Robert Downey Jr. He could be back as Sherlock Holmes sooner than expected. The Marvel Studios star became the world’s most famous detective in 2009, just a year after he first played Tony Stark in Iron Man. Now that the iconic hero has been left behind, the actor is ready to return to the other franchise.
A few months ago, director Guy Ritchie revealed that a third film of the saga was already in development but that everything was up to Downey Jr. It’s been over 10 years since the second movie was released, so fans have been giving up on that one. Get to see the profile again. But now, producer Amanda Burrell has shared some great news.
While speaking with The Wrap for their podcast, she revealed the current state of the film:
“Here’s what I can say… Before that we had lunch with Robert… It was a very specific topic of conversation, so yeah. It’s in the hopper. We’ll do it when it’s right with the right people, but it’s a priority for the company and a priority for Robert.”
Of course her statement doesn’t mean they’ll start working on the movie right away, but it does give fans some hope that they want to work on it and that the main star wants to come back.
