As "Sherlock Holmes" is undergoing its principal photography in London, possible story details of the Guy Ritchie-directed drama thriller have been leaked out. Getting the story from one of its readers named "Jack the Ripper", IESB teased parts of the details, noting that the movie will be set in 1891 London and opened with a narration by Dr. John Watson.
More on the story, it is revealed that there will be a foot chase into an underground sewer and a fist fight with a group of bowler-hat-wearing baddies as well as a seven-foot giant. Through the plot details, it is also uncovered that villainous Lord Blackwood is actually behind the death of five butchered women and Sherlock Holmes manages to get a hold of him for justice. The complete story can be read via IESB.
Aimed for a November 20, 2009 U.S. release, "Holmes" reportedly is based on Lionel Wigram's upcoming comic book and centers on the adventures of the famed 19th Century detective. In the film, the popular deerstalker-capped detective to be played by Robert Downey Jr. will be portrayed more as an action hero. Jude Law will be seen as Watson, while Rachel McAdams is playing Holmes' love interest Irene Adler.
