It’s too bad. Daniel Day-Lewis and Ewan McGregor were attached to play blocky trees.
Maybe John C. Reilly could play Peter Pan.
Minecraft will just be the latest gruel in the unsweetened oatmeal that is Shawn Levy’s film resume. In other words, a huge hit.
Director: Shawn LevyCast: Hugh Jackman, Dakota GoyoSynopsis: A boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle.
See what makes them tick.
Ben Stiller would be putting on his “overwhelmed everyman” hat on for this one, returning his “comically over-the-top bad guy” hat to the closet.
He’s really just a fool for love, people.
Which director will Disney set sail with? Hey, that pun kinda works with the visual themes of the movie. Great.
Almost as fun as playing Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots alone by yourself in the dark.
Fox and producer Shawn Levy are looking to make a no good, very bad adaptation.
Shawn Levy wants to keep the ‘Real Steel’ magic alive.
Cause without these sleazy movie execs, you’d be watching ‘Thor’ on YouTube.
I totally know where they’re coming from; I’m a real buff for historical works about World War IV.
‘Real Steel 2: Reel Steal’?
But what will they shoot it on is the question.
Fox is going to transform the ‘Mr. Men’ series of children’s books into an animated feature film, directed by Shawn Levy. No need to panic – I already hit the “Ruining My Childhood” button.
Fox is going to make an action-adventure movie that will be written by Carlton Cuse, will star Hugh Jackman, and will be directed by Shawn Levy.
Shawn Levy wants you to take a look at his “Family Album,” just for a minute.
Of course, the most important part of the film will be blood gushing sound effects every six minutes, but I suppose plot and dialogue can’t hurt.
If you haven’t yet had your fill of robots kicking each other’s asses in movies then this Real Steel trailer is going to make you go cuckoo bananas.
Shawn Levy has just brought LARPing to a whole 'nother level. Paramount has announced that the Night At The Museum director will bring an adaptation of Spike TV's "Deadliest Warrior" to the big screen. The format of the show pits fighters throughout history against one another in a hypothetical battle to the death. Experts then gather information to determine who would be the likely victor. The plotline for the film is being kept under wraps for the moment, so sadly we won't learn what circumstances will bring an Apache and a Spetsnaz into the arena together at this time.
Our condolences to the directors who missed out on this project. Peter Berg must be beside himself. (Cinema Blend)
Filming began yesterday on Hugh Jackman's robo-pugilism adventure Real Steel and we have the first set photos courtesy of USA Today. In the film, Jackman plays a washed up boxer who, along with his son, promotes and coaches a robotic fighter to win a boxing championship. We get a good glimpse at the robot, Noisy Boy, in the first pic and note that this is not a CG character. That's an honest-to-goodness robot pictured with Jackman. Sure, there is always the danger that it might go haywire and attack the crew, but it's still far safer than working with "Rampage" Jackson. Once his cold eyes are upon you, you're already dry-humped. You just don't know it yet.CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP…
Dakota is sacrificed to Hollywood.Dreamworks has been searching for some bright-eyed, innocent young person to fill the role of Hugh Jackman's son in Real Steel, and rascal Dakota Goyo emerged "victorious." He's not to be confused with Dakota Fanning, the states of North and South Dakota, or the Dakota Reach-Around, this thing that Wookie does. From THR:DreamWorks, making its first movie under its deal with Disney, issued a public casting call in early February. It also conducted open auditions in Chicago and New York, looking for someone to play a "street-smart, tough, charming kid with a hard, untrusting outer shell which hides a warm enthusiastic spirit beneath."And they had to go to Canada to find him. What, there aren't enough punkass little sh*ts in America to fit your desired Jackman spawn? Gimme five days and I'll give any kid you pick an untrusting outer shell. …The warm, enthusiastic spirit underneath I cannot guarantee.
The grizzly-run media's ploy to lull children into a false sense of security in the presence of bears has advanced a giant leap this morning with the announcement that The Berenstain Bears will be updated for the big screen. USA Today reports that Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy plans to produce a part live action, part CGI feature film based off the characters made popular in the books by Jan and Stan Berenstain. "I'd like the film to be un-ironic about its family connections but have a wry comedic sensibility that isn't oblivious to the fact that they're bears," says Levy in a statement that made me need to open up my dictionary. "The comedy comes from this bear family coexisting in a more recognizably real world." This is how it starts, people. One day your children are giggling at the anthropomorphic bears on-screen as they participate in the father-son sack race, the next they're climbing into a windowless van with Pedobear.
