Warner Bros. pushes forward a musical comedy with a script and lyrics written by Brian Yorkey, and music composed by Tom Kitt. The award-winning team developed the story with Anonymous Content, along with Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan Downey. And yes, Robert Downey Jr. will star in the musical.
Downey will play one of the two songwriters who become bankrupt after their first big musical becomes a failure. Searching for creative inspiration, they become counselors at their childhood theater camp.
Robert Downey Jr. has experience in theater, including Broadway show American Passion. He’s a very charismatic actor, and it’ll be a pleasure to see him bring his singing onto the big screen.
What can I say? I’m a huge fan of the man. I’m stoked for his musical comedy.
