Warner Bros has announced another Sherlock Holmes sequel. That’s Sherlock Holmes, not Sherlock. The film series, not the series of film-length TV episodes. Like, the one that started in 2009, not the one that started in 2010.

It’s confusing, isn’t it? Both franchises started around the same time, feature massive stars and reinventing the classic stories.

But what’s actually happening here, though, is that a third installment in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes series, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, has been announced for 2020. So that’s this one:

Sherlock Holmes

Not this one: 

Sherlock

They don’t make it easy, do they? They’re pretty much dressed the same and all. So many shades of brown... 

The director hasn’t been announced yet but it’ll probably be Guy Ritchie again. This follows 2009’s Sherlock Holmes and 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Book Of Shadows. The script is being written by NarcosChris Brancato, and the film will open on Christmas Day.

Also opening that day is Avatar 2, which is fun, as the first Avatar opened the same day as the first Sherlock Holmes
