At the world premiere of his new movie 'RocknRolla', director Guy Ritchie chatted up Empire Magazine about rumors swirling his new 'Sherlock Holmes' movie. The film is to be an action-oriented take on the master detective with Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role.
"I don't have a Watson," Ritchie told Empire. "Somebody just told me that I have Russell Crowe lined up but that's news to me. I suspect that hasn't happened and I'm still looking for my Watson."
In the mean time the film is ramping up pre-production.
"We've got what I'd like to think are some of the best locations in London and with this film I get to show a whole new side to London. I've done contemporary and now I won't be doing that, obviously."
