The first one isn’t even out yet and already I know the Brad Pitt rumor isn’t gonna die until the sequel hits the theaters. The interwebs went crazy again today with the news that there is, in fact, a sequel planned for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. (I’ve got news for you, if the first one doesn’t deliver, there’s no guarantee it’ll get made. RocknRolla anyone? Ritchie’s already written the sequel. Since the original made less than $1 million domestically for its AMERICAN producers-the same producers of Sherlock by the way-I wouldn’t hold my breath on that despite the fact that it did relatively well in Europe and the original cast is willing.)
In any case, this news meant that the Pitt rumors immediately started to recirculate. I really, really, really, hope they are not true. (Chances are they are not. It’s probably a cleverly conceived marketing ploy. According to imdb, Pitt’s got 14 projects currently in development. I don’t know how many of those he’s acting in.) Although I bought him as Pikey boxer Mickey in “Snatch” and I almost bought him as Aldo Raine in “Inglourious Basterds”, for the most part all I see in whatever he’s in, is Brad Pitt. Time will tell. In the meantime I’m really looking forward to Ritchie’s take on the Holmes/Watson relationship. Not to mention Mark Strong as Lord Blackwood!! Yeah baby!
