Is it just me or does there seem to be an uptick in the number of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/re-imaginings of late? Movies, television, comics, you name it. Luckily, quite a few of them have been entertaining and, in some cases, astounding. It seems only fair then that we have a version for all ages, one that the kiddos will enjoy and with which they might identify. Kid Sherlock #1 fits the bill with plenty to offer all readers.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly To Re-Unite For Sherlock Holmes Movie

Remember way back in 2008, right around the time that the first of Guy Ritchie’s action movie takes on Arthur Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes character was on the way starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, when there was a second more comedic Sherlock project in the works starring Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby co-stars Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell as Holmes and Watson?

The screenplay for the movie was written by Etan Cohen, but the movie didn’t materialize at the time. Now comes word that the project, titled Holmes & Watson, is up and moving again. This time around Ferrell is set to play Holmes instead of Watson and another one of his Talladega Nights co-stars, John C. Reilly, who also starred with Ferrell in Step Brothers, is taking on the role of Watson.

Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new featurette for their upcoming holiday release Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and you can watch it here below.

Robert Downey Jr. once again assumes the title role of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous literary sleuth in this sequel to 2009’s Guy Ritchie-directed smash hit mystery-adventure, with Jude Law reprising his role of Holmes’ faithful but constantly put-upon compatriot Dr. John Watson.

DVD Review: Sherlock: Season One

Sherlock Season 1Sherlock: Season One
DVD | Blu-ray
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Rupert Graves
BBC Warner
Release Date: November 9, 2010

With the large and pricey marketing campaign that accompanied the re-imagined Sherlock Holmes film from director Guy Richie, it’s entirely reasonable that the latest iteration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work went unnoticed — especially for anyone living in the U.S. I’m of course talking about the BBC television series Sherlock conceived by writer/producer Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss.

Unlike previous adaptations to the screen, this Sherlock is set in the modern day, which both Gatiss and Moffat explain was fairly easy to do and added a lot back to the basic premise of why the classic stories were so great to begin with. Therefore John Watson writes a blog instead of keeping a diary (though, he was still wounded while serving as a medical doctor in Afghanistan, only in the most recent war); Sherlock writes texts messages instead of letters, and street informants aren’t orphan children but members of the homeless population in London. Sherlock uses a small magnifying glass that is encased in leather and fits in his pocket rather than the large lens that’s become iconic with all sleuthing fiction.

Since before Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes even came out, rumors about who might play the longtime arch nemesis to Holmes, Moriarty, in Sherlock Holmes 2 have been swirling.

The most popular name associated with the role was that of Brad Pitt, who was at one time reported to have joined the film, though the validity of these reports were disputed and denied on numerous occasions. Now comes confirmation that Pitt will not be playing Moriarty, and that Ritchie has found the actor he does want for the role. Mad Men star and son of the legendary Richard Harris, Jared Harris, has been chosen to become the villain and constant opposition of the famed detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.).

Actor Stephen Fry has joined the cast of Sherlock Holmes 2, the upcoming sequel to the 2009 hit directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams.

Fry is set to play Mycroft Holmes, the older brother of Downey’s Sherlock character. If the character plays out like he did in Arthur Conan Doyle‘s books, Mycroft is more intelligent than Sherlock and works for super secret government agency, but also more lazy than his younger sibling. Sources say the character will be a bit of an oddball and suffer from social anxieties.

Leonard Nimoy as Sherlock HolmesAs I had hoped, my Christmas this year was filled with lots of Star Trek and Sherlock Holmes. Along with a viewing this weekend of the new Sherlock Holmes film, which opened Christmas Day, there was also a massive family gathering on Christmas night to watch the new Star Trek movie on Blu-ray.

And Santa brought me a bunch of Star Trek audiobooks, Blu-rays, and games (you can see a picture of my Trek haul over in TrekMovie‘s reader gift roundup post), as well as The Complete 2-Volume Annotated Sherlock Holmes, which I have had my eye on for the last five years and spent Christmas Eve night drooling over. Oh, and on Christmas we launched our The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ Contest, where we have three sets of four all-new Sherlock Holmes novels to give away to our readers!

And what’s better than Star Trek and Sherlock Holmes? A combination of the two, that’s what! Hero Complex found a photo of Leonard Nimoy — everyone’s favorite Vulcan — portraying Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous literary detective during a national stage tour in the 1970s. (That’s the photo here at right; click for larger full view.)

Sherlock HolmesWe’ve read and seen many things for Guy Ritchie‘s upcoming new vision of Sherlock Holmes, which is finally preparing to be released tomorrow on Christmas Day. To celebrate the release of this new movie as well as the history of the cherished Arthur Conan Doyle character itself, Londonist went above and beyond the above and beyond to bring us a very cool new look at the actual locations within the world surrounding Holmes: London. The beloved England city is as much a character of the Sherlock Holmes mythology as Watson is, and now you can visit the places and general locations that the crime solving duo visit with this detailed mapping. Head on over to the website to check out their handy work!

The impressive thing about this interactive map is that they didn’t half-ass it at all; the website went ahead and re-read all of the old Sherlock Holmes stories and put together all of the locations to map out. It comes handy with a key that specifies precise locations, general locations, actual Holmes-related locations, and paths that were traveled. No word yet on how many of these locations will be featured in this latest Sherlock Holmes adventure.
