Robert Downey Jr. to Return as England's Greatest Detective in Sherlock Holmes 3

Robert Downey Jr. to Return as England's Greatest Detective in Sherlock Holmes 3
It's time to start investing in a quality magnifying glass and deerstalker, because Sherlock Holmes 3 is officially a go. Avengers: Infinity War actor Robert Downey Jr. is retiring his Iron Man suit to return as the famed detective, which follows up his appearance in 2011's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which racked up an impressive $545 million at the international box office, and 2009's Sherlock Holmes, which earned Downey Jr. a Golden Globe award.

There's still no word about which of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's mysteries the film will follow, or if Jude Law will come back to play Sherlock Holmes's trusty sidekick, Watson. Since he's signed on to two massive franchises at the moment - Disney's Captain Marvel and Warner Bros.'s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Holmes might have to search for someone else to bounce ideas off of.

'Sherlock Holmes 3' Set for Christmas 2020 Release; Here's What We Know

'Sherlock Holmes 3' Set for Christmas 2020 Release; Here's What We Know
The last time we saw Robert Downey Jr. as iconic detective Sherlock Holmes was in 2011. That year saw the release of the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and soon after we were supposed to get a third installment. Whether it was a matter of development troubles or RDJ's commitment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sherlock Holmes 3 didn't happen right away.

Now, maybe coincidentally, Downey is making his exit from the MCU and his decade-plus role as Iron Man, and Sherlock Holmes 3 is back on track. The sequel will finally hit theaters on Christmas Day 2020. That pits the next installment against the first Avatar sequel, which is perfect since the original Sherlock Holmes opened opposite the...

Sherlock Holmes 3 Gets Christmas 2020 Release Date

Sherlock Holmes 3 is finally happening. This is a movie that has had plenty of false starts and a lot of maybe, maybe not sort of stuff over the years, but it looks like we're finally going to see Robert Downey Jr. back as the legendary detective, with Jude Law at his side as Watson. Warner Bros. has officially locked down a Christmas Day 2020 release date for the movie, which gives them plenty of time to get everything squared away.

When last we heard, in terms of development, a writer's room was assembled in late 2016 to work on Sherlock Holmes 3. However, the script for the current version of the movie comes solely from Chris Brancato. He is primarily a TV writer, but has credits on prestigious shows such as Hannibal and Narcos. Currently, there are no story details or any sort of synopsis available for the new Sherlock Holmes movie,

Warner Bros. sets Sherlock Holmes 3 for 2020

It has been seven years since 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, with rumours of a third instalment diminishing over the course of time, but now in a twist worthy of the deerstalker sporting detective, Warner Bros. have announced a further outing in 2020.

According to Empire, only Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are confirmed to return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. There is no word on whether or not Guy Ritchie will return to direct, but considering 2009’s Sherlock Holmes made $524 million worldwide, with its sequel earning $545 million, it’s a formula the studio wouldn’t want to change.

Ritchie’s next project will be British crime caper Toff Guys, but before that we’ll get to see what he did with Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake, which will be released in May 2019.

Robert Downey Jr. still hoping to make Sherlock Holmes 3

For a time in 2016, it looked as though Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and director Guy Ritchie would be reuniting for a third instalment of the Sherlock Holmes movie series, only for the project to seemingly fizzle out.

While we’ve had nothing in the way of updates since, Downey has now revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he still hopes to return as Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective:

“I’m having a good time [doing The Voyage of Doctor Doolittle], though I decided to give myself, like, 40 additional challenges, like a Welsh accent — which even Welsh people say is hard to do,” said Downey when asked about his post-Avengers: Infinity War plans. “Then there’s all this stuff down the pike. We’re looking at another Sherlock Holmes, we’re developing Perry Mason for HBO. I still want to do Pinocchio.”

Robert Downey Jr. Still Wants Sherlock Holmes 3 to Happen

Sherlock Holmes 3 isn't dead yet. Robert Downey Jr., shortly after bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life with Iron Man, took up the mantle of Sherlock Holmes in the 2009 Guy Ritchie live-action version of the legendary detective. A sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, was released swiftly in 2011 and, there's been talk of finishing up the trilogy ever since, but nothing has come of it. However, Downey confirms that it's still on his to-do list, but will it really ever get done?

The Avengers: Infinity War star was recently speaking with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming Marvel event. At one point, he was asked what's next for him now that he's done filming Infinity War and Avengers 4. Discussing what he and his wife, Susan Downey, have on their plates with their production company, Team Downey, he revealed that Sherlock Holmes 3 is still being looked at, amongst other things.

Lobo Screenwriter Hopes to Capture Comic Character’s Spirit

Lobo screenwriter Jason Fuchs is hoping to capture the true spirit of the comic book character. The long-awaited film has been stuck in development hell for almost a decade, but it looks like it’s finally getting underway. Warner Bros. first attempted to bring the antihero – created by writer Roger Slifer and artist Keith Giffen in 1983 – to life on the big screen in 2009. Guy Ritchie was announced to be directing the project shortly before his Sherlock Holmes film hit theaters. But rather than move onto Lobo after the film released, Ritchie decided to helm Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows instead, thus shelving the project.

Hostiles Trailer Takes Christian Bale Through the Brave Frontier
Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has released the first trailer for Hostiles, which reunites director Scott Cooper and Christian Bale after their 2013 drama Out of the Furnace. The movie is slated to hit theaters in late December, which could make this an early favorite for the 2018 Oscars, although we still have quite some time before the awards season picture starts fully coming together. Still, this drama has been tearing through the prestige festival circuit, debuting at Telluride in September before appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival, Rome Film Fest and more, as it gets ready to debut at AFI Fest in Los Angeles next week.

Netflix's What Happened to Monday Changed 1 Giant Detail So Noomi Rapace Could Star

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - days of the week, sure, but also cinema's latest female ass-kickers du jour in What Happened to Monday, Netflix's brutal, bloody sci-fi romp starring Noomi Rapace. The Swedish actress stars in the streaming network's dystopian action flick, out Aug. 18, as identical septuplets named after each day of the week. All seven sisters have grown up living in hiding thanks to the government's law restricting families to one child only due to overpopulation, so their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) allows them out of the house only on the day corresponding with their name. They're able to maintain one public identity through adulthood, until a government agency led by the steely Glenn Close picks up on the scam. Monday doesn't return home after her day out, and soon enough her sisters savagely work their way through a long line of agents (and end up

Is Tom Hardy Being Considered For The Role Of Jafar In Disney's Aladdin Remake?

Following Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast, Disney has live-action remakes of its animated classics planned out farther than their Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. We're talking remakes for decades! The Little Mermaid, Dumbo, The Lion King, and Mulan are all in the works, and that's just the tip of the iceberg! Perhaps the most interesting project in the bunch is Aladdin, with Guy Ritchie set to direct.

Ritchie is known for his less than family-friendly fare such as Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla, though he has recently been specializing in PG-13 potential-franchise films, including both Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and one of this summer's many flops/critical disappointments, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Take this news with a grain of salt, as you should all news that comes from "a source" that isn't identified,

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword movie review: well I didn’t vote for him

MaryAnn’s quick take… Derivative, rote, devoid of heart and hope. Guy Ritchie has found no reason to retell Arthur’s story, or to render a mythic hero as a self-serving thug. I’m “biast” (pro): big fantasy fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There are no heroes anymore. There are self-centered bastards who accidentally stumble into heroics. There are sociopaths who abuse women and are lauded for it. There are criminals who receive official sanction for their antisocial behavior. And we’re meant to cheer for them all. But true heroes in the more traditional meaning of the word? Difficult to find onscreen at the moment.

There are no heroes anymore, just criminals and sociopaths we’re meant to cheer.

And now Guy Ritchie has engaged in an egregious de-heroing of cinema with his King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is a dull blockbuster that sends up dull blockbusters

The legendarium of King Arthur and the Knights Of The Round Table is rich in symbolism, mysticism, and visions, and so any attempt to narrowly rewrite it for modern tastes ends up coming across as a failure of imagination. Antoine Fuqua’s King Arthur was the last costly wannabe blockbuster to ask what Arthurian legend would be like if it were boring, and before that, there was Jerry Zucker’s First Knight. Maybe it’s a once-in-a-decade phenomenon, with the gritty (but not too gritty) 2010s iteration being King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie, the former Brit-crime hotshot who’s since gone on to a career of giving the Guy Ritchie treatment to uninspiring journeyman material (this film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows) with varying degrees of success. The best and worst thing ...
