Los Angeles: The team behind American drama film “The Judge” is taking on the political scene next as actor Robert Downey Jr., wife Susan Downey, and screenwriter Bill Dubuque are developing an untitled presidential debate comedy-drama for Warner Bros.

The film is set in the high-stakes backdrop of three presidential debates where millions of dollars and months of campaigning come down to 270 minutes of highly scrutinised political theatre, reports variety.com. 

Dubuque will pen the script with Downey Jr., Downey and David Gambino producing for Team Downey, along with Mark Williams. Gambino and Rob Hackett will oversee for Team Downey while Courtenay Valenti and Julia Spiro are overseeing for Warner Bros.

The original idea was hatched by Team Downey and Dubuque. No actors or director are currently attached to the project.
