Robert Downey, Jr. is set to star in an upcoming musical comedy, according to reports.

Synopsis for the yet-to-be titled film (via The Hollywood Reporter): Two Broadway songwriters find themselves creatively and financially bankrupt when their big-break musical flops. Searching for inspiration, they take jobs as counselors at the theater camp they attended as kids and hatch a plan for a big comeback.

The 45-year-old Sherlock Holmes star will team up with his wife Susan to produce the film.

    Interesting. A bit autobiographical as well as RDJ attended Stagedoor Manor theater camp as a young-in..sure will draw from that experience.

    @ Vale, you really need to study acting if you say Robert Downey Jr, can’t act, get a clue, he’s phenomenal. I will watch this guy reading a menu, he’s AWESOME, such versatility and he can sing too. I hope they pick a good costar for him.

    @ Vale, get a clue about acting, Robert Downey Jr. is phenomenal, he’s very versatile in his acting. He can sing too, I hope they give him a good costar. I will watch this and I’m not even a big musical fan either.

    Love him to death! But can he sing?

  • mad1026

    Sounds a lot like “Camp.”

    Yes, Robert can sing, and he has a lovely singing voice.

    He sang on “Ally Mc Beal” (his cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River” gets me misty-eyed), and he also has a CD entitled “The Futurist”.
    And (if memory serves) he also sings “The Christmas Song” in the Planters Peanut Christmas greeting commercial.

    I’m definitely there for this movie, and wouldn’t be even more awesome if Hugh Jackman were to co-star with him?
