First Look at Hugh Jackman in Real Steel
Hugh Jackman is set to play the lead character in the film, which is the Rocky-esque tale of a fighter who has to reinvent himself when human boxing becomes obsolete, replaced by 2000 pound human-like robots. He will play the ex-fighter, who becomes a Robot Boxing promoter, but whose chances of success are hampered by his access to sub-standard robot parts. That is until he discovers a discarded robot named Atom that always seems to win. The ex-fighter has also discovered he's the father of a 13-year old son Max, and they bond as the robot brawls its way toward the top.
