Further signs of progress, it seems, surrounding Sherlock Holmes 3. Notwithstanding the fact that it's been nearly five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Robert Downey Jr has recently expressed his keenness to return to the series, and even suggested last week that the film could be before the cameras this year.
The latest? A fresh writer has been brought aboard the project, to do some rewrite work.
The previous draft of the movie was penned by Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce. Now, James Coyne has been hired by Warner Bros to do some further work on the Sherlock Holmes 3 screenplay.
It's not just Downey Jr likely to return when this one gets going. »
I've got one heck of a soft spot for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes franchise, not only are they immensely entertaining, but the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is, for lack of a better word, delightful. It's been close to five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows and given the sequels success, I'm a little surprised that... Read More »

It’s been five years since Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law came together for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Since then, both actors have expressed that they’re keen to make a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure, and director Guy Ritchie is also on board with the idea. The problem has been scheduling, and just fitting the project in.
But there could now be progress.
Robert Downey Jr is currently doing the interview rounds for Captain America: Civil War, and he’s confirmed that a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure is edging closer. “We’re talking about it right now”, he told Shortlist. “I can’t wait. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much as I love him – and he damn well should. When we’re making those Sherlock movies »
It's been a half decade since "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and while no one is exactly clamoring for a sequel, Robert Downey Jr. is still a mega-franchise star thanks to Marvel, so I'm sure someone at Warner Bros. wants a third movie to happen. But thus far it's been a lot of a talk and little action, with producer Lionel Wigram saying last year they were still figuring out the script, and trying to nail down a story that would work. But it seems some progress has been made since then. “We’re talking about it right now. We can do some preliminary stuff,” Rdj told Shortlist, teasing that the film could start rolling this year. “If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week,” the actor quipped. “When we’re making those 'Sherlock' movies it is off the hook. [So] we »

To the mainstream public, actor Robert Downey Jr is Iron Man. That's where the actor had his triumphant comeback, and that's where he's spent a good portion of his career for the past eight or so years. Some may have forgotten, however, that he's also the lead in another franchise. While it may not be on the same level as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's fairly large in its own right.
That's right. We're talking Sherlock Holmes. Nowadays, we have a few different interpretations of the world-famous Arthur Conan Doyle character: one on the BBC, one on CBS, and one series of big screen adaptations starring Rdj himself.
Both films in the latter film series were directed by Guy Ritchie, and brought in well over $500 million apiece. Not a bad haul for a property that's over 125 years old. However, following the release of the second film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, »

It's been a long time since we've heard about Sherlock Holmes 3, a direct follow up to the blockbuster smash hit Sherlock Holmes, which hit theaters in 2009 under the direction of Guy Ritchie. It was followed in 2011 by Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Now, star Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed that he is returning for the next sequel, and that Guy Ritchie will be back as well. There is no word yet on whether or not Jude Law will reprise his role as Watson, but the assumption is that he'll also return for a third mystery.
Speaking with ShortList.com, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that production is set to start on a third Sherlock Holmes as early as the end of this year. The man has been super busy playing the iconic Marvel superhero Iron Man over the past couple of years, appearing in three standalone movies, two Avengers adventures, »
Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes was one of 2009’s more pleasant surprises, a slick, silly, and surprisingly faithful cinematic re-imagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary “consulting detective.” It’s 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, wasn’t nearly as good, replacing much of the original’s charming bombast with very loud bombast. But I’d be lying […]

How can Robert Downey Jr. squeeze a third "Sherlock Holmes" movie into 2016, what with worldwide promotion for "Captain America: Civil War" followed by "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and filming for Marvel's two "Avengers: Infinity War" behemoths? It won't be elementary (here all week!), but Downey is itching to crack another case with director Guy Ritchie and co-star Jude Law.
Here's the conversation from there:
We're talking about it right now. Now. I can't wait.
Do you mean today?
We can do some preliminary stuff. If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have it done in a week. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much »

Long before Warner Bros. set up their DC Comics Extended Universe, which will start to fully take shape with next week's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the studio was developing Lobo, which had many filmmakers come and go but never seemed to get off the ground. Today we have word from The Wrap that the project is back in the works again, with the studio hiring Wonder Woman screenwriter Jason Fuchs to write the script. This report claims that the writer will start over completely from scratch on the project.
We first reported on Lobo back in 2009, when Guy Ritchie signed on to direct. He ended up leaving the project in 2010, to make Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. After the failures of comic book adaptations such as The Losers and especially Jonah Hex, Lobo was considered a dead project, but in 2012, Brad Peyton came aboard to direct, working »
