Stephen Gaghan and Robert Downey, Jr to Remake Doctor Doolittle

Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana, Gold) is heading into family film territory with another reboot of the tried and true tale Doctor Doolittle. Universal Pictures have landed the rights to the property, which Fox held during the Eddie Murphy reboot some years back, and this time around Robert Downey, Jr is on board to take the lead.

The project is currently titled The Voyage of Doctor Doolittle and has no start or release date as yet. Downey Jr is still on the dual Avengers movies and there is that lingering Pinocchio project at Warner Bros that has yet to take off.
