‘Elementary, My Dear Watson’: Hollywood Tackles Super-Sleuth, Sherlock Holmes (Twice)

2 07 2008

A few weeks ago, it was announced that Guy Ritchie (dir. Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels; Snatch) would be directing a film about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective, Sherlock Holmes. Think about that. Let it digest a little bit. Guy Ritchie. Sherlock Holmes. God knows what the hell is going to come of that. One can only imagine. I don’t know if I’m prepared to make a decision about that yet.

However, I imagine it being exponentially better than what Columbia Pictures and Judd Apatow have in mind. Apparently, Columbia plans to release a comedy about Detective Holmes and his trusty side-kick, Watson starring Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Sweeney Todd) and Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Talladega Nights) respectively. Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) is currently penning the script.

Who knows when this monstrosity will be released. All I know is Will Ferrell is spreading through Hollywood like cancer and must be stopped at any cost.
