Is Real Steel 2 movie coming out?

As of today, August 20, 2023, there is no confirmed release date for Real Steel 2. The film was announced in 2018, with Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly set to reprise their roles. However, the project has been in development hell ever since, with no updates on its progress.

In 2020, director Shawn Levy said that he was still working on the script for Real Steel 2, but that it was still a long way off. He said that he wanted to make sure that the sequel was "as good as the first one, if not better."

In 2021, Jackman said that he was still interested in making Real Steel 2, but that it would have to be the right script. He said that he didn't want to make a sequel just for the sake of it.

So, while there is still hope for Real Steel 2, it is not clear when or if it will ever be made. The film's stars are still interested in making it, but the script is not yet finished. Only time will tell if the sequel will ever come to fruition.
