The robot boxy boxing flick “Real Steel” just premiered in the UK and the film’s director Shawn Levy has already been floating ideas for a potential sequel. He tells Bleeding Cool:
“Some of the notions we’re playing with… for instance we went very anthropomorphic in both the design and the movement of the robots in this movie, I think we can really blow that out. The class warfare between underworld and [World Robot Boxing], that’s something that seems rich. The evolution of this father and son’s relationship, and Hugh’s relationship with Evangeline… “
Speaking of directors, “Quantum of Solace” helmer Marc Forster has revealed that he’s continuing with his changes to the film adaptation of author Max Brooks’ “World War Z”. Turning a post zombie apocalypse-set anthology tale into a character driven narrative set during said apocalypse wasn’t enough of a change, now the slow moving Romero-style zombies are going to be replaced by “Dawn of the Dead” style Olympic sprinters.
“I feel like we have a little bit different approach, but it doesn’t exclude that they might not eventually be fashioned how George Romero’s zombies move, it’s just a little bit different approach” Forster told MTV News and claims they’re “trying to keep it in the spirit of the book” despite all the alterations.
