Back when Robert Downey Jr and the guy who used to be married to Madonna got together to reboot Sherlock Holmes, expectations were not high. But two films and almost $1 Billion later, talks of a third film have understandably surfaced, especially when talking to the cast of the film.
Jude Law recently spoke to Empire and the topic if Sherlock Holmes 3 came up in conversation. While he didn’t give any major updates to the process, Law states that scheduling conflicts have complicated production of a third film, but it’s something everyone is trying to work through.
“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 … 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.”
Part of the problem with getting everyone together revolves around star Robert Downey Jr. and his commitment to Marvel. The Iron Man actor just starred in Iron Man 3 this past summer and is launching into production of Avengers: Age of Ultron this upcoming year.
But Law, like fans of the franchise, are hopeful that things will come together soon. The only real holdout is Downey Jr., but once he finishes Avnegers: Age of Ultron, it’s not going to be hard to convince anyone to jump on board Sherlock Holmes 3.
