According to Variety, Jude law is in negotiations to join Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Strong in the Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. If these negotiations all go according to plan, Law will be playing Dr. Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ sidekick.
Law recently wrapped shooting Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, the movie that marks Heath Ledger’s last official role. However, apart from that Jude Law hasn’t been in anything that memorable recently. Maybe this role alongside Robert Downey Jr. will be what he needs to reassure people he is still acting.
