Hugh Jackman to Star in Futuristic Family Film, The Real Steel

Hugh Jackman Is the Real Steel Deal

Hugh Jackman is no stranger to a little heavy metal after spending so much time in Wolverine's claws, but he'll be all man in his next project. Jackman is in talks to star in Real Steel, an upcoming family film from Dreamworks set in the future. The movie follows a father and son duo who work to get a boxer back into fighting shape. Here's the kicker: their fighter is participating in an illegal human vs. robot boxing tournament.

You'd think jacked-up Jackman would play the boxer, but he's actually circling the role of the father. Steven Spielberg will be executive producing the project. This movie sounds like it could be fun, though I have to admit that I prefer my robots to be on the cute side rather than the badass side.
