Sherlock 3 Script Currently In Development

There hasn't been any shortage of Sherlock Holmes in the small screen, with Elementary doing quite well and the BBC series Sherlock coming with a series special coming, things are looking pretty good for the world's greatest detective. That being said, fans have missed another version of Sherlock, one played by Robert Downey Jr. in Guy Ritchie's 2011 film. Not to worry though, because it seems like a third movie is on the works.

            Speaking to IGN, Lionel Wigram - the producer of the two Sherlock Holmes films, talked about their plans for the franchise's future:

"We’re working on a Sherlock Holmes 3 script. I think we would all love to do one if we could come up with something that really was really going to knock it out of the park and was going to be the best of the three. So we’re working on that – it’s quite hard to do."

            Wigram also states that both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are "very very" interested in returning to their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson respectively. It should be noted that working on a script doesn't mean it's getting a filming location soon, but fans should be glad to know that the studio still has plans for a third Sherlock movie. Wigram and his team would definitely want to get the script correctly to get the best Sherlock story of the series. Plus the fact that the stars have been quite busy currently, with RDJ's role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Ritchie currently promoting his Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie and soon to be on the filming location of the King Arthur remake that he is directing. It's hard to know if Ritchie does plan on returning in the director's chair for this movie.

            With plenty of stories yet to be told about everyone's favorite detective, it's good to know that the writers are taking their time working on the best script for the third and what might possibly be the last in the series of Sherlock films (played by RDJ). For now, fans would have to be content with watching Robert Downey Jr.'s role as Tony Stark in the Marvel movies and Guy Ritchie's take on the 1960's spy TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. And if you're itching for more Sherlock films while you wait, catch BBC Sherlock's special when it comes out later this year and Elementary's 4th season to be announced soon. We'll keep you updated when more news comes out of Sherlock Holmes 3.
