Saving the World as Iron Man and one of the Avengers wasn’t enough. Robert Downey Jr. Now solves unsolvable crimes as Sherlock Holmes. But that still wasn’t enough, so now Franchise Man Downey Jr. is bringing the super Lawyer Perry Mason to the big screen.

Perry Mason is the lead character in a series of books by Erle Stanley Gardner; the film will be set in the 1930s, just like the books; although the script will be written based on a story by Robert Downey Jr. and executive producer David Gambino.

The character appears in many short stories as well as dozens of novels and sales have passed 435 million worldwide. As well as the TV that many older readers may remember, there were several movies made in the 30s (well 6 + 1 in 1940) a radio show and even comics.
