Downey will be the third film Doctor Dolittle.

Selena Gomez is on board "The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle".

Antonio Banderas (The Mask of Zorro, Genius) is set to join the upcoming Universal Pictures film The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle with Michael Sheen (TRON: Legacy, Masters of Sex) in talks, according to Deadline. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr.

Not much is known about the newest iteration of the long-running character, but the film is being directed by Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana), and will be produced by Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum, and Susan Downey.

2018 iPhones may use Intel modems inclusively, pushing out Qualcomm entirely
That may be so, but the fact is demand for iPhone X cooled quickly before Christmas, as several market observers have pointed out. As a result of these lawsuits and fines, and Apple withholding royalty payments, Qualcomm claims its revenue is being impacted.

Gomez isn't the only big name set to voice one of Dolittle's cute critters. The singer and actress has a lot on her plate, following her executive producer duties on Netflix's teen suicide series 13 Reasons Why. In addition, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes and Tom Holland will voice three of the talking animals in the script Gaghan rewrote from an earlier draft by Tom Shepherd. Banderas and Sheen will play live action roles, with Banderas playing a pirate named Rassouli and Sheen playing Mudfly.

The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle now has no release date. It's based on the character from the 1920's series of children's books by Hugh Lofting, in which a Victorian-era physician opts to treat animals instead of humans because he's able to speak with them. Filming is expected to begin later this month across the pond in London. The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle may even launch a brand-new franchise for the star who's already headed two as Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man, as part of Marvel's world-conquering Cinematic Universe.

90s kids will undoubtedly remember growing up with the Dr. Dolittle films that starred comedian Eddie Murphy.
