After finishing his role within the MCU, Robert Downey Jr. will be part of a new HBO series, based on the novel written by Viet Thanh Nguyen with the Italian title of The investigator. The story centers on a former spy from the South Vietnamese security services, who is actually an undercover agent of the Vietcong.

The protagonist of the novel, Pulitzer Prize in 2016, recounts the last months of the war in Vietnam and his trip to the United States with his general, a figure who represents the regime against which he himself is fighting. The story sees the presence of double games, high-tension situations and a strong criticism, and satire, of Eastern and Western cultures.
