Dishing on the possible details of 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel is lead actor Robert Downey Jr. who says that the upcoming film will improve on the original's formula.
Following the success of "Sherlock Holmes", there has been no doubt that there will be follow up to the 2009 film. Now Robert Downey Jr. has been willing to share some details on "Sherlock Holmes 2", saying that it could be set in some countries outside England.
"Yes, I think we'll be abroad," he told MTV Movie News when asked whether there are plans to take Holmes' show on the road. Downey Jr. then added, "A bit of Paris, a bit of Switzerland by the end, if I'm not mistaken."
The depicter of the British detective also affirmed that he will reprise his role in the sequel, saying "I'm going to do 'Sherlock 2'; it was one of my favorite experiences to date." However, he is not sure if Rachel McAdams' Irene Adler will also return to the second installment. "It's hard to say. Because Irene Adler only appeared in one of the stories of Doyle's reservoir of activities. But we'll find out quickly," he explained.
About the possibility of making it into 3-D movie, Downey Jr. stated, "It's hard to say." He further elaborated, "Certainly, if you don't do it as an option, then you don't have that option. If the last six months have shown anything, it's that audiences like options, and they will take advantage of them. And you're leaving a bunch of dough on the table if you don't shoot something in 3-D."
But the 45-year-old actor promised "Sherlock Holmes 2" will improve on the original's formula. "There's always [room for improvement]; as a matter of fact, that's the great thing about seeing a film in success," he claimed. "With 'Sherlock,' we both had success and the audience responded to it, and we saw room for improvement."
"Sherlock Holmes" follows the adventure of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous character and his partner Dr. John Watson in their adventure to bring down a new nemesis. The film opened with $62 million at North American Box Office and earned more than $200 million in total.
