A quickie little item emerged over at TotalFilm today concerning the almost-certainly-inevitable Sherlock Holmes sequel. Well, that is, inevitable as long as any sequel(s) is “Homes & Watson” and not “Holmes <3 Watson.” Andrea Plunket, who apparently is the copyright holder of the American adaptations to the Holmes legacy, didn’t take some rainbow musing from star Robert Downey, Jr., on a recent appearance on Letterman.
Downey wondered if they might take the character all the way to The Blue Oyster with Watson in any sequel. Plunket doesn’t see it that way, however: “I hope this is just an example of Mr. Downey’s black sense of
humour,” she says. “It would be drastic, but I would withdraw
permission for more films to be made if they feel that is a theme they
wish to bring out in the future. I am not hostile to homosexuals, but I am to anyone who is not true to the spirit of the books.”
Sure, literary accuracy is what I immediately go to after scoping that statement. Anyway, check out Devin’s review of said flick here.
Thanks to Jamie at Think McFly Think for the tip.
