‘Sherlock Holmes’ to return in 2020
The studio said Monday that Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed detective alongside Jude Law as his counterpart Watson.
“Sherlock Homes” was a box office hit for the studio when it was released in 2009, just one year after Downey Jr. also made his debut as Iron Man. A sequel quickly followed in 2011. Combined, the first two films grossed north of $1 billion. Both were directed by Guy Ritchie.
A director has yet to be announced for “Sherlock Holmes 3,” however. The film is scheduled for a Christmas 2020 release. AP
