    Multiple sources report that resurgent actor Robert Downey, Jr. is attached to star in a musical pitch that Warner Bros. just picked up from Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composing team behind the musical Next to Normal.

    Downey will also produce the pic alongside his wife Susan Downey via their Team Downey banner.

    The story follows two Broadway songwriters who find themselves creatively and financially bankrupt when their big-break musical flops. Searching for inspiration, they take jobs as counselors at the theater camp they attended as kids and hatch a plan for a big comeback. That sounds like somewhat of an update of The Producers main theme about Broadway producers, no?

    Let's assume that Downey Jr. would play one of the songwriters. Who should play the other songwriter? Matt Damon? Zack Galafianakis?
