Sherlock Holmes sequel in the works and Brad Pitt may be Moriarty

Posted by LiveFor on September 22, 2009

pittGuy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes film already has sequel plans. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Risky Business blog, a sequel to Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes is already in the works, with Brad Pitt in negotiations to come aboard. This will be the first time they have worked together since Snatch.

I mentioned back in August that there was a rumour knocking about that Pitt was going to feature at the end of the new film as Moriarty. The studio dismissed that at the time. However, the news today is that Pitt would play longtime Holmes enemy Moriarty in the proposed sequel, althought a deal has not been reached yet. Kieran and Michele Mulroney were being brought on to write the sequel. It was said that the original cast would likely return, as might Guy Ritchie return to direct.

Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong, Kelly Reilly, Eddie Marsan and will open on 25th December.
