We've assumed the project was abandoned, but while director Shawn Levy was at Tiff for the premiere of his promising family dramedy This Is Where I Leave You with Tina Fey and Jason Bateman, he revealed that they've been quietly trying to get the film made. Read on! When asked about Real Steel 2, here's what Levy told ComingSoon: "We have been quietly developing a sequel to 'Real Steel' for three and a half years. We've come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I

Well before Real Steel’s release to surprisingly good reviews, producers were talking about a sequel. Of course, they’ll still have to wait to see how the Hugh Jackman robot boxing flick holds up at the box office before they get the official green light, but last week, while being interviewed at NYC’s 92nd Street Y, director Shawn Levy told the crowd he’d been told to start thinking up the next chapter right in the story after the movie’s first test screening. The lead robot, Atom, and the young boy who plays Jackman’s son in the film, (Source: www.imdb.com)
