They prepare series of Steel Giants in Disney Plus

Ten years after the original tape, a television series by Steel giants it is currently under development.

In the 2011 movie we met Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) a former boxer who, with the support of his son, decides to venture into popular robot fights. And over the course of a decade, what perhaps many fans have waited for is news regarding a sequel. But with the rise of streaming, a show does not seem like a bad idea for Disney to expand that science fiction universe. Excited?

For now, rest assured that the director of the original film will be involved. According to Deadline, Shawn Levy He will command the upcoming show through his company 21 Laps Entertainment. Specifically, he will serve as executive producer, in collaboration with Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Jacqueline Levine, Susan Montford and Don Murphy. At the moment, it is unknown if Levy will also occupy the executive chair.

The series will debut exclusively on Disney Plus. On the other hand, we know nothing about the number of episodes or the plot. Is it a prequel or sequel to Steel giants? Or a spin-off? We will have to wait to find out. Currently the House of the Mouse is looking for the scriptwriter to establish the bases of the project.

The 2011 film was written by John Gatins (The flight), from the story «Steel» by Richard Matheson, released in 1956. It deserved mixed reviews and its box office performance was not optimal: it grossed $ 299 million at the global box office, above its $ 110 million budget. However, his impeccable visual effects earned him an Oscar nomination at the 84th edition of the ceremony. The statuette for Best Visual Effects eventually fell into the hands of The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

As recently as August of last year, Shawn Levy claimed that he and Hugh Jackman were still holding talks around a sequel to Reel Steel (original title of the film).

«We have never stopped feeling love for Reel Steel, and it’s almost as if the volume has increased. Hugh and I were together literally last week talking about it. So I would never say never about that, a sequel to Reel Steel «, Declared the filmmaker (via Screen Rant).

What’s more, Levy wouldn’t rule out reuniting Jackman with Ryan Reynolds —Who recently directed in Free Guy– in that possible continuation.

I’m a friend of Hugh’s. I’m friends with Ryan. I will put them together. Whether in Steel giants or in another movie. I’m directing those two amazing guys and dear friends in a movie together. “

The series of Steel giants does not yet have a release date.
