Film: Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr…..


Project Gutenberg works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle here

Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law


Rachel McAdams has just wrapped shooting Sherlock Holmes for Guy Ritchie, with Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson. She plays Irene Adler, a character from the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story “A Scandal in Bohemia.”

What can you tell us about Sherlock Holmes?

McAdams: It’s pretty big. I didn’t realize how big it was until I stepped on the sets, and they were just massive. It’s in true Guy Ritchie fashion, too. It’s lots of fighting and explosions, but, I think, from what I’ve seen, obviously Robert Downey Jr. is an amazing actor, and so is Jude Law. They make a wonderful duo. I think some people are probably skeptical. Everybody has their preconceived notions about Watson in particular. Everyone’s like, “Watson’s supposed to be like this.” Anyway, I just think Jude is a perfect Watson, oddly enough, and they’re really perfect together. That’s kind of the love story, actually. I play supposedly Sherlock’s love interest, but it’s really Watson.

You were surprised—did you expect a costume parlor drama?

McAdams: Well, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know, and I didn’t know if it would be kind of a satire of Sherlock Holmes in some ways, or they’d really want to boost up the comedy. It’s a really nice balance of the two. It’s quite serious and quite heart-pumping, and, at the same time, there’s humor in these light moments, too. I’ve seen just a little sizzle reel of it, and it looks beautiful….

RDJ is fabulous, I am going to see this the way I always do, with no expectations and as open a mind and tabula rasa as I can manage, lol. I am a big mystery fan so we have read all the ACD here at MiM, I am thrilled this kind of film is being produced :0)

Here is the Holmes/Adler many of us remember fondly
