Hugh Jackman is giving an aspiring actor the chance of a lifetime by holding open auditions to star alongside him in Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie "Real Steel". The big budget movie, which tells the story of a futuristic boxing industry where robots take over from real fighters, is the first project for Spielberg's DreamWorks studio since the director cut ties with Paramount Pictures.
Jackman wants an unknown boy to star in the movie as his 11-year-old son and has set up open calls to cast the coveted part. He tells Access Hollywood, "I'm starting work on my new film 'Real Steel' with my friend and the film's director Shawn Levy."
Levy adds, "We're actually looking for a young actor to play Hugh's son in the movie from DreamWorks, so if you think you're maybe our guy, go to realsteelcasting.com for more information on how to audition. It could be you."
"Real Steel" is due for release in November 2011.
