You know Sherlock Holmes has really gone Hollywood when there's talk of a sequel before the first movie even hits the theaters.
The new Guy Richie-directed film starring Robert Downey, Jr. won't hit theaters until December 25th, but there's already chatter that the game's afoot with regard to a follow-on film. According to the Risky Biz Blog:
"Warners is keen on developing new franchises, with Holmes -- with its broad fan base and rich source material -- considered a very appealing candidate."
That should please Sherlockians to no end. But we're months and months away from casting and script development, which is usually where our hopes are dashed.
