Jude Law talks Sherlock Holmes 2

Shooting to start in October

 Jude Law this week revealed that production on Sherlock Holmes 2 could start earlier than expected.

Speaking at the 45th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, where he accepted the Festival President's Award, he revealed: "It looks likely that we're going to shoot the second Sherlock Holmes in October."

This advances production quite a bit from the previously stated December start, but Law was still vague on possible plot developments: 

"I don't know yet where the story will go, but there are a lot of Sherlock Holmes novels to choose from."

With Scorcese's Hugo Cabret and Steven Soderbergh's Contagion also on his horizon, the second half of 2010 promises to be a busy period for Law.

But he seems to be looking forward to rejoining the Sherlock Holmes team most of all: "I had so much fun making Sherlock Holmes that the question of how much money it would make just wasn't one of my priorities."

"I was really pleased it was such a success but mostly because that will give me the opportunity to work with Robert and Guy again."

Are you as excited as Jude?

      I don't know how much this can be classed as a rumour but IMDB has Daniel Day Lewis down as Professor Moriarty. I think that could be about as perfect as casting gets!

      I have it from a good source that Ritchie wanted SH2 based in a snow location, but didn't want to use false snow. That would explain the winter start date and as a lot of the filming for this type of film is in Prague it will be snow by then. Also DDL as Moriarty is a strong possibility as the same source said to me that a Mr Pitt wanted about 6 million JUST to do the Moriarty scenes in SH1-which of course they said no to. Which is why those scenes where shot they way they were, ie dark, you can't see the actor.

      How "Guy" is working in movies is a constant surprise. The middle/upper class twit has nothing fresh or relevant to add.
