Sherlock Holmes 2 may start filming this June

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2010

News was out yesterday that Robert Downey Jr. had dropped out of Cowboys & Aliens. This was because of scheduling issues and so the possibility of a Sherlock Holmes sequel was raised – the first one, which I thought was excellent and one of the best versions of Holmes on the big screen, had a perfect set up for a sequel.

Today have heard that a sequel is being fast-tracked based on the success of the first film. (Sherlock’s worldwide gross is fast approaching $300 million.) Michael Robert Johnson, Anthony Peckham and Simon Kinberg wrote the first film butWarner Bros. commissioned a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney back in September and is now sorting out the cast for a June start date, exactly the time when Cowboys & Aliens is set to begin principal photography.

Great news as I can’t wait to see some more of Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as Holmes and Watson. No word on whether Guy Ritchie will be back to direct, but I imagine he will be after the success of the first.

What do you want to see in the sequel?
