Elementary, My Dear Ritchie!

Published 6 years ago by

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.

  1. that kinda sucks since his addiction made him the character he is (like Dr. House from the show…house who’s based on holmes)

  2. And he’s also not smoking a pipe this time because tobacco’s bad, mkay! ;)

    ZAR.

  3. So he can punch people in the face and stab them with a sword, but smoking and minor drug use are right out? Typical.

    Would love to see a really good Holmes movie, but remakes/reimaginings often worry me.

  5. The horror. The horror.

  6. Guy Ritchie? Seriously? Warner Brothers gets Sherlock Holmes and they give it to Guy Ritchie?
    I think I’ll be giving this one a pass.
