Though Robert Downey Jr. is currently busy shooting the third installment of his Marvel franchise Iron Man, he has another popular series that’s poised to get the threequel treatment at some point in the near future.  The success of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (it grossed over $540 million worldwide) spurred Warner Bros. to get working on another entry in the action sleuth series, as the studio hired Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce to handle the screenplay last October.

Word on the project since then has been quiet, but Steve recently sat down with Jude Law at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about his upcoming romantic drama Anna Karenina.  Towards the end of the conversation, Law provided a brief update on Sherlock Holmes 3, expressing his excitement at the prospect of reuniting with the Sherlock team for another go-around.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

“No I don’t yet.  I mean there’s certainly talk of it and I know there’s a script being played around with, but Downey’s a busy boy and I’m a busy boy so we’ll see.  But we want to [do another one].  We’re a very happy team and we have a lot of fun and we also think there’s still a lot of legs in the duo.”

It’s a minor update, but Law certainly seems game to return for more Sherlock Holmes adventures.  He and Downey Jr. are likely mulling over a number of projects in the near future, but Law recently committed to starring in Wes Anderson’s upcoming The Grand Budapest Hotel.
