Writer Bill Dubuque has inked a deal with Warner Bros. and Robert Downey Jr. to re-write their upcoming dramedy, The Judge. The script was first written by Nick Schenk.

The film follows a big-city lawyer who returns home after the death of his mother to learn that his estranged father, a judge, is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.

David Dobkin is directing the project, with Susan Downey producing alongside her husband.

This project is still in development.
