Robert Downey, Jr. Set to Star in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle
The project caused a bidding war in Hollywood, with Universal beating out multiple studios to pick up the rights to the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Variety reports that Downey Jr.is attached to play the good doctor in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, based on the character created by British author Hugh Lofting. Are the stories themselves as odd as the titles? The story follows the eccentric Doctor John Dolittle, a former physician who lives with and treats animals, claiming that he can communicate with them. Sounds ideal like the flawless role for Downey Jr.to take on, right?
"Doctor Dolittle" is being eyed as a possible family film franchise. The material was previously used for the expensive 1967 musical flop Doctor Dolittle starring Rex Harrison, as well as the looser contemporary 1998 remake starring Eddie Murphy, which spawned a 2001 sequel Doctor Dolittle 2, as well as several direct-to-video follow-ups starring Kyla Pratt.
Dr Dolittle will mark Downey Jr's first role outside of Tony Stark and Iron Man since 2014's The Judge, in which he played Hank Palmer. He will reprise the role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.
He has also written the screenplay, after winning a Best Screenplay Oscar for Traffic. He repped by CAA and Hansen, Jacobson.
CAA packaged the deal and represents Gaghan, Downey, and Roth/Kirschenbaum.
