DreamWorks Animation Signed Robert Downey Jr. for ‘Peabody and Sherman’

It’s time to go way back in time. DreamWorks signed actor Robert Downey Jr. to voice Mr. Peabody, the intelligent dog accompanying Sherman on adventures in time. The character has appeared with the animated series of “Rocky and His Friends” and “The Bullwinkle Show” back in the 1950s and 1960s. The short segments called “Peabody’s Improbable History” explored various historical events with a time machine called Wabac (prounounced “way back”). “Mr. Peabody is this genetic anomaly,” said director Rob Minkoff. “He does have brothers and sisters, all of them non-speaking, no super-smart dogs. He’s an outcast, but has overcome it by being so great at so many things.” Currently, there is no casting announcement for the role of Sherman. The fully computer animated feature is slated for 2014 and will be in 3D.Source: Entertainment Weekly »
