Warner Bros. has set a release date of December 2011 for Sherlock Holmes 2, with filming expected to begin later this year. The news comes from THR who saw the date on a slide during a presentation by Warner chairman and CEO Barry Meyer this week.
Not much is known about the sequel thus far, although Robert Downey Jr. said last month that Holmes will be venturing out of London next time round, saying we’ll see “a bit of Paris, a bit of Switzerland by the end, if I’m not mistaken.”
Downey also said that he doesn’t know whether Rachael McAdams will be returning as Irene Adler as the character only appeared in one of the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. He’ll know as soon as the script is delivered, however.
I can’t see why they’d not want her back. She may have been arrested at the end of the film but that’s nothing Holmes can’t get around.
