Apparently, the folks at DreamWorks like what they see of director Shawn Levy's (Date Night) new movie, Real Steel, because the studio is already prepping for a sequel. According to Deadline, John Gatins, who wrote the screenplay for Real Steel from a story by Dan Gilroy and Jeremy Leven, has been hired to begin work on the next installment. This is somewhat unusual considering the first movie won't debut in theaters for another six months and the property is not a known franchise (yet), but Deadline speculates that the decision is based on "strong response to internal screenings" at DreamWorks and because of the reaction the footage received at a screening at the recent CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas.
