Unlike other news I’ve posted about Guy Ritchie’s retooled Sherlock Holmes, this latest might actually carry the distinction of having a grain a truth. If not, blame Variety:
Law is expected to close a deal shortly to play Watson, the super-sleuth’s sidekick. The film will incorporate the classic tales written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as the comic book “Sherlock Holmes.” Studio is still casting some of the principal roles, including the villain, Blackwood.
Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law, Mark Strong. I hope the concept lives up to the cast.
