Robert Downey Jr. Still Wants to Do Sherlock Holmes 3

Robert Downey Jr. looking to make Sherlock Holmes 3

Ritchie's decidedly British aesthetic married with Downey Jr.'s charismatic turn as the world-famous sleuth was a hit with moviegoers and now, fans are crying out for more.

While Robert Downey Jr. isn't expressly telling EW Sherlock Holmes 3 is next on his bucket list, it's still encouraging that the actor is still thinking about doing another film in the franchise.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, Sherlock Holmes grossed £379 million worldwide, with its 2011 sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was also a box office success, and Robert has now divulged that a third instalment is on the cards. The last time we got some update about the film was in October 2016 when Warner Bros. assembled a writers room for Sherlock Holmes 3, tapping Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Justin Malen (Baywatch), Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Kieran Fitzgerald (Snowden), and Geneva Dworet-Robertson (Tomb Raider).

He continued: "Then there's all this stuff down the pike".

The 52-year-old is gearing up to start promoting Avengers: Infinity War, in which he reprises his role as Tony Stark/ Iron Man and will also appear in an untitled Avengers film due out in 2019.

Notably, Warner Bros.' Sherlock Holmes franchise is based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective mysteries. Following that he hopped directly into The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, with Downey Jr. playing the famous Doctor Dolittle.

"We're looking at another Sherlock Holmes, we're developing Perry Mason for HBO. I still want to do Pinocchio".

In the meantime, they can catch Downey as Iron Man once more in "Avengers: Infinity War". Which means he could open up his schedule to a lot of other projects, like Sherlock Holmes 3. Therefore talking about taking a break, he said, "When I'm done with this, if you hear I'm not taking a break, call me and tell me I'm insane".

Fun fact: Both modern Sherlocks - RDJ and Benedict Cumberbatch - will costar in "Avengers: Infinity War". To find out what we know about Avengers: Infinity War, take a look at our full guide.
