Dexter Fletcher In Talks To Direct ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ For Warner Bros.

Now that RDJ is available, the game is afoot once again - with a surprising development: According to Variety, Dexter Fletcher - not Guy Ritchie - has signed on to direct Sherlock Holmes 3. Both were highly successful, with the first grossing $524 million globally and the second bringing in $545.4 million worldwide.

Per Variety, "Warner Bros. had always planned on making a third film".

Downey Jr. will reprise the role of Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law will reportedly return to play Holmes' partner Dr. John Watson. However, Downey's busy schedule as Iron Man prevented any new filming for the series.

The film will be written by Narcos co-creator Chris Brancato, with Joel Silver, Susan Downey, Dan Lin, and Lionel Wigram as producers.

Fletcher finished Bohemian Rhapsody in the wake of director Bryan Singer's firing from the project, a movie which saw $900M-plus at the global B.O. with four Oscar wins including Rami Malek for best actor.

Chris Brancato is now working on the script for the film, which is set to open on December 21, 2021, which will be slightly over ten years since Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opened.

The film will be a co-production between WB and Village Roadshow. He also directed "Rocketman" star Taron Edgerton in "Eddie the Eagle".
