Sherlock Holmes 3: The third part of Guy Ritchie’s franchise Sherlock Holmes was confirmed back in 2012. Fans have been waiting a long time for Sherlock Holmes 3.
There were talks about a new entry in the franchise, barely after a month Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows hit the cinemas. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is probably the most depicted literary character. It would not be surprising if we see a little bit of his character in the third part. It’s not a surprise that the third part is taking this long given that both the main leads, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have been so busy with other shootings. And then there’s this world pandemic.
Sherlock Holmes 3 Release Date
The original release date set for the third part by Warner Bros. was December 25th, 2020 but it has now been pushed back to 2021. At the time of the delay, nobody knew it was a farsighted movie but now it is clear. Since the movie has been pushed back, the director Dexter Fletcher has stated, “That’s sort of sitting on the back burner at the moment until it becomes clear where the world is at and what’s going to happen.”
Looking at the conditions all over the world, talking about Sherlock Holmes 3 and The Saint (another film that he has in production) Fletcher said, “They’re both up against the same dilemma, the same issue that we all [have]: how do you get large groups of people together to create something and then shift them all around the world? And what do you do with actors that are in a love scene? It’s complicated.”
The Sherlock Holmes Franchise has always been a Christmas occurrence. The first part was released on December 25, 2009, and the second part was released on December 16, 2011. The script for the third part is being written by Chris Brancato. As of now, the date set for the release of Sherlock Holmes 3 is December 25, 2021, but we are not too sure that it will stick.
The cast of Sherlock Holmes 3-Who is returning for the third part?
Sherlock Holmes the movie is nothing without a little bromance of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law so we for sure know that these two players are returning for the third party. There is no guarantee that Kelly Riely who plays Mary (Watson’s wife), Stephen Fry who plays Mycroft (Sherlock’s brother), or Eddie Marson who plays Inspector Lestrade will return for the third party. We are not too sure about Jared Harris who plays Moriarty’s return either.
What will be the plot of Sherlock Holmes 3?
In one of the interviews, Robert said that the whole team wants Sherlock Holmes to be the greatest series of all time so obviously, the expectations from the script are too high. Hence, the time that the movie is taking to be shot should be worth it. The biggest question this time is which of Sherlock’s nemeses will he be after in the third part of the movie?
The first part of Sherlock Holmes had mystical would-be world dominator Lord Henry Blackwood played by Mark Strong who Sherlock and Watson battle. The second outing showed us Professor James Moriarty, Sherlock’s arch-nemesis. provided that Sherlock was supposed to have killed Moriarty at the end of the second film, there are fewer chances of Moriarty returning in the third film but then again Sherlock was supposed to die in the same incident too and then reappear in Watson’s office but that clearly didn’t happen so we are completely clueless about what will the third movie be about.
