Anthony Peckham, the screenwriter behind Sherlock Holmes, has signed on to write Yucatan for Warner Bros., with Robert Downey Jr. attached to star, says a report at Deadline.

Yucatan is based on a story by the late actor Steve McQueen, who had intended starring in a film version himself. The story would feature Downey as a deep sea diver for-hire who is hired to uncover lost Mayan treasure.

In addition to Sherlock Holmes, Peckham also adapted John Carlin's Invictus for Clint Eastwood's 2009 film.
