The incomparable Robert Downey Jr may have disappointed us all when he said there will be no Iron Man 4, but he delighted many when he told Redditors, in October, that Sherlock Holmes 3 was in development. Now he’s hinting that filming will begin this year! He even quipped that it would be finished already if they could film it via Skype.
The last time Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law teamed up to play the iconic Victorian detectives, Holmes and Watson, was in 2011, but to be fair they have both been pretty busy. Most people recognise Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, from all the Marvel movies he’s starred in. Jude Law has been working with Guy Ritchie, co-director of the previous Sherlock Holmes movies, on a new King Arthur movie. Jude Law has also been working on various indie films.
I prefer to imagine that the reason the movies development was delayed because they couldn’t get Sherlock out of his rooms. I’m very excited about this, and I can’t wait to tell you more.
