Hugh Jackman to Star in Sci-Fi "Real Steel" 


Hugh Jackman is set to star in "Real Steel," a robot meets boxing sci-fi tale based on a short story by Richard Matheson.

Variety told us that "story centers on a fighter who has to reinvent himself when human boxers are replaced by robots. Jackman will play a struggling Robot Boxing promoter who finds a discarded robot that always seems to win. He also discovers he has a 11-year-old son, and they bond as the robot brawls its way toward the top."

"Real Steel" is from the creative minds of Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks. This will be the company's first project since securing $825 million in financing for the reconstituted DreamWorks.

Dan Gilroy wrote the original script and John Gatins penned the most recent draft. Shawn Levy is set to direct.

Production on this robots sports film is set to start in June.

Tommy Lee Jones Says Goodbye to Matthew McConaughey and "The Lincoln Lawyer!" 


Tommy Lee Jones was supposed to direct and co-star with Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer," but he has left production of the adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel.

The reason? Chalk it up to the good, old "creative difference" excuse.

Apparently, Jones and Lakeshore Entertainment disagreed over the script written by John Romano.

Lakeshore is reportedly looking for another director to begin production next spring.

Meanwhile, Jones is in post-production on HBO's "The Sunset Limited" based on a Cormac McCarthy play that Jones directed. Variety is also saying Jones is readying an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's "Islands in the Stream." On the bigscreen, Jones most recently wrapped the John Wells-directed "The Company Men" with Ben Affleck and Kevin Costner.
