Evangeline Lilly To Star In Real Steel
In a few weeks, Evangaline Lilly will finally get off the most frustrating island in the history of the world when Lost ends its run. It’s good to know there’s some work waiting for her when the Losties finally (hopefully) make it home. According to Variety, Lilly is set to co-star in the upcoming Real Steel. Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) has also signed on for the sci-fi drama, already starring Hugh Jackman, about a former boxer who trains a 2,000 pound human-lookalike, robot for a big championship fight. And just when I thought things couldn’t sound anymore ridiculous than the premise for Lost. Shawn Levy (Date Night, Night at the Museum) is on board to direct.
Lilly’s star looks set to shine after Lost wraps up and could make an easy transition to movies. She had a small roll with Mackie in The Hurt Locker as the wife of Jeremy Renner’s bomb-diffusing character. Other than that, her movie credentials are relatively sparse. Life after Lost could see Lilly more and more on the big screen as she transitions away from the enigmatic (and a bit frustrating) character of ex-convict Kate Austen.
