News on Guy Ritchie’s sequel SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS has been so sparse lately that I almost forgot that it was going on. Lucky for all of us it is still in production and is still set to hit theaters on December 16, 2011. You can check out the photos below that show what looks like a shot from the film as well as some behind-the-scenes images that include the director. The film stars: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris, Rachel McAdams, Stephen Fry and Kelly Reilly.
Official synopsis: Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a criminal mastermind at large – Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) – and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder – a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty. The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction – all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
