Sherlock Holmes 3 a “high priority”
Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law are set to return for Sherlock Holmes 3. But there's a bit more of a wait yet...
The success of Warner Bros’ two Sherlock Holmes films to date, starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, has meant that a third instalment in the franchise was always likely to happen. Work on a script started even before the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, and producer Dan Lin has confirmed that the project is still very much on the radar. “It’s a high priority for the studio and for all the filmmakers involved”, he told Collider.
As to the current progress of the project? “It’s still in development”, he revealed. “Drew Pearce is working on the script and Downey, as you know, is still finishing Iron Man 3, so we’re waiting for Downey to finish that movie and to get a script from rew”.
Lin promised new locations and new settings for Sherlock Holmes 3 too. It’s unclear as of yet whether Guy Ritchie will return to direct, but the chances are good we’d wager.
The earliest we’d expect to see Sherlock Holmes 3 is 2014, as things stand.
