The likes of Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Tom Holland (insert obligatory "not that one, the other one" gag here) and Ralph Fiennes are all joining the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress and singer Selena Gomez has officially boarded Universal Pictures' upcoming family comedy, The Voyage of Dr. Dolittle. Team Downey produced the Sherlock Holmes films, The Judge and The Brave One.

Originally the script was written by Thomas Shepherd (Agatha Christie), and has been rewritten by Stephen Gaghan (Traffic), who's also set to direct. On the television side of things, Gomez is the executive producer of Netflix's runaway hit drama 13 Reasons Why. And we'll be able to find out when the movie makes port at theaters on April 12, 2019. Filming is expected to begin later this month across the pond in London.

Eddie Murphy made two Doctor Dolittle movies between the late 1990s and early 2000s. Sheen (Masters of Sex, Midnight in Paris) will play a character called Mudfly, who will operate as a sort of sidekick to Downey's Doctor Dolittle.
