Instead of simply calling the Sherlock Holmes sequel Sherlock Holmes 2 Warner Bros. has decided to call the movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The news comes from E! Online who aren’t particularly fond of it, but it sounds Sherlock Homles-esque enough for me.
So far we have few details on what Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows will involve (although the title may provide some hints). 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. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi Rapace plays a French Gypsy opposite Jude Law and Watson and Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes, with Stephen Fry playing his older brother Mycroft.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows will be released December 2011. What do you think of the title?
