Warner Bros has got Drew Pearce writing the the screenplay for the third Sherlock Holmes film. The deal hasn’t yet been sealed but it will be soon. He’s also the screenwriter for Iron Man 3, so it looks like he’s in on the third film of both of Robert Downey Jr.‘s big franchise movies.
“But Sherlock Holmes 2 isn’t even out yet,” you say? No shit, Sherlock; they’re ready to push this as far as they can to milk the franchise for all the money it can bring in. Hopefully these films won’t fall into the typical “the sequel is a piece of shit” trap.
