Wedding Crashers filmmaker David Dobkin is in talks to take charge of a movie biopic based on the life of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

Movie studio executives at Warner Bros. have been developing the currently-untitled project since 2009 and have now asked Dobkin to direct, according to Variety.

The lead role has yet to be cast, but if Hefner has his way, Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. will take on the part.

The Queen scribe Peter Morgan is writing the script and Jerry Weintraub is producing.
