.”

Sounds like a fun flick!

Last night, Hugh and Daniel Craig opened their Broadway play A Steady Rain, which ends its sold-out limited run on December 7.
