Downey voicing ‘Peabody’ for DreamWorks

Actor set for Minkoff-helmed toon

Robert Downey Jr. is getting into the WABAC Machine, signing on to voice Mr. Peabody in “Peabody and Sherman” for DreamWorks Animation with Rob Minkoff directing.

The bespectacled dog Mr. Peabody and his adopted pet boy Sherman were introduced in 1959 in a series of short segments as part of “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.” They logged more than 90 adventures, jumping into Peabody’s “WABAC Machine” to travel back in time.

The “Peabody” script has been penned by Jeffrey Ventimilia and Joshua Sternin. DreamWorks, which launched development of the project in 2006, is planning for the new animated feature to be released in 2014.

Downey was seen in “Due Date” and is in production on “Sherlock Holmes II.”
