Hollywood star Hugh Jackman has signed up to fight robots in a new Steven Spielberg movie.
The 41-year-old is to star in Spielberg's new sci-fi Real Steel, which tells the story of a futuristic boxing industry where robots take over from real fighters, reports imdb.com.
The big budget blockbuster is the first project for the filmmaker's DreamWorks Studio since the legendary director cut ties with Paramount Pictures and secured independent financial backing for his company.
