“Real Steel” helmer will start shooting the pic June 25, with “Wedding Crashers” thesp duo Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson set to star. The duo will portray two old-school salesmen who, finding themselves suddenly unemployed in the digital world, try to reinvent themselves by becoming interns at a major tech company.

Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment and Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions will produce the film based on Vaughn’s original script.

Fox-based Levy has been attached to a number of high-profile projects recently, including “Fantastic Voyage” and “Frankenstein,” making many bizzers wonder what his next helming gig would be.
