Actor Robert Downey Jr. may be heading to the stars in Avengers: Infinity War this year, but that’s not the only film on the horizon for him. He took to Twitter earlier this morning to show off an enviable list of actors that will be joining him in the upcoming The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle movie.

Yep, you heard that right. Doctor Dolittle. Hollywood’s taking yet another stab at this tried-and-true story about a doctor who can speak with animals. It’s not a remake we’ve been asking for, but they can certainly do much worse with the cast. Have a look at who the studio locked down below!

Joining the human Doctor Dolittle, played by Downey Jr. himself are Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, Craig Robinson, Octavia Spencer, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Holland, Ralph Fiennes, Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cena, and Selena Gomez.

Needless to say, this is some real grade A talent for a movie I really wasn’t interested about at first. But between them, the title, and the logo revealed, this actually looks like a project I may be able to get behind. The actual story for the film is unknown, but they have my attention.

What do you think of the cast for this film? Does it make you any more interested in a Voyage of Doctor Dolittle film? Sound off down below!
