The new Sherlock Holmes movie should have been released this year, 10-years from the first one but was pushed to 2020… and now it got pushed again… to Dec 2021.
Although it’s sad for all the fans, because the shooting of the film weren’t started yet, Warner Bros and Village Roadshow Pictures had no choice didn’t really have a choice but to delay it. Moreover, there is no director yet.
With over $1 billion at the box office for the first two films, a third movie sounds like the right thing to do but the fact that its been pushed back for the second time, makes people to worry it will be canceled.
Not all going bad for the franchise – Narcos co-creator, Chris Brancato, is reportedly working on the script for the final film.
In the last film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, we understand that Sherlock committed suicide in order to keep is partner, Watson, safe. But at the last seen we see that Sherlock, Played by Robert Downey Jr., is still alive.
After the debacle which was the Sherlock Holmes 2, fans of the detective film would be hoping that the third part would be better.
It’s only a matter of time before the Sherlock Holmes 3 hit cinemas worldwide, Robert Downey Jr. has told Entertainment Weekly in an interview.
The Iron Man star was asked by the magazine what is on his plate after the two upcoming Marvel blockbusters – “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers 4”. The always in-demand movie star replied to this question by pointing to a busy itinerary.
“First of all the missus is front and center with Joe Roth producing Doolittle,” said Downey about Universal Studio’s ‘’The Voyage of Doctor Doolittle’’.
“Then there’s all this stuff down the pike,” Downey added. “We’re looking at another Sherlock Holmes, we’re developing Perry Mason for HBO. I still want to do Pinocchio.”
This is the first time that we’ve heard from Downey talking about the Sherlock Holmes series since the last installment of the movie, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, was released in 2011.
In that sequel, Holmes traveled to Austria with his pal Dr. Watson to solve the mystery murder of Austria’s crown prince. The movie ended with quite a cliffhanger, as the whereabouts of Holmes were unknown. It means that the Sherlock Homes 3 would have plenty to build on.
History of Sherlock Homes Series
Sherlock Homes has earned an entry into the Guinness Book of Records for the most frequently played literary character in the history of movies. Over the years, more than 200 films have been made on the novel, with 70 actors playing the role of Sherlock Holmes.
The novel, which is based on around 60 stores, portrays different avatars of Sherlock Holmes. Apart from showing him as a bare-knuckle fighter and a swordsman, it also shows him a bromantic action hero. Sherlock is also shown as a master of disguise as he impersonates everything from a plumber, bookseller, and a priest, to a groom, a seaman, and even a woman.
In addition to Holmes, there is another important character in the movie, Dr. Watson, with whom Sherlock shares a bromance.The major duty of the Dr. in the movie is to carry out autopsies of the dead bodies to give Sherlock the extra edge that he craves to solve mystery riddles.
Finally, while Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed the return of Sherlock Holmes 3, he hasn’t mentioned any return date of the movie. It means that we might expect the film to come out either in late 2019 or early 2020.
