Robert Downey Jr. To Voice Mr. Peabody In PEABODY & SHERMAN
Pebody and Sherman were characters from the 1950s that made appearances in the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and now it looks like the time traveling duo will have their own animated film! PEABODY & SHERMAN is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2014, from DreakWorks.
Mr. Peabody (the genius dog) and his pet boy Sherman are known for using the “WABAC Machine” to travel back in time and meet up with historical figures. There’s no news as to what figures will appear in the new film, but we do know that it will tell us how the pair came to be.
Robert Downey Jr. will voice Mr. Peabody, directed by Rob Minkoff (Stuart Little). The animators over at DreamWorks are already creating concept designs using Downey’s image for Peabody. Sherman has not been voiced yet.
