Hollywood star and internet’s favourite person,Robert Downey Jr is reportedly teaming up with True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto for a drama on HBO.

Pizzolatto is on board to pen the script, while the 51-year-old Iron Man actor will star in the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nic Pizzolatto’s True Detective was a big critical hit and had Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the lead.

Details about the project are being kept under wraps and it’s unclear if there are any official deals as of yet.

Sources say the project may be based on Downey’s long-gestating Perry Mason reboot, which rather than a Warner Bros Pictures feature is now being eyed for the small screen.
