Dexter Fletcher to direct Sherlock Holmes 3
Dexter Fletcher will direct the third instalment of Sherlock Holmes.
Fletcher, who has been in cinemas with Elton John biopic Rocketman, takes over from Guy Ritchie.
In the movie series, Robert Downey Jr starred as Sherlock Holmes with Jude Law as Doctor Watson, first in 2009 and then again in 2011 for sequel A Game Of Shadows. Both men will reprise their roles for the new movie.
Ritchie directed both movies, but has now stepped away, leaving Fletcher to take over. No reason has been given for the change.
Chris Brancato, co-creator of Narcos, has provided the screenplay for this new movie.
The movie had been scheduled for December 2020, but has now been moved back to December 22nd in 2021.
