Dexter Fletcher to Direct 'Sherlock Holmes 3' at Warner Bros

Dexter Fletcher to Direct 'Sherlock Holmes 3' at Warner Bros

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law will be reprising their roles as Holmes and Watson respectively.

Given how successful those two aforementioned films were, Fletcher's involvement is certainly a good sign, even if we were hoping for Guy Ritchie to return after directing Sherlock Holmes and its sequel, A Game of Shadows. "However, Downey's busy schedule as Iron Man prevented any new filming for the series", which I don't really buy. Ritchie made the classic detective story a steampunk, action-heavy, quick-witted joy ride, and the films from 2009 and 2011 made well over a $1 billion at the global box office combined.

Fletcher directed "Rocketman", as well as taking the helm for "Bohemian Rhapsody" after Bryan Singer was sacked.

"Sherlock Holmes 3" is slated to hit theaters December 21, 2021.

The film will be written by Narcos co-creator Chris Brancato, with Joel Silver, Susan Downey, Dan Lin, and Lionel Wigram as producers. Rocketman is one of my favorite movies of the year so far, and it shows that Fletcher has a real knack for when to go big and when to hold back and focus more on character. Fletcher is also the director of "Eddie the Eagle" and is a BAFTA nominee for his work on his debut film "Wild Bill".
