DreamWorks has launched a nationwide casting call for its upcoming action drama Reel Steel.
Director Shawn Levy and his fellow producers are searching for the role of a ten-year-old boy to star opposite Hugh Jackman (pictured).
Real Steel is set in a future where robot boxing is a popular spectator sport. Jackman plays a former boxer who reunites with his long-lost son to train a unique robot for a championship fight. John Gatins wrote the screenplay.
Levy is producing with Don Murphy and Susan Montford, while the executive producers are Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Steve Starkey, Josh McLaglen and Mary McLaglen.
Child actors can make themselves known either by submitting a videotaped audition or attending a series of open calls in Chicago and New York later in the month.
