Rocketman director, Dexter Fletcher, has signed on to direct the third installment of the Sherlock Holmes movie franchise. Fletcher will take on directing duties from Guy Ritchie who directed both Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows.
Robert Downey, Jr. will return as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law will also reprise his role as Professor Watson. Sources have reported that Warner Brothers had hopes of moving forward with a third movie but were not yet able due to Downey’s previous commitments to the Marvel franchise. Sherlock Holmes 3 is scheduled to release in December 21, 2021, ten years after the second installment of the franchise hit theaters.
