Robert Downey Jr. to Star in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle

The classic character - who of course can talk to animals - is heading back in a new adventure, named The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle. Three decades later, Twentieth Century Fox revived Doctor Dolittle with Eddie Murphy, who starred in both the 1998 film and its sequel, released in 2001.

The project caused a bidding war in Hollywood, with Universal beating out multiple studios to pick up the rights to the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing the film for their Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, alongside Susan Downey for Team Downey. The property has spawned several films before it.

In a world where remakes and reimaginings are seemingly the only business in Hollywood, it seems as though it was just a matter of time before Dr. Doolittle got the treatment. Fleischer's original was the only one rooted in Hugh Lofting's original series of novels, The Story of Doctor Dolittle, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle and Doctor Dolittle's Circus.
