Hugh Jackman Starts Real Steel Shoot

Real Steel commenced shooting in Michigan with Hugh Jackman starring in robot fighter father and son tale.

In “Real Steel,” Jackman plays an out-of-work fighter who, with his estranged son, grooms a junkyard robot boxer as a contender in the new, no-humans-allowed league. The film will use motion-capture animation for the robot-on-robot brawling action, but in live-action scenes — which started shooting Monday — the human actors get to interact with 19 real-life animatronic creations. Directed by Shawn Levy from Executive Producer Steven Spielberg.

I would love to have the opportunity to become an extra when this film actually starts the production phase.
