Holmes and Watson is set to take on the sleuth in a whole new, comedic light. With Etan Cohen in the Director’s chair (Get Hard, Men in Black 3) and our long lost duo in the title roles, we can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue as this project develops.
The film is currently on location in Greenwich, home of time and frequent location choice for various period productions; not forgetting the occasional superhero film, such as Thor: The Dark World (2013). This is not the first rodeo for Greenwich University and the Royal Naval College as far as Holmes adaptations are concerned, oh no, Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows (2011) was also shot here.

“Step Brothers” is an all-time favorite among comedy lovers, and that apparently includes lauded French actress Marion Cotillard, who says she has watched the 2008 film starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly over and over again. Each time, she says, the ending makes her shed some tears.

Reilly, but she gets outright choked up whenever she watches the comedy.
