A source of mine now told me that Jonathan Mostow has been pointed out as being the new director for an unknown movie called Real Steel! According to the rumor talks have also started to bring in writer Jeremy Leven (writer and screenwriter of movies like Don Juan DeMarco and Crazy as Hell), to be part of the team as story editor. The story in Real Steel is supposed to be about 2,000 pound robots that that battle each other in a boxing competition.
However the movie is produced by Don Murphy's Angry Films and distribution is done by Dreamworks SKG. According to my source, this is no co-incidence. According to him Real Steel is actually a fake name for what is actually the Transformers movie!
There are no basis to believe this is in fact true. If Real Steel is in fact a real movie to be made, this is all just a co-incidence. But I do have to admit that Don Murphy, Dreamworks and a story about 2,000 pound robots fighting each other are alot of facts to not take this rumor under serious consideration.
