Average Height, Average Build is Adam McKay's next feature film starring Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr. in the lead roles. The famous Oscar-winning filmmaker is known for directing such classics as The Big Short and Don't Look Up. The duo is set to present a comedy story about a serial killer.
It was Puck News who broke the news that both actors were on board the project and it is expected to be one of the biggest productions of the year. Deadline reported that "The script and that package are available to studios and broadcasters, and the intention is to put it into production in late summer or early fall".
Despite telling the story of a murderer, it will have a humorous and satirical style. So we won't see a classic drama film about the victims, far from it. Rather, it is likely to portray how he protects his own motives, while becoming a cause celebre. Here, check out everything that is known about the film...
