Los An­ge­les: Hol­ly­wood star 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.

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 longges­tat­ing Perry Ma­son re­boot, which rather than a Warner Bros

Pic­tures fea­ture is now be­ing eyed for the small screen. The ac­tor’s wife and pro­duc­ing part­ner, Su­san Downey of Team Downey, will ap­par­ently ex­ec­u­tive pro­duce the drama with him. HBO de­clined to com­ment. For Downey, if the deal is struck, it would mark his re­turn to the small screen fol­low­ing his role on Fox’s Ally McBeal.

In the orig­i­nal non-cropped ver­sion of the pic­ture, which was clicked by a pa­parazzi, Tom Hid­dle­ston was spot­ted with his lover Tay­lor Swift near a beach thereby the ini­tial T.S ob­vi­ously in­di­cated the acronyms of the singer.Daily Mail
