Downey, The Rock join projects
08.28.07 by REELZ
Robert Downey Jr. has joined the cast of the Jamie Foxx drama The Soloist, a true story about a violin prodigy who wound up homeless and battling schizophrenia. RDJ will play the LA Times columnist who discovers him.
Sounds a little bit like Resurrecting the Champ, don't you think? Hopefully a little bit better, though.
And The Rock will be leading the way in Witch Mountain, Disney's follow up to its original Escape to Witch Mountain from 1975. He will play a Vegas cab driver who picks up a pair of magically-endowed siblings as a fare.
