For those of you who are interested I thought I would let you know that there is a huge spread on Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows in the current issue of Empire magazine (October 2011).

The article is entitled "Get Smarter" and says "Reinventing Sherlock Holmes took some balls, but for the sequel you've got to go bigger, better and ballsier still. With a touch of swagger, Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, and Director Guy Ritchie return to the scene of the crime. Now with added Moriarty ...".

The film will be released in the UK on December 16.

Starring: Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock Holmes, Jude Law as Dr John Watson, Jared Harris as Moriarty, and Stephen Fry as Mycroft Holmes.

I will not be talking much about this film I am afraid. There is no way in hell that Robert Downey Jr is Sherlock Holmes. He is the antithesis of everything I ever imagined Holmes to be so I am afraid I will be giving the film a wide berth.

However, I know there are many Sherlockians and Holmesians who love this version too so they are welcome to post about it here.
