"Real Steel" Sequel Already in the Works

Posted: April 15th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Real Steel" Sequel Already in the WorksSubmit Comment
DreamWorks will release Hugh Jackman's "Real Steel" on October 7th, but is so confidant in the film that it is already planning to turn it into a franchise.

Deadline is reporting that the studio is moving forward with a sequel and has recently hired "Real Steel" writer John Gatins to pen the script. According to early screen tests, the first film is performing very well and has signs of becoming a big hit.

"Real Steel" is based on a short story by Richard Matheson and revolves around a prize fighter (Jackman) whose skills are rendered obsolete when human boxers are replaced by robots. The fighter becomes a boxing promoter and finds a discarded robot that wins and wins. The fighter also discovers he has a 13-year old son, who comes along for the ride as the robot heads toward the top against scary competition.

Robot boxers. Ok. Because that show on that cable channel with the robot vehicles chopping each other up was such a huge hit.

Who the f*ck would ever pay to see two non-bleeding, non-sweating non-human things fight each other, and why, when the game is rigged by using stronger materials, thicker materials, better materials, and more energy?

I mean, you can always build a machine to win, but it takes far, far more to customize a man into a champion. Where's the f*cking challenge? And where's the battle of wills, the testmant to the strength and endurance of the human spirit?

Just give me Rocky 4, because that has two living, breathing miracles of mechanics waylaying one another in ways no f*cking machine could ever replicate.

'...and finds a discarded robot that wins and wins.' --- if the robot 'won and won'... why was it ever discarded?! And if it only began winning after Jackman jacked him up... we're to believe the robot values the worth of it's 2nd. chance at life and now gives a sh*t?

f*ck off.

If they are so confident, why release it in October? They are just trying to jum-start positive buzz, because they know they got a stinker on their hands.
