Robert Downey Jr. will join “The Hangover” scene-stealer Zach Galifianakis in the comedy “Due Date” for Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.
Downey will play an expectant father who finds himself on a road trip with a mismatched partner, as he races to get there before the birth of his first child.
Galifianakis plays his road trip mate. Director Todd Phillips has previously referred to the project as “a buddy comedy without the buddies.”
Shooting kicks off in September, in Atlanta, Arizona and Los Angeles,
