LOS ANGELES: A month after Robert Downey Jr revealed that the third “Sherlock Holmes” movie is being planned, producer Joel Silver confirms that the film, to be directed by Guy Ritchie, could start its production later this year.
Silver, originally promoting “The Nice Guys” in an interview, supported Downey claim and also hinted that more “Sherlock Holmes” movies may arrive in the future.
“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,” Silver said.
“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.”
Downey Jr, Law and Ritchie’s respective schedules have been one big problem that keeps “Sherlock Holmes 3” from happening.
Downey Jr has been busy with his role as Tony Stark a.k.a. “Iron Man” in Marvel’s movies while Law and director Ritchie are working on “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur”.
