Disney+ is developing a TV series based on Shawn Levy’s 2011 film “Real Steel” starring Hugh Jackman.
The family sci-fi action/drama saw Jackman play a struggling ex-boxer who reconciles with his son after years of distance and discover an obsolete junkyard sparring robot who just might be more than it seems and their ticket to the world of robot boxing.
The series is in early stages of development at 20th Television with a search for writers now happening. Executive producers include Shawn Levy, Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Jacqueline Levine, Susan Montford and Don Murphy.
The original film earned more than $300 million at the worldwide box-office.
