    There is only one Sherlock Holmes:



    Jeremy Brett. Anyone else playing the Holmes role is beneath him, and can only stand in his shadow, and ape his performance.

    A 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel?
    For Warners, it's elementary

    By Steven Zeitchik and Jay A. Fernandez
    The Hollywood Reporter
    September 21, 2009

    A "Sherlock Holmes" sequel is afoot.



    Three months ahead of the release of its Robert Downey Jr. action pic, Warners is developing a new installment.
    The studio is poised to bring on Kieran and Michele Mulroney, the scribes who are penning its "Justice League: Mortal" tentpole, to pen a draft of the new tale. Brad Pitt has had discussions with producers to star as Holmes' nemesis Moriarty in the new pic, say people familiar with the project, though there is no deal in place for him to take the part.

    Susan Downey, Dan Lin, Joel Silver and Lionel Wigram produced "Holmes," a holiday release that, from well-received footage at Comic-Con, appears to be an action-heavy rendition of the world Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created.

    I've been waiting for this! As long as it isn't too modernized it should be excellent. Downey is a terrific actor. My only concern is that he has a very expressive face, especially his eyes, and that is not a characteristic of Sherlock Holmes. It might work well on film, though.

    The Holmes of the original stories is a fascinating man. Not wholly cerebral, he could kick a** if he needed to. Don't forget he was also a drug addict and had quite a dark side. Modernizing him isn't necessary, so let's hope they didn't really try. I don't think I could buy Brad Pitt as Moriarty, though.

    Unless this was a boxing match, which this is. In those circumstances shirtlessness is accepted, even in victorian society. (especially since it's a man thing and there are no ladies around. and the few that would be probably aren't considered ladies by the standards of their society.)

    Also you might want to take in mind this film is based on a comic book about holmes, so expect it to be a bit more fantastical than the usual depictions. Won't make it any less good.

    Also, reading up on the movie it looks like we might have some baritsu(which is mentioned in a holmes story, iirc.) which I'm all up for.
