Robert Duvall portrays Downey's father, the small-town's judge from where the film's title is derived.
Vera Farmiga and Billy Bob Thornton also star, with David Dobkin directing. The project is a co-production between Warner-based Team Downey and Big Kid Pictures, with Susan Downey, Dobkin and David Gambino producing.
Two other titles have already been dated for Oct. 14, 2014 -- Sony's Seth Rogen comedy "The Interview" and Disney's "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."
