Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law recently sat down for an interview on the set of Sherlock Holmes 2, which is once again directed by Guy Ritchie and has been filming in London, Paris and Switzerland over recent months. The pair mention how Holmes and Watson are in much deeper trouble this time round, and get a jolly good beating.
From Hero Complex:
From the looks of things, that latter task won’t be particularly easy, given that Ritchie appears to be continuing with the gritty, stylized approach he adopted for the first movie. “I think one of the most exciting things in this one is the fear level,” says Law. “We get pretty kicked around. Just look at the state of us.”
“Unlike last time, where Holmes kept getting Watson into trouble,” adds actor Downey, “this time Watson is getting Holmes out of trouble, and they’re both in deeper trouble than I think the audience could have imagined we could go…. All manner of nastiness has just occurred.”

So far we have no details on what Sherlock Holmes 2 will involve, but Mad Men actor Jared Harris has been cast as Moriarty (the shadowy figure who was revealed to be the mastermind behind Rachel McAdams’ dirty work in the first film), so the storyline will likely revolve around his character and his other schemes.
