You were probably satisfied with the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes movie being titled Sherlock Holmes 2, but the studio damn sure wasn’t.
Guy Ritchie was nice enough to share some exclusive footage from “Sherlock Holmes 2″ with the good folks at “Entertainment Tonight,” and we were nice enough to hunt it down on the internet and share it with all of you.
To the left, my dear Watson, is a brand new still from the motion picture ‘Sherlock Holmes 2.’ Examine it carefully for evidence!
Warner Bros. is taking the holiday as an opportunity to give you a glimpse of what they’ve got planned for 2011. Here we have first looks at The Hangover 2, Sherlock Holmes 2, Horrible Bosses, Something Borrowed, Final Destination 5, and The Apparition (featuring Ashley Greene in her nightie).
Sweet belt-buckle, bro!!
There's been a lot of speculation about who would end up playing Professor Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes 2. The list of candidates for the role of Holmes's greatest enemy boasted big names such as Brad Pitt and Daniel Day Lewis. And now, the waiting is over. Without further ado, the man who will play Sherlock Holmes's archnemesis is…. "Mad Men's" Jared Harris. Wait, what? The nerd who got drunk and put a steak on his crotch? That's the guy we're talking about here? Shut the front door.
Latino Review broke the story first and I was skeptical. Then Collider confirmed the story and I was less leery, but this still seems like a long shot to me. Guy Ritchie does realize this movie will be playing in America, right?
Stephen Fry has joined the cast of Sherlock Holmes 2. Guy Ritchie's exxxtreme take on British literature will add Fry in the role of Holmes's older brother, Mycroft. Here's what the witty actor had to say of the part:
"I'm playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr., and that sort of part is fun, but just once in a while to play a genuine all round sort of lead figure with complexity and tragedy and wit and all the sort of things that Oscar [Wilde] had was a once in a lifetime thrill."
Okay. Can someone translate that from British to English for me and let me know if it was witty or not? Anyway, in the original stories, Mycroft was considered just as brilliant as Sherlock but was lazy and unwilling to prove his deductions. There's no word yet how the character will be shaped in the sequel nor any on whether or not he'll be an exxxtreme cage fighter. (Bleeding Cool)
There's a clue inside the baby.
The original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace has become the new "it" actress in Hollywood. She recently signed on to deliver death alongside Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and now she's secured a role in Sherlock Holmes 2. The logline is being kept under wraps, but Noomi is said to be playing a French Gypsy. It is unclear if the role is romantic in nature. One would think Holmes would be smart enough to not trust a Gypsy, but when they cast an evil spell on you at a street fair you can't resist them. It's the only way I can explain the atrocious lamp in my living room. (THR)
