Okay, yeah, not much information in that, but the possibility is certainly there, and Downey, Jr. seems perfectly okay with the adaptation happening.
Inherent Vice is Thomas Pynchon's latest novel, and also his most mainstream and easiest to adapt. It's one of his California books, which are not as grand in scope as his big novels (V., Gravity's Rainbow, Mason & Dixon, and Against the Day), but hey, it's still Pynchon.
Inherent Vice follows the bumbling adventures of pothead private dick Doc Sportello. It all starts with a kidnapping plot his ex-girlfriend tips him on and then becomes Pynchonesque-er from there. Since you've come all this way, I've included a trailer made for the book Inherent Vice. It features the voice of Thomas Pynchon himself.
