You know what I like? FUN. Fun movies to be precise and I can say that the Robert Downey Jr. version of Sherlock Holmes was all sorts of fun! Listening to him explain in a cold and calculated way how he’s about to break the arms of a baddie was a great deal of awesome.
Also the first two movies were directed by Guy Ritchie and he is almost always amazing (we won’t mention Man from U.N.C.L.E). I often forget that Downey is allowed to play roles other than Tony Stark and when he does he is usually brilliant. Remember this is the man that was nominated for an Oscar and won a BAFTA for his performance as Charlie Chaplin in the movie surprisingly called, well, Chaplin.
So I am delighted to hear that Sherlock Holmes 3 is still on the cards. However, according to Deadline there has been a change in the camp as we say goodbye to screenwriter Drew Pearce ( he was the writer for Iron Man 3 so this may be a blessing) and hello to James Coyne.
Coyne may not be a household name, having mainly worked as writer, producer and actor on straight to DVD action movies, but he is quickly building a high profile rep having just penned WB’s new Treasure Island adaptation and also being attached to a feature film adaptation of Rob Liefeld’s comic book Avengelyne, which has set Gina Carano to star.
As for Sherlock Holmes 3, when the movie will be out is another story but Warner Bros. has confirmed that the original team of Downey, Jude Law and Ritchie returning so more fun is on the way!
