From Slashfilm - March 20, 2017

Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to star as Doctor Dolittle in an adaptation of The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle for Universal. Learn more details about the Robert Downey Jr Doctor Dolittle movie, after the jump.

Stephen Gaghan, who wrote and directed Gold and Syriana, and wrote Rules of Engagement, Traffic, The Alamo andHavoc, is writing and directing the adaptation.Tom Shepherd wrote a previous draft of the script. The project was packaged and sent to studios last week, and Universal won the rights after an intense bidding battle with other studios.

While the books may be good source material for children movie adaptations, its hard not to imagine that Robert Downey Jr. isnt going the same route as an actor like Johnny Depp. I hope I am wrong and lets all pray that this is better than the Eddie Murphy films released in the late 1990s. You can watch a trailer from this movie embedded below.
