Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) is set to direct Real Steel, a DreamWorks film about a father and son who take a robot to the Bot Boxing Championship, Variety reported:

The film is set in the near future, where combatants control human-like 2,000-pound robots that battle in the ring. John Gatins turned in the most recent script draft.
