As if Robert Downey Jr. wasn't in enough franchises, the actor is looking to bring fictional defense attorney Perry Mason to the big screen.
Variety reports that Downey Jr. and his wife and producing partner Susan Downey are looking to produce the Perry Mason movie, based on an idea by Downey Jr. and David Gambino (Whiteout) through their Team Downey production company. Downey Jr. is said to be "eyeing the project as a potential starring vehicle," but considering the Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes actor has come up with the movie's story and is looking to produce, it would seem like chances are good that Downey Jr. will take the case (if you will). The production is currently looking for a screenwriter. more about Perry Mason >>
