Guy Ritchie brought to life the famous tale of "Sherlock Holmes" for this new generation, aided by the talent of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. His sequel "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" racked up $545 million at the worldwide box office, so a third installment is expected.
Law, who plays Watson in the films, recently spoke out about what he hopes the third film has in store for them and what the team has in mind in terms of a direction.
Law stated, "I think Warners want it and there’s a lot of want from us as a team. We want it to be better than the other two. We want to make sure it’s smarter and cleverer, but in the same realm."
He continued, "With a certain superhero world to service, Robert Downey Jr.’s schedule is a puzzle that would confound Holmes himself. The roadmap to the third installment hasn’t proved straightforward. It’s a slow process. We’re all busy. So getting us together to try to nail that has taken a little bit longer than we had hoped."
