And now we know SHERLOCK HOLMES II contains a scene in which Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO'S Noomi Rapace are nearly blown to bits in a forest. It also appears Downey and Law will suffer minor head injuries - though that could just be a smudge of dirt on Downey's noggin. Hard to tell. We'll just have to wait until December 16, 2011 to find out for sure!
In case you've forgotten, Ms. Rapace will play a French gypsy in the Guy Ritchie-directed sequel. The film will also feature Stephen Fry as Sherlock's older brother Mycroft, and Jared Harris as Holmes's archenemy, Professor James Moriarty. The screenplay is by Kieran and Michele Mulroney (of the Dermot Mulroneys). And I second Devin Faraci's call for a more artful title than SHERLOCK HOLMES II. Should be SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE... WHATEVER-THE-CENTRAL-MYSTERY-OF-THE-FILM-IS.
