'Real Steel' Filming Caused Chaos in Michigan
A camera helicopter used for the shooting hooked a power line, cutting off a power supply to Sheridan Township.


Hugh Jackman's new movie "Real Steel" briefly caused chaos in rural Michigan on Sunday night, September 21 when a camera helicopter hooked a power line. No one was injured but the incident closed a main road and cut off a power supply to Sheridan Township.

Local Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson tells the Huron Daily Tribune the helicopter, which was equipped with a front-mounted camera, experienced "directional control issues" after snagging the power line.

"Real Steel" will see Hugh Jackman starring as Charlie Kenton, an ex-fighter who becomes a promoter when human boxing is outlawed for being too violent. He then finds a discarded robot that always seems to win. During his struggle to become a successful promoter, he discovers that he has a 13-year-old son, and they bond as the robot brawls its way toward the top.

Dakota Goyo is cast as Kenton's son Max, joined by the likes of Hope Davis, Anthony Mackie and Evangeline Lilly. Directed by Shawn Levy, this action sci-fi is slated to arrive in the U.S. on November 18, 2011.
