Robert Downey Jr. Will Talk To Animals as the New Doctor Dolittle

Robert Downey Jr. is officially on board to star as Dr. Doolittle

Though the past decade or so of his career has been spent teaming up with the likes of Thor, Captain America, the Hulk and more in order to protect Earth from all kinds of different threats, Robert Downey Jr. still finds time for non-Marvel projects.

Universal Pictures just won a bidding war for a new project called The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, with Downey attached to play the lead and Oscar victor Stephen Gaghanplanning to direct from his own script. Stephen Gaghan (Gold, Traffic) will direct from a screenplay he wrote based on an earlier draft by Tom Shepherd. It was written by Leslie Bricusse based on Hugh Lofting's novels: The Story of Doctor Dolittle, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle and Doctor Dolittle's Circus.

Later, Eddie Murphy made the role his own in a 1998 film that was a worldwide box office hit and spurred multiple sequels that were not as well received. The book The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle found the Doctor training a young assistant, Tommy Stubbins, and setting off on an adventure to Spider Monkey Island to rescue his kidnapped friend, Long Arrow.

Lofting's character was portrayed by Rex Harrison in the 1967 musical "Doctor Dolittle", which won Oscars for best original song and best visual effects.

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.
