Stephen Gaghan (Gold, Syriana) will direct the movie from his own script, with the story based on author Hugh Lofting's 1920s children's book series. She also joins Michael Sheen and Antonio Banderas, who step into the live-action roles of Mudfly and Rassouli, respectively.
It is reported that Tom Holland, Selena Gomez, Emma Thompson, and Ralph Fiennes will join the lead Robert Downey Jr. who is playing the physician with the ability to talk to animals. The cameras should be rolling later this month in London with Universal eyeing an April 2019 release date.

By the casting announcements and the talent behind the picture (Oscar victor Tom Stoppard also wrote an early draft of the screenplay), we imagine that it will err closer to the original 1920s books written by Hugh Lofting than the Eddie Murphy movies, that hailed from 1990s kitsch.

The character of Doctor Dolittle hasn't been seen on the big screen since the pair of hit Eddie Murphy movies almost 20 years ago. Universal is no doubt hoping to replicate their success with The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle when the film is released next year. Eddie Murphy took over the role in the 1998 film of the same name, along with its 2001 sequel.
