Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law starrer ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ has been delayed by a year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third film in Warner Bros’ Sherlock Holmes franchise will now release during year-end holidays in 2021. The film was earlier scheduled for release on 2020 Christmas.
The ‘Aladin’ director Guy Ritchie had directer the last two parts of Sherlock Holmes franchise but it is yet not known if he will return for Sherlock Holmes 3 or not.
Last year in August, Jude revealed some details about the film while speaking to Entertainment Weekly. He said, “We hope to propel the story forward. As always, the essence of the story is their codependency. We’re going to examine — since it’s been several years since we’ve seen them — we’re going to play up the fact that they haven’t seen each other for a long time either.”
Robert Downey Jr will return as British detective Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law will play his partner, Dr. John Watson.
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and it is the most adapted literary character ever and has seen numerous adaptations over the decades.
Professor James Moriarty played by Jared Harris, appeared as the antagonist in the second part while Mark Strong’s Lord Henry Blackwood challenged Holmes in the first film.
