A year ago we reported
that Robert Downey Jr.
is set to play a successful attorney (or something like that) in a project titled The Judge
, which comes from director David Dobkin
. Today, we’re here to report that Robert Duvall
is on board to play Downey Jr.’s father. Sounds good, or what?
Described as a murder-mystery, The Judge
will revolve around a successful attorney who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town’s judge, is the murder suspect.
In other words – Robert Downey Jr.
will have a difficult job – to discover the truth and along the way to reconnect with the family he walked away from years before.
The movie will be a co-production between Team Downey and Dobkin’s Big Kid Pictures
, and Susan Downey, Dobkin and David Gambino are on board to produce the whole thing.
As usual – with every new update on The Judge
– we’ll be back, so make sure you stay tuned!
