'Pirates' Writer Takes on 'Yucatan' for RDJ

Four years after the Warner Bros. heist adventure Yucatan was first announced, the project is moving forward with screenwriter Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) coming aboard to re-write the script. Anthony Peckham was first set to write the script when Robert Downey Jr. attached himself to star in 2010.

The story is based on a massive 1,700-page movie treatment written by legendary actor Steve McQueen in the 1960s, which he was developing as a starring vehicle for himself. The treatment was discovered in two leather-bound trunks by the actor's son Chad McQueen in 2005, 25 years after his death in 1980. The original treatment followed a salvage expert (Robert Downey Jr.) and his search for lost Mayan treasure in the Yucatan peninsula. No details have been given for the updated story, but Terry Rossio and actor/producer Robert Downey Jr. are using the original premise as a jumping off point for "a mind-bending adventure."

Robert Downey Jr. is producing alongside his wife Susan Downey, David Gambino and Dan Lin. No director is attached at this time. Here's what Robert Downey Jr. had to say in a statement.
"To imbue a McQueen project with a sense of how he might have made it nowadays is a challenge and a thrill. Rossio is more than a great writer, he's the perfect fit to embrace the existential nature of the project with the action, story and characters that drive Yucatan."
Terry Rossio's writing credits include all four Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Shrek, Deja Vu, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, G-Force and last year's The Lone Ranger.

The 18th annual Hollywood Film Awards kicked off awards season Friday night, and for the first time ever, the event was broadcasted live on CBS. Host Queen Latifah entertained the crowd at the Hollywood Palladium as viewers and attendees got a glimpse of some of this year's major award frontrunners.

Robert Downey Jr. kicked off the evening, presenting the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award to his The Judge co-star Robert Duvall.

"There’s never been anyone better and there likely never will be," Downey said of Duvall, who was equally effusive about his co-star.

"The reason I took the project mainly is because of Robert Downey Jr," Duvall praised. "We spent many good times together."

RDJ and Wife Susan Welcome a Daughter

Posted by Thora | 05/11/2014 | News | 0 Comment(s)
Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, have welcomed a daughter in Los Angeles, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.

The baby girl joins the couple’s son Exton, 2½, and Downey’s 21-year-old son Indio from a previous marriage.

Just last Thursday, The Judge and Iron Man star, 49, paid a loving tribute to his very pregnant wife and soon-to-be-born daughter during the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where he received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

“It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” said Downey. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: You don’t know anything. It’s great!”

In his acceptance speech Downey singled out his wife and producing partner, “who is literally about to pop,” and asked her to stand up for the crowd. “How is she still so darn pretty and functional and mood-stable?” he told the audience before joking that “the second pregnancy has been extraordinarily tough for me. Self-prescribed mandatory bed rest was of some benefit. At least my milk is finally coming in.”

RDJ on Tony Stark's Progression in AoU

Posted by Thora | 30/10/2014 | Films, Articles | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story
In June, a bunch of press were able to visit the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. During their visit a press panel was held with the cast and crew and now it's time to see what Robert Downey Jr. has to say about Age of Ultron and his character Tony Stark. He begins by talking about his first initial reaction to getting the script from Joss Whedon.
"Well, first of all, he’s a good writer, so I always tend to think generally speaking, 'Is this a movie I wanna see?' ‘cause all the fine points are gonna get worked out. At this point, as the Mayor of Marvel (laughter), there’s gonna be so many squeaky wheels along the way. Many of them practical and others just, you know, creative departures or differences or whatever. So to me, this kinda started with the third Iron Man which is like, 'All right, I’m gonna read the script. Who wrote it?' 'Shane Black.' 'I like it.' This time I think that from jump I thought, “Wow, this is really what Avengers: Age of Ultron should be. (I hadn’t figured it out beforehand) But I was done with the first draft and I said, 'Cool, I like it.' Kevin was like, 'Wait, what did you just say?' (laughter) I’m sure there was a bunch of iterations and things that changed over time. Then I read the second and then the third draft, and he’s continuing to write even as we’re setting up shots he’s going, 'I know what I want it to be or bringing back in a line that was in the first draft or whatever.' You’d think was like the ingredients to that salad dressing that makes girls go into labor. I guess it is."
Marvel Studios Fan Event

Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans appeared at Marvel's live event to confirm the title and reveal the logo for 'Captain America: Civil War'.

It was revealed earlier in the month that Robert Downey Jr. will be co-starring in Captain America 3, which will introduce the popular Civil War comic book story line into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, at an epic Hollywood event, Marvel has confirmed the title Captain America: Civil War and the participation of Robert Downey Jr.

Kevin Feige teased that the title was actually Captain America: Serpent Society at the start of the event, and didn't clarify it was a joke until the official logo was later revealed.

Both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans took the stage at the El Capitan theater to usher in the official announcment. It was also revealed that Chadwick Boseman will be joining the sequel, and will be seen in his full Black Panther costume before he debuts in his own solo movie, which will be released November 3, 2017.

Captain America: Civil War
will pit Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man/Tony Stark against Chris Evans' Captain America/Steve Rogers, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with super-human abilities to register themselves with the U.S. government, and agree to serve as part of a new police force. Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, believing that it threatens the civil liberties of U.S. citizens. Rogers and others opposing the act are forced to go on the run. This story will also enable Stark to be a villain, of sorts, with his views going against the rest of his Avengers teammates.

Production is set to begin in the spring of 2015, with a May 6, 2016 release date already slated for the sequel.

Captain America: Civil War
comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.
