Sherlock Holmes 2 nabs a silly title

Well here’s another piece of studio insanity…the sequel to Guy Ritchie’s 2009 imaginative re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes has gotten a new title…and it’s going to be called Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows…seriously!

Sherlock Holmes 2 (cause I’m not sure I can use that full title without wanting to throw something) reunites Robert Downey Jr’s Holmes with Jude Law as faithful companion Dr. Watson, and adds new cast members in the guise of Jared Harris’ Professor Moriarty, Noomi Rapace’s Sim, and Stephen Fry’s Mycroft.

Ritchie is back in the directors chair for the film which is scheduled for released on December 16th. More details as they appear.
