Warner Bros. has acquired Cloaked reports Deadline, a pitch which will be developed into a script by Derek Connolly (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World). The movie is based on an idea from Robert Downey Jr., and he will produce alongside his wife Susan Downey.
The duo developed the concept – described as “a supernatural horror comedy in the vein of An American Werewolf In London” – with Connolly before taking it to the studio.
It’s unclear at this point if Downey Jr. will star in the film, although he would certainly be the right choice to help make the movie a hit after starring in the Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man franchises.
The actor will next be seen in Jon Favreau’s Chef and The Judge, another Warner Bros. movie which actually led to Team Downey signing a first look deal at the studio.
