He has been the most trusted accomplice of the World’s legendary fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, but it seems Jude Law aka Dr. Watson has gone on a different level altogether with the idea that he presented to director Guy Ritchie for the third installment in the “Sherlock Holmes” franchise.
According to Cinema Blend, whether or not fans need a third installment in the “Sherlock Holmes” franchise remains to be seen, however, they certainly will not mind watching Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock and Jude Law’s Dr. Watson going on another adventure. Guy Ritchie’s take on the franchise revolving around the middle aged Sherlock has always been an exciting one but when he heard Jude’s pitch for the third installment, he kind of was not in favor of it. Jude himself revealed that his pitch for the third movie revolved around time travel. That is something we wouldn’t really expect to see in a Victorian Era based story and perhaps that was the reason why the pitch startled both Robert Downey Jr. and Guy Ritchie.
Staying loyal to his pitch, Jude mentioned that he still thinks the idea is pretty good and hopes that the third installment could combine H.G. Wells and Sherlock Holmes. He was also amazed at the fact that the idea somehow leaked.
Fashion & Style added that Producer Lionel Wigrem mentioned in an interview that he and Ritchie are working on a script that will prove to be the best of the three. He commented that Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are very much interested in reprising their roles for a third part, which will add more joy to the fact that in near future fans will be looking at a third part in the “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. After having defeated Lord Blackwood and Professor Moriarty, it remains to be seen who the legendary detective will fight in the third installment.
