Robert Downey Jr. May Star in Movie Musical


Robert Downey Jr. May Star in Movie Musical

While over the past six months Robert Downey, Jr. has been rumored to star in nine upcoming films, including ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful,’ he is now reportedly attached to another movie, an untitled musical comedy. Downey, Jr. will star as part of a pair of Broadway songwriters who lose all their money after their latest show flops.

Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, who wrote the Broadway show ‘Next to Normal,’ are currently pitching the comedy film. In the movie, Downey, Jr. and his co-writer decide to go to work at the theater camp they attended as kids to make some money.

Not only will he possibly star in the film, Downey, Jr. will also produce the movie through his new production company Team Downey. The ‘Due Date’ actor has had previous experience in the music world, as he released his debut album, ‘The Futurist,’ in 2004, right before he made his acting comeback. However, the album was overlooked by many after his award-nominated role in 2005’s ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.’
