The sequel is coming! Robert Downey, Jr. is returning as everyone’s most favorite pipe-toting detective. He’s bringing back Jude Law as Watson and Rachel McAdams, too. But some new friends are joining in on the caper this time around and it seems that the rumours that Brad Pitt would appear are false.
French actor Gilles Lellouche is playing a villain. “I’m thrilled, and I’ll play a nice bad guy,” Lellouche said. This will be his first major Hollywood role.
Mad Men‘s Jared Harris will portray the biggest Sherlock villain of all, his arch-nemesis, Moriarty and Stephen Fry is also a Holmes as Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft.
Swedish actress Noomi Repace of the original Girl with The Dragon Tattoo is also in the film.
It is scheduled for a December 16th, 2011 release.
