Sherlock fans can call off the search for clues... it looks like 'Sherlock 3' is most definitely on its way!
A third film has been rumoured since the release of popular 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' but has not yet been officially confirmed. However, we're pretty sure we can hedge our bets on the movie coming out sooner rather than later.
Film producer David Lin let the cat out of the bag by admitting that a script is definitely in development:
"Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) is working on the script," he confirmed to Collider. This is great news - up until this we had no confirmation that things were moving forward.
"It's a high priority for the studio and for all the filmmakers involved.
"We want to make the right movie. We got a great response to the second movie, and frankly the Moriarty character sets such a high bar that we want to make sure we're telling the right story for the third."
It was reported last year that director Guy Ritchie had signed on for a third film,starring Robert Downey jr and Jude Law, and is keen to base the new instalment in Hollywood rather than the UK. Something about that doesn't seem quite right, but we'll go with it...
