Downey, Penn & Gibson
Robert Downey Jr. has found the leading lady for his next film THE SINGING DETECTIVE in actress Robin Wright-Penn. Penn will play the ex-wife of Downey's character, an author whose declining sanity fills his head with fantasies of living out the novels he's written. Mel Gibson, whose producing the film, has also signed on for a smaller supporting role as Downey's psychiatrist. DETECTIVE marks Downey's first film since his latest arrest on drug charges and comes via good pal and supporter Gibson.
