Iron Man 3
You've heard it all before. Franchise actors who claim they want to move on and tackle more artistic endeavors, or who insist they will only come back if the script is right and can do justice to the film(s) that came before. But few of those people are Robert Downey Jr., and even fewer earned the $50 million he pocketed from the mega-success of "The Avengers," thanks to his back-end deal for starring in the movie. So, will RDJ really walk away from that kind of money, despite professing a desire to move on from playing Tony Stark? If his interview in GQ is anything to go by, the answer is yes.

While she hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2012's movie-you-already-forgot-about "Safe House," Vera Farmiga has a helluva 2013 lined up. This spring sees her raise a pyscho in the A&E series "Bates Motel," while this summer she'll continue to chill in the horror flick "The Conjuring." And just as those two projects head to screens big and small, the actress is eager to get back on set.

Okay, so it's not quite Jack Nicholson who the filmmakers were hoping for last fall, but a movie with Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. in the lead roles, still sounds pretty good us.

Between comic book movies, tentpole blockbusters, and big name comedies, it's easy to forget that Robert Downey Jr. has other projects that don't have the Marvel stamp, require him to bromance with Jude Law, or laugh it up with Todd Phillips. And one of those gigs is "The Judge," announced this spring. But of course, being RDJ, a big name is being sought to share the screen with him.

Robert Downey Jr. and David Dobkin are two faves down on the Warner Bros. lot. Of course, the former is the man who has turned "Sherlock Holmes" into a mega franchise and the latter had a huge hit for their New Line arm with "Wedding Crashers," also had a hit with "Fred Claus" and after a rough patch, is still developing "Arthur & Lancelot" under their roof. So why not pair those two together?
