Hope Davis Polishes Some “Real Steel”

Hope Davis has joined the cast of Hugh Jackman-starrer “Real Steel” for DreamWorks Pictures says Variety.

Set in the near future when boxers have been replaced by human-controlled two-ton robots, Jackman portrays a former boxer-turned-manager who reunites with his estranged son to take his fighter to the championships.

Dakota Goyo, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, James Rebhorn, Olga Fonda and Evangeline Lilly also star while John Gatins penned the script.

Shawn Levy will direct and produce alongside Don Murphy and Susan Montford. Shooting kicks off later this month.
