sherlock holmes Elementary, My Dear Ritchie!Guy Ritchie hasn’t exactly had the best batting average as of late – Revolver and Swept Away, anyone? But maybe things will soon turn around for Mr. Madonna.

Ritchie has been tapped to direct Sherlock Holmes for Warner Brothers. Apparently, it’s based on a forthcoming comic-book that’s “more adventuresome and takes advantage of his skills as a boxer and swordsman.”

Okay. Just as long as Ritchie & Co. don’t attempt to “sexy up” the character. You know, suddenly Watson starts spatting out bad one-liners and what not.

But I can assume we won’t be seeing Holmes battling any cocaine addictions this time out.

Warner Brothers is aiming for a 2010 release.
