Shawn Levy Plots ‘Real Steel’ Sequel

6923822.jpgDisney’s robot-boxing movie Real Steel has yet to come out, but that hasn’t stopped directory Shawn Levy from plotting a sequel. He recently laid out his plans for Realer Steel (working title) to the folks at Bleeding Cool:

“Some of the notions we’re playing with … for instance we went very anthropomorphic in both the design and the movement of the robots in this movie, I think we can really blow that out. The class warfare between underworld and WRB [short for World Robot Boxing], that’s something that seems rich. The evolution of this father and son’s relationship, and Hugh’s [Jackman] relationship with Evangeline [Lilly] …”

As eager as Levy is, he’ll likely have to wait until first-weekend box-office results come in before sequel discussions commence. Real Steel opens everywhere October 7, 2011.
