Itty Bitty Bit of Possible Info on RDJ!Holmes 3

We’ve gotten precious little information about the phantom third “Sherlock Holmes” film in the Robert Downey Jr. franchise. I mean, we’ve gotten the casual “Oh yeah, I’d love to do it if I’m asked but I know nothing because Hollywood,” from Jude Law and whatnot, but here’s what I just stumbled across:

“[Film producer Lionel Wigram] said: ‘We’re working on it. I think we have a really good idea, a good concept for it, and we’re working on it with Robert and Susan and everybody. We’ve had many, many meetings and we have a really good writer who is engaged.'” ~ from Lionel Wigram teases’ new Sherlock Holmes film.

Is that “good writer” Drew Pearce? Wigram is later quoted as saying everyone’s working on trying to come up with a “fantastic” plot. Hmm. I suppose I appreciate that, but it sounds like a stock response.

Also, as I was looking to credit this article, I noticed that 1) there was no byline and 2) the “article” gave no context. Who was interviewing Wigram to get these quotes? Where was this happening? Context, anyone?? Well, turns out the exact same “article” appears on at least two websites, so I’m smelling a press release-type situation. Why is Wigram throwing out such lame, teasing information? Is anyone appeased by this? Or is it the simple fact that at least someone is actively talking about the possibility of a third movie?

Call me when Jude Law officially signs on. 😀

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Probably waiting for RDJ to clear his stupid Iron Man schedule. Heck with that. Just have the movie be about Watson. LOL

    Haha! Curiouser and curiouser! Hmm! Well, I’m sure it will happen eventually. I don’t see them giving up a chance at making money, so something has to happen. Hopefully. Possibly. It better! ScarletSherlock is probably right, though, about it being about RDJ’s schedule. And maybe they are also having writing issues. Hmm.

    I’m with you, SS: Chuck Holmes and make this a Watson-fest of epic proportions!

    And NoirAlice, I agree — money talks. The first two movies were financially successful as far as I know, so they wouldn’t pass up a chance to make more coin.

    You know, as far as plot goes, I’m not even sure what would constitute “fantastic” to me. I guess I can think of Canon stories I particularly like, but that would maybe seem like an emo let down after the whole Reichenbach Falls business in the last movie.
