According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Downey Jr. is taking a crack at a potential new franchise for himself by agreeing to star in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle for Universal Pictures.

Based on the physician character who can talk to animals from the 1920’s series of children’s books by Hugh Lofting, the family adventure will be directed by Stephen Gaghan from a script he wrote based on an earlier version by Tom Shepherd.

Universal won the rights to make The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle after a heated bidding war between studios last week. Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing the film for their Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, alongside Susan Downey for Team Downey.
