Robert Downey Jr. is reportedly interested in starring in the The $40,000 Man. The film was written by Terry Zwigoff (Ghost World) and re-written by John Francis Daley (Horrible Bosses) and is about “a legendary astronaut and ‘true American hero,’ who is horribly injured in a car crash and is rebuilt by the government to be a bionic man but on a budget of $40,000 – which makes him not that bionic.” I’m particularly curious about Downey’s interest in this project since the role sounds like Iron Man but with crappy powers.
