Drew Pearce to Write SHERLOCK HOLMES 3

It’s not much of a surprise that regardless of the success of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Warner Bros. is ordering a script for Sherlock Holmes 3.  Getting a sequel script into development has become standard practice for major franchises so if the upcoming film is a success, the studio can hit the ground running with the next one.  According to Deadline, Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce will handle the screenplay for the next adventure of Sherlock Holmes and his boy Watson.  Unsurprisingly, there are no details about Sherlock Holmes 3.  I assume it will involve a mystery, crazy deductive-reasoning skills, and lots of speed-ramping.

Pearce has been on a hot streak lately.  He was the co-writer of British superhero comedy series No Heroics and then was hired as a go-to guy for superhero movies including Iron Man 3, Runaways, and The Mighty plus he also did some work for the script for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming monster movie, Pacific Rim.  This latest gig serves as a reminder that I really need to get around to seeing No Heroics.
