Robert Downey Jr. is a busy man. He already has his hands full with “Avengers 3,” other Marvel movies and “Iron Man.” “Sherlock Holmes 3” too is set to start filming. Will he shoot back-to-back for all these projects?
“Sherlock Holmes 3” has received the green light from Robert Downey Jr. and the film is supposed to start filming later in the year. However, the actor is already busy with “Avengers 3” and other Marvel movies. Given his determination, it seems that the “Iron Man” actor has no option but to shoot back-to-back.
According to Collider, Downey Jr. had hinted on the start of the “Sherlock Holmes 3” filming during the press tour for “Captain America: Civil War.” Producer Joel Silver spoke to the publication during the press day of “The Nice Guys” about scheduling the production for the end of this year.
“It looks like it could happen this fall. Downey said he wants to do it. He’s gotta launch into another ‘Avengers’ movie right after the New Year, so we’re trying to get it done,” said Silver. “We have a script that we like. Jude [Law] is available and Downey is available, and we’re hoping we can get it done. If it works, great. If not, we’ll do it another time. But, it looks like it could happen now,” he added.
We Got This Covered elaborates that Silver even spilled the beans on other “Sherlock” sequels. He hoped that this is not the end of it and hoped that the “Iron Man” star wouldn’t say no to others. “I hope [it’s not the last one]. I don’t think so. How many Bond films have they made? As long as there’s a character, we can work with it. It’s not an end story,” revealed Silver.
“We can keep going, as long as people want to do it. It’s [the actor’s] call. They have to say, ‘Okay, I’m ready to go.’ I read about them making another Bad Boys. If they want to do it, then you try to get it done,” he added.
