Robert Downey Jr.’s ‘The Judge’ Set For Oscar Push

Duvall, D'Onofrio, Farmiga also star

Warner Bros. has dated Robert Downey Jr.’s “The Judge” for Oct. 10, 2014, making the legal drama about a big-city lawyer whose father is accused of murder a prime suspect for Oscar season.

Robert Duvall portrays Downey’s father, the small-town’s judge from where the film’s title is derived.

Vincent D’Onofrio, Vera Farmiga and Billy Bob Thornton also star, with David Dobkin directing. The project is a co-production between Warner-based Team Downey and Big Kid Pictures, with Susan Downey, Dobkin and David Gambino producing.

Two other titles have already been dated for Oct. 14, 2014 — Sony’s Seth Rogen comedy “The Interview” and Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”
