  • Sherlock Holmes 3 Gets A Fresh Start on Writing with James Coyne

Warner Bros. employ new writer to pen down the third part of the Sherlock Holmes franchise again.

It’s been five years since we saw our favourite detective and his sidekick in action. Sure Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have been staving off our Holmes qualms on TV, but the classic adaptation of Warner Bros. version featuring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law became a worldwide hit grossing millions of dollars. 

The second part of the Sherlock Holmes franchise, Game of Shadows featured the ultimate villain Professor Moriarty played by Jared Harris; became a bigger hit then the first movie and immediately garnered a need for a third part when the audience found out that Holmes had not died and was still alive.

It’s been five years and the Sherlock fans are still waiting for what happens next in the Downey’s Sherlock. The cast has expressed that they will return for another part of the movie. So where is the delay? The writing department. It was reported that Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce was set the task by the studio to pen the next installment of the series however, due to some reasons his version of the script has not been confirmed by any studio source.

Instead Warner Bros. recently hired James Coyne to pen down the new script for the third part from the start, according to Deadline. No one knows what Pearce version was like and what made the studio go for a new writer but we only hope that the story would be a stellar after the Game of Shadows. 

The movie will see the return of Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law and director Guy Ritchie. Ritchie/Wigram Productions, Team Downey, Silver Pictures, Dan Lin and Warner Bros will be fulfilling the production duties. The production schedule of the film is yet to be confirmed.
