Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man has decided to do a Doctor Dolittle reboot.

Robert Downey will play Dr. Dolittle, joined by the cast of Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Emma Thompson (Harry Potter, Men in Black). If you can remember, Doctor Dolittle was made back in 1998, starring Eddie Murphy as Dr. Dolittle, the doctor who can talk to animals.

The new film will be titled The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, after one of the 3 classic children’s book. It will also follow the storyline of the children’s book. So it will not be anything like the Doctor Dolittle we remember. This one will take place more on islands and on the sea, based off the books plot line. Eddie Murphy’s version was not based off the book at all. The only thing similar being that he was a doctor that could talk to animals.

Fun Fact: Eddie Murphy’s Dr. Dolittle was not the first film made, his version was was actually a remake of the 1967 movie.

So, are you here for it?
