According THR, the Sweden, Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) will be playing her first English language role as the female lead in the sequel to Sherlock Holmes.
Warner Bros will be reuniting some of the cast from the first movie, Robert Downey Jr (Holmes) and Jude Law (Dr. Watson). Behind the scenes, director, Guy Ritchie, is coming back for the second installment as the producers Susan Downey, Lionel Wigram, Joel Silver and Dan Lin will stand firm alongside Ritchie.
No details are being revealed about the plot as it is tightly wrapped up. All that has been disclosed is Holmes will be facing Moriarty. Also coming along is Holmes’ brother Mycroft. Details on Rapace’s character are slightly sketchy but guesses are leaning towards a French Gypsy. Clarity on whether she is will be a love interest has yet to be announced.
I remember seeing Sherlock Holmes in theater and was highly disappointed. I love the actors in the film, but to this day I can’t pinpoint what it lacked. I have been intrigued by the stories of Sherlock Holmes, so maybe I expected more out of it than it deserved. Now for the second film, I might just remain at home and wait until it hits Netflix.
Filming for this movie is targeted for later in the year.
