Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law in a new photo from Sherlock Holmes 2

Possibly one of the most anticipated films in 2011 is the sequel to SHERLOCK HOLMES, which came out in 2009 and starred the debonair Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams. Although not one of my favorite films, it was highly entertaining and made me love RDJ even more (even I didn’t know that was possible). The sequel has been in the works for awhile and we know that RDJ and Jude Law are coming back and that we’ll be getting a few new additions. The first being Noomi Rapace (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) who will play a gypsy named Sim and Stephen Fry who will be playing Mycroft Holmes, aka Sherlock’s brother, who is being described as “stranger and perhaps even more brilliant” than Sherlock himself. We have also found out that unlike the first film, the second installment in the SHERLOCK HOLMES franchise will not be as heavily involved in the cult like the first as well as the fact that our smart duo will be traveling around Europe in search of Moriarty who will be played by Jared Harris.
The currently untitled sequel is set to hit theaters December 16th, 2011.
