Rachel McAdams In Love With Holmes?

Rachel McAdams has been cast as the leading lady in Warner Bros.’ new updated big screen version of “Sherlock Holmes” says AccessHollywood.com.

McAdams plays Holmes’ enigmatic love interest, Irene Adler, a character who appeared in only one story – 1891’s “A Scandal in Bohemia.”

While the character only appeared in that one story, McAdams’ personage would return for any possible sequel.

McAdams would join Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Mark Strong on the Guy Ritchie project which begins filming next month in the UK.
