DreamWorks seem to be very confident about the success of the upcoming movie, Real Steel. That's why the studio has ordered for the process of a sequel even before the release of the first movie. According to sources, the untitled sequel is just getting underway and the producers are said to be in talks with Hugh Jackman for a new deal.

Real Steel is sci-fi film, which is based on the 1956 short story Steel by Richard Matheson. The movie is set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. Hugh Jackman is playing Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter, who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound steel robots took over the ring.

Directed by Shawn Levy, Real Steel is scheduled to be released on October 7 in 2011. It has received a strong response during the screening at CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas. Now, Real Steel sequel is just getting underway and this move of the production house relies on the first few screen tests.
