Robert Downey Jr. Teams Up With Wife to Produce USS Indianapolis Movie

The 'Sherlock Holmes' actor and his producer wife Susan will work together with Warner Bros. Pictures in bringing to the big screen the story of the sinking of USS Indianapolis.

Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Downey are set to produce a movie about the sinking of USS Indianapolis that happened during the World War II in 1945. The couple will join forces with Warner Bros. Pictures in developing this project, and will present it through a modern lens.

This movie will unravel the story through the eyes of Hunter Scott, an 11-year-old boy who sets out to clear the name of the Indianapolis' late court-martialed captain, Charles McVay. When looking for a subject for a national History Day competition, he learned about the Indianapolis through a scene from "Jaws". His research and testimony led to the clearing of the captain's official record.

Warner Bros. is not the first who want to bring Hunter's story to the big screen. Director J.J. Abrams has previously tried to develop the project through Universal Studios, but it was put into turnaround in the late 2000s. That being put aside, this new untitled Hunter Scott project has locked Robert Schenkkan as the screenwriter.
