Shawn Levy to Direct Futuristic Robot Boxing Movie

Posted: September 16th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Shawn Levy to Direct Futuristic Robot Boxing MovieSubmit Comment
Director Peter Berg, who had been talking with DreamWorks about taking on the studio's futuristic robot boxing movie "Real Steel," has moved on, opening up the gig to Shawn Levy.

Levy is known for directing comedies such as the two "Night at the Museum" movies, but the "Steel" story line takes place in a near future where human boxing has been outlawed, and heavy, humanoid robots slug it out in the ring instead. Into this world step a father and his estranged teenage son, who train an extraordinary fighter.

Levy's participation could mean a change in tone for the adventure project and/or a stretching of the creative muscles for the director, who has signed on with DreamWorks to take a swing at it.

"I'm thrilled to be working with Shawn on this project," DreamWorks CEO and co-chair Stacey Snider said. "He's a master of combining heart and human stories with fantastic visuals. I'm sure that in his capable hands, 'Real Steel' will be a film that touches and excites all audiences."

BTW I think Levy could save a bunch of time by just doing a remake of 'Robot Jox'. the movie is gonna f*ckin suck anyway, so why not save all those development costs and time and just starting shooting the stupid f*ckin thing

I like the idea, sounds interesting.

Rock 'em Sock 'em robots are awesome as well. I remember when mine became sentient and killed my little brother. Aaaaaaaah good times.
