Just Jared has some bromantic set photos of Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law riding in a carriage from the upcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel, Sherlock Holmes 2. Guy Ritchie returns to direct the sequel and avoid making a promised sequel to RocknRolla, which is set for a December 16, 2011 release. Along with the two leads, Rachel McAdams returns as love interest Irene Adler, Kelly Reilly as Watson’s girlfriend and Geraldine James as Holmes’ landlady. New to the franchise are actor/comedian/renaissance man Stephen Fry as brother Mycroft Holmes and Mad Men’s Jared Harris as Moriarty.
Amazing that it doesn’t have some goofy, ostentatious title like Sherlock Holmes: Rise of Moriarty. While the original was nothing groundbreaking, it was fun to watch the Downey and Law goof on one another for two hours, and I expect about the the same amount of entertainment as the first. But with more explosions, I’m sure.
