During the press tour for Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that Sherlock Holmes 3 Could Start Filming This Year!!!
Find out more details on Sherlock Holmes 3 on the flip…
We understand why Robert Downey Jr. wants to move on from Iron Man since he will be in the upcoming Spider Man movie and other Marvel movies.
Marvel Movies tend to keep celebrities very busy, especially when they’re the lead, but Marvel also keeps the celebs working and paychecks coming in. Anyways, while Robert Downey Jr. was talking about Captain America: Civil War he dropped a tid bit for Sherlock Holmes fans, saying that he’s been in talks with Guy Ritchie.
We haven’t seen a Sherlock Holmes film since 2011, so a part 3 would be great. This came as a surprise given that Downey Jr. has a very busy schedule ahead of him by way of the two Avengers: Infinity War films that will be shooting back to back.
To help confirm Downey’s reveal, producer Joel Silver confirmed that cameras could indeed be rolling on Sherlock Holmes 3 by the end of the year.
Silver told Collider:
“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. 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.”
Since it’s taken for Sherlock 3 to get off the ground, would this be a trilogy-ending installment? According to Silver, not in the slightest.
“I hope [it’s not the last one]. I don’t think so. How many Bond films have they made? As long as there’s a character, we can work with it. It’s not an end story. We can keep going, as long as people want to do it. It’s [the actor’s] call. They have to say, ‘Okay, I’m ready to go.’ I read about them making another Bad Boys. If they want to do it, then you try to get it done.”
More Sherlock Holmes movies would indeed be fun.
What do you think about Sherlock Holmes 3 and possible 4, 5 and 6?
