He's no Raymond Burr, but...

According to Variety, Warner Bros. and Robert Downey Jr. are planning to relaunch the Perry Mason franchise (based on the original series by Erle Stanley Gardner) as a feature film, with Downey Jr. starring in the title role.

I've always been fond of the Perry Mason character, and I sincerely hope the new producers feature the books' original titles, which range from conventionally cheesy (The Case of the Lucky Legs) to delightfully weird (The Case of the Drowning Duck).
