Sherlock Holmes 3 script in the works

December 18th, 2012 by bash Comments

Producer Dan Lin has confirmed that the filmmaking team behind Sherlock Holmes are just awaiting a script before commencing work on a third film in the hit franchise.

Speaking to, Lin said that Drew Pearce was working on a screenplay and that it would move forward even further when Robert Downey Jnr finishes work on Iron Man 3.

“It’s still in development,” he said. ” 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 Drew.”

Asked how high a priority the film was for Warner Bros., Lin continued: “It is a high priority for the studio and all for the filmmakers involved… We want to make the right movie. We got a great response to the second movie and frankly the Moriarty character sets such a high bar that we want to make sure we’re telling the right story for the third movie.”

Although plot details are at a minimum at present, Lin teased: “I don’t want to go into details about [characters returning], I just want to say that there will be some new locations, new settings for the third movie. Just like Sherlock for the second movie took us in a new location; the third movie will take us to a new location as well.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
