RDJ's Alfred Hitchcock Remake Plan Is A Step Too Far, Even For Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr.'s plans of remaking Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo may sound intriguing on paper, but it is a step too far for the Iron Man star. Adapted from the French novel D'entre les morts, Vertigo follows detective John “Scottie” Ferguson (played by James Stewart), who has a debilitating fear of heights.

However, what begins as a simple investigation becomes a loopy tale of obsession and madness.
