Robert Downey Jr.


The 'Iron Man' star could not make the sci-fi into his schedule and is now eying a role in 'How to Talk to Girls' which is based on a book written by a nine-year-old boy.

Robert Downey Jr. has officially given up his role in "Gravity". After trying to work on the project to fit into his schedule, he dropped out of the project to be directed by Alfonso Cuaron. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandra Bullock is still in talks to take the lead role while Downey Jr.'s character, which only appears in the first act, will likely be recast.

Losing a job, Downey Jr. is about to land a new one. The site further says that the actor is currently circling "How to Talk to Girls" which is based on a book by a nine-year-old boy revolving around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex. When 20th Century Fox acquires rights to make the movie, producer Shawn Levy said he wanted to make a comedy in the tone of "Big".

Detail about his character is not known and no deals have been sealed yet. The "Sherlock Holmes" star is additionally said on board to produce the film along with wife Susan Downey and Levy. Ben Karlin and Stu Zicherman wrote a draft but the project is allegedly being reconceived and developed as Downey Jr.'s vehicle.

Robert Downey Jr. is still in production for "Sherlock Holmes 2". He has "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3" lining up next and is attached to star in "Oz: The Great and Powerful".
