    Robert Downey Jr. will join Zach Galifianakis in Todd Philips' "Due Date," Entertainment Weekly reported.

    The film will find Zach reuniting with Todd, who directed him in this summer's surprise hit "The Hangover" – which, with over $240 million in box office grosses, has become the highest-earning R-rated comedy in history.

    "Due Date" could potentially start filming this fall with a summer 2010 release in mind.
