Yesterday evening a Hollywood Reporter story, written by Stuart Kemp and sourcing Warner Bros. execs, refuted a report in London’s Sun that the studio had asked director Guy Ritchie to reshoot parts of Sherlock Holmes.
Damn straight. If I was running Warner Bros. production I wouldn’t dream of telling Ritchie to re-shoot Sherlock Homie — it’s perfect as is! A kickboxing James Bondian Holmes with a totally buff bod. Maybe he’ll have the ability to fly or at least leap like a tiger and run up walls like the martial-arts guys do. Maybe he’ll be able to deliver a blow so powerful he can send villains crashing through brick walls. None of that tweedy-ass Basil Rathbone stuff, no deerstalker hat or Inverness overcoat….balls to the wall!
