Downey on Due Date, Sherlock Holmes 2, Gravity

Downey on Due Date, Sherlock Holmes 2, Gravity

We caught up with the always-amusing Robert Downey Jr on Friday at the “Iron Man 2″ junket and proceeded to get an update on some of his future projects.

Due Date

“I’ve seen the movie. It’s like the second greatest movie I’ve ever done – largely due to Zach Galifianakis, who is crazy good in every scene, and Todd Phillips, who is just one of the great American directors. I guarantee you’re going to love it – I went to the last screening and people were literally saying ‘Oh my god, It’s gotta stop – my face hurts!’
Downey says Galifianakis doesn’t necessarily improvise in the film he “just does what he wants- whether the scene needs it or not”. The actor said he had constantly ask his juvenile co-star, who he jokingly said acted like a children that just “did what he wants” at any time on the set, if “he needed to go to the bathroom because we’re gonna be in the car for an hour”.

Sherlock Holmes 2

“I’m doing Sherlock Holmes again so I’m going back and reading all the Conan Doyle books again. I just finished them, so I’m gonna start over again – at Volume 1″. Downey also joked that there’ll be a “pantsless” nude scene between him and co-star Jude Law in the sequel.

Gravity

“I’m working with Alfonso Cauron on this 3D Space movie about people trying to fix the hubble telescope. It’s been really inspiring talking to Cauron – he lives in London, but he’s originally from Mexico City, and there’s a little bit of a language barrier but he’s a brilliant guy and a thoughtful guy”.

And as far as the oft-rumoured “Vampire Lestat” reboot that Downey is said to have been offered he joked that it’s ”probably true”, because he’s essentially offered everything these days.
