Sherlock Holmes 3 heading for the old west?

March 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So now that – we presume – Robert Downey Jnr is done with Marvel for a while, we may be getting the long anticipated Sherlock Holmes 3.

Now we know this isn’t the first time we’ve thought it was happening as Downey Jnr himself said it would film in 2016 (here) while Watson actor Jude Law hinted it was happening late last year (here) but now we’re hearing the movie will film early in 2020 and there’s rumours of where the plot will take the duo of Holmes and Watson.

The movie’s “setting is expected to be the Old West in the United States, specifically San Francisco, California”.

It is known that Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was friends with famed magician Harry Houdini and American law enforcement agent William J. Burns, who Doyle referred to as the “American Sherlock Holmes”, so it could certainly see the famed detective meeting up with some real historic characters… I’d love to see a Holmes/Houdini movie.

The movie will likely be directed by returning director Guy Ritchie and is due on December 21st, 2021.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
