So Robert Downey, Jr. has been tapped to play Doctor Dolittle in the remake/reimagining/fart noise THE VOYAGE OF DOCTOR DOLITTLE.

No word yet if this will be set in Victorian times (like the Rex Harrison original) or modern times (like the first remake, starring Eddie Murphy). However, it does sound like it'll be a bit of an origin story, possibly about him discovering his animal gifting powers. The character is based on a series of children's books in the '20s, so it could also be adapted from one (or more) of those stories as well. We'll see when more information comes out.

But what do you Schmoes think? You down for more DOCTOR DOLITTLE? And if not, does Robert Downey, Jr. soften the blow? Either way, sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: There are four DOCTOR DOLITTLE films based on Eddie Murphy's character (though the last two are straight-to-DVD and don't actually star Murphy).

We'll see. Downey has a habit of backing down from these fantasy roles in the past, like Oz a while back.

Sounds good; hopefully it's a bit more serious than the Eddie Murphy films. But like zeprules74 said, Downey has played a role like this already and absolutely pulled it off effortlessly.

I'm in. An earlier Downey movie Hearts and Souls is sorta like this premise and he nails it.
