Robert Downey Jr. Leaves 'Cowboys and Aliens' for 'Sherlock Holmes' Sequel
Robert Downey Jr. has dropped out of new movie "Cowboys and Aliens" to concentrate on the "Sherlock Holmes" sequel, according to reports. The Hollywood actor was set to re-team with "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau for the sci-fi adventure, based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same name.
