Shawn Levy will direct the film from a script by John Gatins. Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly and James Rebhorn will also star alongside Kevin Durand, Olga Fonda and Dakota Goyo. The film takes a look at the new sport of robot boxing, which proves to be the chance for a former boxer's comeback when he and his son team up to train a hopeful competitor in the technical wizardry of the sport.
Don Murphy, Susan Montford and Levy will produce the film. A 2011 release is expected.
