‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ to start filming earlier than December
HollywoodNews.com: “Sherlock Holmes” has pulled in a domestic total gross of $209,028,679 and so it was only a matter of time before they started shooting “Sherlock Holmes 2.” Originally the film was slated to start filming in December, but the production has now been pushed up.
Jude Law said, “It looks likely that we’re going to shoot the second Sherlock Holmes in October,” reports Empire Online. He added, “I don’t know yet where the story will go, but there are a lot of Sherlock Holmes novels to choose from.”
In addition, Law has multiple projects lined up for himself. He says, “I’ve had a long period of doing nothing, which has been self-imposed and wonderfully rewarding, I have to say, but mostly so because I’ve got a very busy second half of the year coming up. I’m working with [Martin] Scorsese on his new film Hugo Cabret, which I believe is his first film for children. I don’t want to give too much away, but I play Hugo Cabret’s father.” He will then shoot “Sherlock Holmes 2” and then “Contagion,” which he says is “an ensemble piece about the spread of a H1N1-type disease on an international scale. So it’s going to be a very busy second half of the year; very lazy first half of the year.”
