Jackman would play an ex-fighter who turns to promoting and stumbles across a discarded robot that somehow always seems to win. Throw in a subplot that involves the 13-year-old son our hero never knew, and we've got the recipe for a robot flick that won't involve Michael Bay in any way, shape or form. Nice. Based on a Richard Matheson short story (which appeared as an original Twilight Zone episode called "Steel"), Dan Gilroy, Les Bohem and John Gatins have worked on the script.
What do you think of the idea? Anyone familiar with that old Twilight Zone episode? Will this work as a film?
