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.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He’s one of the greatest basketball players the NBA has ever seen. He’s a 19-time NBA All-Star. He’s a six-time NBA MVP. He is, as they say, a living legend. His influence, undoubtedly, spreads far and wide. He used that influence to make an impassioned speech for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philly last week. But only one week prior, he graced the stage at another convention — San Diego Comic-Con, where he was promoting Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook, his new comic book miniseries from Titan Comics set in the universe of his 2015 novel Mycroft Holmes.

That’s right. Novel. Comic book. Mycroft Holmes, as in the older brother to the world’s greatest fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is on it.

Robert Downey Jr. Says ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ Is Still In The Pipeline

Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr.

The game is afoot for the Sherlock Holmes film franchise. Shortly after Robert Downey Jr. starred as Iron Man in the titular film, the actor moved onto yet another title role in 2009 in Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes, and then reprised the role once more in the 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Though the sequel wasn’t as much of a hit as its predecessor, both films were enough of a commercial success that Warner Bros wanted more. News regarding Sherlock Holmes 3 has been slow going, but with Downey Jr. currently on the press tour for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, journalists will undoubtedly be asking the actor not only about the film he stars in, but others as well.

Find out what Downey Jr. had to saw about the untitled Sherlock Holmes 3 film here below.
