Daniel Day-Lewis NOT Yet Cast in 'Sherlock Holmes' Sequel


Daniel Day-Lewis


Despite report that he has been chosen to play the movie's villain Moriarty, the actor's manager says it's 'not true.'

Guy Ritchie apparently has not made his decision on who will play a villain in "Sherlock Holmes 2". The Sun recently reported that Daniel Day-Lewis has been locked to play Professor Moriarty but the rumor is soon debunked by the actor's manager who simply tells Gossip Cop that the story is "not true."

Day-Lewis was previously said as Ritchie's favorite contender to play the bad guy in "Sherlock Holmes" sequel. Other stars who were thrown as the possible depicter of Sherlock Holmes' nemesis included Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Gary Oldman.

While it is still unknown who will play Moriarty, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have been tapped to reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in "Sherlock Holmes 2". Filming is expected to start in October as stated by Law and the movie is set for December 16, 2011 U.S. release.
