As we reported earlier this year, comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly will join forces yet again as a comedic version of Sherlock Holmes in HOLMES & WATSON. They are definitely a formidable pair, having shown amazing chemsitry together in their previous collaborations TALLADEGA NIGHTS and, most notoriously, STEP BROTHERS. Are they our generations Crosby and Hope? Only time will tell. 

In any case, the film is moving forward, and three more people have joined the cast: Rob Brydon (TRISTRAM SHANDY: A COCK AND BULL STORY), Kelly Macdonald (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN), and Rebecca Hall (IRON MAN 3). Bryon will be playing Scotland Yard Inspector Lestrade; Macdonald is playing the housekeeper of the famous 221B Baker Street building, Mrs. Hudson; and Hall will be portraying Dr. Grace Hart, the first female doctor to practice in London. If I had to bet, I'd wager Hall is being set up as the requisite love interest - though let's hope she's more fleshed out than Rachel McAdams was as the (pseudo) love interest in the Robert Downey, Jr. version.

No word yet on who will play Moriarty though. Maybe Adam Scott?

Either way, HOLMES & WATSON will sleuth into theaters sometime in 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Sacha Baron Cohen was originally attached to star in this iteration of Sherlock Holmes.

Wait. I thought the Robert Downey, Jr. version WAS the comedic version of Sherlock Holmes.

These two are great together but their brand of comedy seems more appropriate for the for the pink panther than Sherlock, but I am sure that is the point.

I know Christoph Waltz probably seems like a really obvious choice but I'd love to see him as Moriarty, and I'd especially love to see him and Farrell/Reilly square off against each other.

Hopefully the humor is more in line with Step Brothers than Talladega Nights.

Well, it's not written or directed by the same people who made Talladega Nights and Step Brothers (Will Ferrell and Adam McKay). It's from the man who brought us Get Hard, so I'm guessing the humor will be more along those lines.
