Briefly: Looks as if Hugh Jackman likes the way Real Steel is turning out. News now is that he will do another film with director Shawn Levy after The Wolverine is finished. There isn’t much information on the project right now, aside from the fact that it is planned to be an action adventure film. Oh, and Lost co-creator Carlton Cuse is scripting. That might be kind of a big deal, could get a few people interested. This will be the first big feature project for the writer since Lost ended last year.

We’ll deliver more news on this one as it becomes available. Expect to start hearing more (like a title, for starters) when the press machinery kicks in for Real Steel. That won’t be until September (the film opens October 7) but we might also get some details at Comic Con. Meanwhile, check out the Real Steel trailer if you missed it, and prognosticate about what this team-up might deliver for an encore. So does this mean Mr. Levy won’t direct the film version of The Deadliest Warrior? [Deadline]

When Lost ended earlier this year, everyone knew what show co-creator Damon Lindelof was up to next: Some cowboys, an Alien and more Star Trek. In the grand tradition of the show that made them famous, though, a mystery remained. What would Lindelof’s co-executive producer, Carlton Cuse, choose as his follow up? Today we have an answer: an “event” series for ABC set in Virginia during the Civil War. He’ll co-write the pilot with Oscar-nominated Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace, who just directed Secretariat, and the pair will co-executive produce. Wallace will direct the pilot if it gets picked up. That’s all the info out there at the moment but one has to wonder, why all the Civil War news today? Thanks to Variety for the info.

George Lucas vs. JJ Abrams lightsaber photoshopped

Last week during Lost Live: The Final Celebration, ABC network executive Barry Jossen read a letter George Lucas wrote to Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. In the letter, Lucas finally admitted the obvious — he had no idea where the story was going when Star Wars just came out, and that “the trick is to pretend you’ve planned the whole thing out in advance.”
