Downey Confirms “Gravity”, Talks “Holmes 2”

Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed that Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D sci-fi-thriller “Gravity” is his next immediate project followed by Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” sequel reports fMTV News.

Downey will shoot “Gravity” in London this Summer. The ‘Holmes’ sequel kicks off this Fall and while it will mostly shoot in London, Downey expects to “be abroad” saying “A bit of Paris, a bit of Switzerland by the end, if I’m not mistaken”.

That last bit could allude to the filmmakers using the famous ending of “The Final Problem” in which both Holmes and Moriarty seemingly fall to their death at Reichenbach Falls (Holmes ultimately survives). As its already been stated that Moriarty will serve as the film’s villain, it would come as no surprise if the events in ‘Problem’ are incorporated into the script.

Downey’s not sure if Rachel McAdams’ Irene Adler character will also return – “It’s hard to say. Because Irene Adler only appeared in one of the stories of Doyle’s reservoir of activities. But we’ll find out quickly.” He’s also not sure if they’ll do it 3D but says “you’re leaving a bunch of dough on the table if you don’t shoot something in 3-D.”
