Brad Pitt to Make 'Sherlock Holmes' Sequel a Must-See


Brad Pitt


Helmer Guy Ritchie is said wanting to turn 'pretty boy' Brad Pitt into 'the world's greatest supervillain' in the follow-up to his adventure drama film.

Brad Pitt is allegedly set to join Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in the follow-up to "Sherlock Holmes". Following speculation that the "Inglourious Basterds" star will play the villain in the second film, PopEater has just reported that he has been added to the cast for the upcoming movie to play Professor Moriarty.

"The director, Guy Ritchie, loves Brad," an industry source tells Rob Shuter of PopEater. "He has worked with him before and thinks he is one of the most underrated actors working today. Guy knows that everyone thinks of as a Pitt as a pretty boy and can't wait to turn him into the world's greatest supervillain. It will definitely make the sequel a must-see."

Additionally, the site claims an insider has revealed that Pitt is "very interested in taking on the role." He is reportedly also glad that his real living partner and his co-star in "Mr and Mrs Smith", Angelina Jolie, is not considered for the part.

As for Ritchie, he remained mum on Pitt's possible involvement in the "Sherlock Holmes" sequel. When asked by Matt Patches from UGO about whether or not the actor is going to star as Moriarty, the helmer simply said, "Can't say."

"Sherlock Holmes" has been released in theaters across the U.S. on December 25. It follows Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law's Dr. Watson on their latest challenge. Having lethal fighting skills in addition to his legendary intellect, Holmes attempts to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country.
