Opening in theaters on December 16th is the long awaited sequel to '2009s hit action mystery Sherlock Holmes, entitled Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Director Guy Ritchie returns to helm the second film of the franchise that once again stars Oscar-nominee Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man 2) in the title role and fellow Oscar nominee Jude Law (Hugo) as his faithful sidekick Dr. Watson. Also making a return are actors Rachel McAdams (Midnight in Paris), Eddie Marsan (Hancock), and Kelly Reilly (Me and Orson Welles), who are joined by series newcomers Noomi Rapace (Prometheus), Stephen Fry (V For Vendetta), and Jared Harris (TV's Mad Men) as the villain Professor Moriarty.
IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down and chat with writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Justice League) about their work on Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The writers discussed the new film, joining the franchise, the "bromance" between Holmes and Watson, limiting Rachel MacAdams' role and creating a new female character, developing Moriarty's evil scheme, and introducing Sherlock's brother Mycroft Holmes.
In 2009, Warner Bros and director Guy Ritchie made Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's masterful detective and his regular sidekick appealing to moviegoers by adding no shortage of punching, kicking, explosions, and stuntwork to a mystery in Sherlock Holmes. The sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is just over two months from hitting theaters, so promotion for the two-fisted adventures of Holmes and Dr. Watson should be ramping up in the very near future. Today, a sign of things to come are two new character posters featuring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as the vaguely homoerotic investigatorial duo.
