Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are making another ‘Sherlock Holmes’ movie

Nearly a decade after the previous instalment, Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes movie franchise is being revived.

Warner Bros has announced a third Sherlock Holmes film, with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law returning as Holmes and Watson.

The movie will open in cinemas on 25 December 2020, nine years after the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

The first movie in the series was the 8th highest grossing film of 2009.

It has not yet been confirmed if director Guy Ritchie will be back to helm Sherlock Holmes 3. He is currently busy working on Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake.

The first two Sherlock Holmes movies are available on DVD on Amazon.
