No one can accuse Robert Downey Jr. of resting on his laurels. Or anything else, for that matter.

It's just been announced that the actor will be producing, and may even star in, a film adaptation of Neil Strauss' nonfiction work Emergency!: This Book Will Save Your Life, which, according to Variety, is about "one man's journey on how to stay alive and protect his loved ones by learning to survive in the wild."

Although, looking at Downey's current work schedule, one might say, it too, is pretty wild… 

So what else does the actor have going on?

Well, let's see. He's currently filming a sequel to Sherlock Holmes, will reprise his role as Tony Stark in both The Avengers and Iron Man 3, has signed on for the space thriller Gravity, and may play the Wizard in a possible Oz prequel. 

Oh yeah, he's also the frontrunner to portray Hugh Hefner in a biopic and may even tackle an old Steven McQueen project.

Phew! And here we thought Ryan Seacrest kept himself busy!
