Warner Bros Hires Writer Drew Pearce For ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’

SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS hasn’t even released anywhere yet and the studio is already prepping for a 3rd installment into the franchise. Warner Bros have tapped the shoulder of Drew Pearce, currently writing IRON MAN 3 and also co-writer on Guillermo Del Toro’s next alien invasion movie PACIFIC RIM, to get to work on SHERLOCK 3.

That’s a good indication of the strength of SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS, if the studio has already commissioned a 3rd before it’s opened they must have something a bit special.

SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS opens on DECEMBER 16, 2011 in the United States and January 12, 2012 in Australia.
