Robert Downey Jr. Halts 'Sherlock Holmes 2' Filming


Robert Downey Jr.


The leading man is caught in a bit of flu and calls for a sick leave during a filming in London this week.

Filming on the "Sherlock Holmes" sequel was halted earlier this week after Robert Downey Jr. fell ill, according to a new report. The actor is currently filming the follow-up to Guy Ritchie's 2009 film in London, but he pulled out of the shoot on Tuesday, October 5 after complaining he felt unwell, reports Britain's The Sun.

A source tells the newspaper, "Everyone was fired up and ready to go. Word filtered around that Robert had a bit of a sniffle and wouldn't be coming in. It was a bit of a shock."

"Sherlock Holmes 2" is due to be released in theaters on December 16 next year. Noomi Rapace, Stephen Fry and Jared Harris have joined Downey Jr. and Jude Law as the new cast.
