Joel Silver Confirms Start of Production for Sherlock Holmes 3
Today, Joel Silver, producer for the upcoming Sherlock Holmes film, has confirmed that production will begin this fall. He also confirmed that they have a script and that Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law will both be returning to reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Silver said during an interview, "It looks like it could happen this fall. Downey said he wants to do it. He's gotta launch into another Avengers movie, right after the New Year, so we're trying to get it done. We have a script that we like. Jude [Law] is available and Downey is available, and we're hoping we can get it done. If it works, great. If not, we'll do it another time. But, it looks like it could happen now." He went on to say, "I hope [it's not the last one]. I don't think so. How many Bond films have they made? As long as there's a character, we can work with it. It's not an end story. We can keep going, as long as people want to do it. It's [the actor's] call. They have to say, 'Okay, I'm ready to go.' I read about them making another Bad Boys. If they want to do it, then you try to get it done."
So far, the franchise has earned over $1 billion worldwide.
