Did you know there was a new Dr. Dolittle movie coming?
And this time, it’s filled with HUGE names!
From The Loop:
After all those star-studded Avengers films, it looks like Robert Downey Jr. only does movies with at least 10 other Hollywood A-listers in them. Tuesday, the actor shared the “supporting” cast for the upcoming Doctor Dolittle reboot, The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, in which he plays the titular character, and the lineup is mind-blowing.
You’ve got your Oscar-winners (and nominees) like Emma Thompson, Octavia Spencer, Marion Cotillard and Ralph Fiennes. Then there are all the hottest stars of the moment like John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Selena Gomez, Rami Malek and Tom Holland. Then there’s Carmen Ejogo (Fantastic Beasts), Craig Robinson (The Office) and Frances de la Tour (Into the Woods, also a Tony-winner).
And those are just the voice actors. Antonio Banderas and Michael Sheen were announced previously as live-action leads alongside Downey. Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde and Annette Benning are also reportedly signed to the project. Seriously, what is the budget for this thing?
Ahhh…it’s probably A LOT of money.
We’re pumped, how about you?
