Hope Davis, who is starring as Hillary Rodham Clinton in the recently released HBO feature "The Special Relationship," has joined Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand and Anthony Mackie in DreamWork's sci-fi action feature "Real Steel". James Rebhorn ("Independence Day," "Scent of a Woman") and Olga Fonda "Love Hurts" also joined the cast.

Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum - 1 and 2," "Date Night") will direct the actioner from the script written by John Gatins.

Set in the near future, story is about the popular sport of robot boxing, and revolves around a former boxer (Jackman) who gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams with his long-lost son (Goyo)to train a discarded robot boxer into a perfect contender for the high-tech sport.

Levy is co-producing the feature alongside Don Murphy, Susan Montford. Shooting is scheduled to begin later this month.

  1. I am not a huge fan of Davis. All I want that Real Steel to be a good movie. I really like the topic on which movie is based that is robot boxing. This is an action movie and like action movies a lot.This must be an interesting movie.Shawn Levy already created success with previous movies.
