British tabloid reports that Guy Ritchie’s upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” film was undergoing an extensive five-week series of reshoots have been shot down by the studio.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Pictures has officially refuted reports, saying in a statement that “It is not true that Warner Bros. has asked for any reshoots on ‘Sherlock Holmes'” about The Sun-originated report which claimed Ritchie had to recall cast members for reshoots.
There is some more filming about to take place however – “The inserts and pickup shots being completed next week, which have long been part of the schedule, do not involve any cast, and are a standard part of filmmaking.”
In the project Robert Downey Jr. stars as the British sleuth while Jude Law is his trusted sidekick Dr. Watson. Filming on the project wrapped up recently in the UK.
The statement added that “It is still early in the production process, and the studio has not yet seen the movie. Both Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie are very pleased with the footage they have seen thus far.”
