Sherlock Holmes 3 Starts Filming This Year

It looks as though ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ will be with us sooner than we thought…

According to ‘Sherlock Holmes’ star Robert Downey Jr, the third instalment begins filming later this year… and he sounds rather excited.

“We’re talking about it right now,” he told Shortlist. “If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week.”

“When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook,” he said. “[So] we’ll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m so excited about it.”

Of course, Robert Downey Jr is one of the busiest men in Hollywood… and after signing up for the upcoming ‘Spider-Man’ reboot, he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

In fact, his recent Marvel dealings will see him appear in the new ‘Spider-Man’ movie, as well as the upcoming ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Infinity War: Part One and Two’.

It’s a wonder he has time for anything else…

But then, Downey did reportedly admit that his busy schedule has impacted the production of ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’… even if it is due to finally get started.

‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ will star Robert Downey Jr. as the iconic detective, with Jude Law presumably set to return as Doctor Watson. Rachel McAdams is also rumoured to be back as Irene Adler after also joining the Marvel universe with the upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’.

Let’s just hope we get a glimpse on set in the coming months.
