Real Steel, on the other hand? Sign of the End Times.


They optioned Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em ROBOTS.

Fear for the Republic.

    They optioned Battleship and Risk as too.

    Oh come on Moe. You telling me you hate Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots? This actually looks like a fun mindless movie.
    @matt: I am looking forward to the Risk movie. Love Risk. Battleship could also be a fun movie, if they do it right.

  • jimf says:

    the original short story predates Rock Em Sock Em Robots …

  • BigGator5 says:

    @Moe: Then what’s the problem with making a movie based off the game? And jimf is right, Real Steel is based off the short story “Steel” by Richard Matheson.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      BG5: Because the track record of games turned into movies, well, sucks.

      But if it’s actually based on a Matheson story then that’s COMPLETELY different. Matheson writes great stuff (and, dammit, they should have kept the original ending to the latest I Am Legend).
