Jude Law Offers Update On SHERLOCK HOLMES 3
The actor, who plays Dr. John Watson in Warner Bros.' highly successful Sherlock Holmes film franchise, offers a brief update on the potential third installment in the series, saying that he and co-star Robert Downey Jr. still have "a lot of legs".
Speaking with Collider at the Toronto Film Festival while promoting Anna Karenina, actor Jude Law offers an update on the status of Warner Bros.' third Sherlock Holmes film. Last year, the studio hired Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce to pen a third installment in the Guy Ritchie-directed series, but word on the threequel's progress has been rather quiet ever since. While not saying much, Law expresses his excitement for the potential third adventure of Holmes (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and Dr. Watson.
“No I don’t [when filming begins] yet. I mean there’s certainly talk of it and I know there’s a script being played around with, but Downey’s a busy boy and I’m a busy boy so we’ll see. But we want to [do another one]. We’re a very happy team and we have a lot of fun and we also think there’s still a lot of legs in the duo.”
With last year's Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows grossing nearly $544 million at the worldwide box office (more than the first film), a third movie is pretty much inevitable. It's possible that we won't see this threequel for a couple years or so, since Law recently committed to Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. As he said, he and Downey are mulling over several projects for the next few years. Do you want to see a Sherlock Holmes 3?
