By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Sherlock Holmes” sequel just received a little jolt of international flair.
Gallic actor Gilles Lellouche, who savvy filmgoers will recognize from his work in Guillaume Canet’s “Little White Lies,” confirmed this morning from Paris that he will join Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” starlet Noomi Rapace in the movie, which is filming right now.
“I’m thrilled, and I’ll play a nice bad guy,” Lellouche said.
The same report also mentions that original “Holmes” love interest Rachel McAdams will return, though that’s only rumored right now. What has been confirmed, however, is that Jared Harris has nabbed the coveted, villainous role of Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis, Professor Moriarty.
Ritchie’s untitled “Sherlock Holmes” sequel will be in theaters in 2011.
