With a little less than five months to go before its release, Marvel Studios has launched the official website for Joss Whedon’s eagerly-anticipated superhero team-up Avengers: Age of Ultron, which you can find here. The site is pretty much devoid of content at present, barring a possible snippet of composer Brian Tyler’s (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World) score for the sequel and the following wallpaper:

Considering that the first time father and son worked together in the experimental film Pound, and a five-year old Robert Downey Jr’s first line of movie dialogue was “Have any hair on your balls,” you wouldn’t expect the relationship between a wildly creative actor/producer and the director of Putney Swope to be the stuff of Ozzy and Harriet. In fact, there is a very warm and fuzzy dynamic right now between father and son. The latter just presented the former with another grandchild; and this weekend, Downey Jr has lent his clout to doing right by dad in a retrospective of films from a true ironman of eclectic avant-gard cinema. A fundraiser for The Friends Of Cinefamily, Truth And Soul Inc. is a whole weekend’s worth of festivities that began last night with a panel discussion between father and son. Events include appearances by Paul Thomas Anderson & Louis CK; tonight’s a screening of Pound and a restored print of Greaser’s Palace, the other one of dad’s movies that RDJ appeared in as a child. Tomorrow brings a Putney Swope gala screening at the Ace Hotel’s United Artist Theatre. Here, Downey Jr talks about his relationship with his storied father, and his own inevitable trip to the director’s chair. But first, that immortal first double Downey movie moment:

'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.”
