Later this year we'll be getting the Guy Ritchie directed Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr. as a more caddish, bumbling, action-oriented world's greatest detective than we're used to seeing.. Opinions have already been quite mixed on this new action-comedy Hollywood take on the usually sophisticated and literate Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creation. What will the purists say when they find out The Asylum is getting into the Sherlock Holmes game?

Production has already begun on The Asylum's Sherlock Holmes starring Gareth David-Lloyd of "Torchwood" and Dominic Keating of "Star Trek: Enterprise" with a January 27th, 2010 DVD release date already set for the film's release. So what great mystery will The Asylum have Holmes unravel? Probably the mystery of how he went from being the world's most famous detective to a Van Helsing-style monster fighter. At least that's what the one sentence plot synopsis makes it sound like.
