Real Steel 2 in development, but not likely

There are sad fighting robots everywhere

As a fan and supporter of the first Real Steel I was happy to hear a while back that they were working a sequel. While the movie wasn't perfect it was just enough fun to make it worth your while and I figured that more boxing robots couldn't be a bad thing. Plus the original was so close to Rocky the sequel just had to have a Clubber Lang-like character in it. So three years later where is it? Director Shawn Levy:

“We have been quietly developing a sequel to ‘Real Steel’ for three and a half years. We’ve come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we’ve found both but never at the same time. It’s ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that did very well globally–it did okay domestically–but the love for ‘Real Steel’ remains kind of unique as far as rabid fans who ask me all the time for another one. Hugh and I love that movie so if we can crack it, we’ll make it, but I have this sense that we better make that happen soon or frankly, the audience may not be there in the same way. So we shall see.”

Yea, that doesn't sound overly positive. I'm not sure if unique is a term I'd ever give to the original film so I think they should scrap that idea and instead go for unoriginal, but with fighting robots boxing each other.
