Robert Downey Jr. ready for 'Sherlock Holmes'



Tbdrobertdowney071108 While he and Madonna may or may not be on the outs, Guy Ritchie is moving full speed ahead to direct a new feature with none other than hot-again Hollywood type Robert Downey Jr., Variety reports. The picture? Why, Sherlock Holmes, our dear Juice*heads. Who needs a British guy to play that role?

This is not to be confused with a Columbia production starring Brit Sacha Baron Cohen as the detective and Will Ferrell as Dr. Watson. Once again, it's good to see La-La Land really branching out in the range of stories it's trying to tell. No, it sounds like they're going to go fairly serious with this one. At least, as serious as the guy who made Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels can get.
