Eleven-year-old joins "Real Steel" partner Hugh Jackman for fantasy pic

Up-and-coming kid thesp Dakota Goyo has reteamed with his “Real Steel” partner Hugh Jackman to voice a character in DreamWorks Animation’s 3D fantasy “Rise of the Guardians.”

The 11-year-old joins the cast first reported by Variety of Jackman, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin and Isla Fisher.

Peter Ramsey will direct the pic, slated for 2012. Film is based on a book by William Joyce, who will co-direct from a script penned by David Lindsay-Abaire.
