‘Real Steel’ Adaptation Series Currently in the Works at Disney+


Shawn Levy is continuing the Real Steel story.


Deadline reports that Disney+ is developing a series based on the 2011 movie that starred Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Anthony Mackie.


The film, directed by Levy, followed a boxer and father, played by Jackman, and son, played by Dakota Goyo, as they reconcile years of distance and discover an obsolete junkyard sparring robot who just might be more than it seems.



The series comes from Disney Branded Television and is produced by 20th Television in association with Levy’s 21 Laps, for its sister streamer.


The platform is currently searching for a writer for the series, which is exec produced by Levy, Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Jacqueline Levine, Susan Montford and Don Murphy.


The film was based on Richard Matheson’s 1956 short story Steel.
