Robert Downey Jr. is set to star in a new take on the story of Doctor Dolittle, The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.
Doctor Dolittle started out as a series of children’s books from the 1920s which revolved around a man who could talk to animals. It was adapted for the screen in 1967 as an Oscar musical starring Rex Harrison. It then returned in 1998 and 2001 as a reboot and sequel starring Eddie Murphy.
Stephen Gaghan (Gold) will direct the film though it is unclear what form the film will take.
