It seems Jude Law is ready to do another installment of the Sherlock Holmes franchise, but Law said that while he and Robert Downey Jr. are into the idea of returning to the eccentric British detective saga, it’s still a long ways from happening.
“There’s certainly talk of it and I know there’s a script being played around with, but Downey’s a busy boy and I’m a busy boy so we’ll see,” Law said. “But we want to [do another one]. We’re a very happy team and we have a lot of fun and we also think there’s still a lot of legs in the duo.”
Warner Bros. is also keen on doing a third film as well. The first installment in which Downey plays the title character, while Law takes on the role of Dr. John Watson, pulled in a massive $209 million-plus – and that was just in the U.S. The 2011 follow-up (both directed by Guy Ritchie incidentally) still cashed in with an impressive nearly $187 million domestically (and well-over a half-billion dollars worldwide).
I’m sure RDJ can have a talk with his wife Susan (she produced the films) to get the ball rolling. Might I suggest making Hound Of The Baskerville?
