Also known as Sherlock Holmes 2, is an upcoming action/mystery film directed by Guy Ritchie and produced by Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin. It is a sequel to the 2009 film Sherlock Holmes based on the character of the same name created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The screenplay is by Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney. Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, respectively, as the duo join forces to outwit and bring down their most cunning adversary, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris).
Set in 1891 — a year after the last film’s events — the sequel shows Holmes, and his longtime trusted associate, Dr. Watson, as they match wits with their arch-nemesis, the criminal genius Moriarty (Harris). Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays the rifle-toting gypsy Sim and Stephen Fry (V for Vendetta) stars as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft Holmes.
