Sherlock Holmes deets

07.25.2008

Empire squeezed a couple of details on the Guy Ritchie SHERLOCK HOLMES movie, catching up with producer Joel Silver and Ritchie himself:

“To a degree, we’re being as authentic as we can to the original books... He [Holmes] was more of an action man originally and I didn’t think it was possible to manifest in an efficient way previously in the productions they have. Now we have money and we have the technology so it seems like we should put it to the test. It was just a natural fit.”

Right now Ritchie is in a pretty precarious position, having made a couple of great films and a couple of real turds. His career could go either way at this point. Fortunately for him he has Robert Downey Jr on his side for this thing, since at this point he's so hot he could make a movie about how he boned your mom set to a Soulja Boy soundtrack and have it open huge at the box-office.
Extra Tidbit: Ritchie dropped out of school at 15.

Surprised this article wasn't called "Guy does Holmes".

Love Ritchie's work. Love anything he has on his mind. I personally don't understand how technology can better Sherlock's approach which i always thought was deliberately paced, but then again, that's why i'm interested in it.
Guy has something up his sleeve, i hope it's an ace.

Yeah no kidding he dropped out

...and it shows "Holmes was originally an action man". Did this SOB ever pick up one of his novels? Everybody needs to get off of this Sherlock Holmes kick, nothing done past the Jeremy Brett series will ever be as close to the source material, and for the love of God, STOP LETTING WILL FERRELL MAKE MOVIES BEFORE THEY DUMB THIS LITERARY WORK DOWN FOR MORON FRATHOUSE GUYS!!

I like that idea...

Haven't read much Conan Doyle, aside from "Hound of the Baskervilles," but I am somewhat familiar, through rumors mostly, about Holmes' habit. Unlikely if Downey Jr. is set to play him though.

And if Joel Silver is producing this thing, then that means Guy Ritchie is in a very good position to rebuild his credibility. Not to mention "RockNRolla" has switched out his old standbys for the latest in British and American character actors.
