Robert Downey In A Buddy Comedy With Zach Galifianakis
Having proven himself a comedic genius in Tropic Thunder, Robert Downey Jr. is ready to get more laughs. Variety says heís set to star in the next comedy from The Hangoverís director Todd Phillips. Itís called Due Date and theyíre pairing him up with bearded weirdness personified: Zach Galifianakis.
As the title suggests, RDJ will play an expectant father. The movie appears to be a road trip flick and a buddy comedy, with Downey and Galifianakis trapped in a car together as they race cross country to be there for the birth of Robertís first child.
Iron Man 2 wrapped last week, which means after heís done with Comic Con RDJ gets only a brief break. Heíll start shooting this next, in September with locations in Atlanta, Arizona, and Los Angeles.
