Sherlock Holmes 3 set for production later this year says Downey Jnr

April 21st, 2016 by Marc Comments


Honestly we sort of thought that the Sherlock Holmes movies were dead in the water, but it seems we were wrong.

While doing the press circuit for Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jnr spoke with Shortlist Magazine and has said that the plan is to get another Sherlock Holmes movie: “We’ll attempt to make one this year,” Downey Jnr said.

 “When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m excited about it.”

Director of the first two movies, Guy Ritchie is filming Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur so it’ll be closer to the end of the year before it’ll even be a possibility, but Downey Jnr said the movie is in pre-production already.

It will be written by Iron Man 3’s Drew Pearce, so we’re hopefully for a fun entry in the series.

What about you guys? Are you looking forward to see the Downey Jnr Holmes back?

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….
