Sherlock Holmes 3 Might Be Moving Forward With A Surprising New Director

Dexter Fletcher In Talks To Direct ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ For Warner Bros.

Dexter Fletcher is now in talks to direct the upcoming film "Sherlock Holmes 3". The Rocketman director is certainly an unexpected choice; the Sherlock films are a distinctly Guy Ritchie product, and it's hard to imagine another filmmaker successfully replicating that style. Along with the first two Sherlock Holmes movies in this series earning a decent amount of positive reviews, they've also performed solidly on the commercial scale, taking in $524 million and $545.4 million worldwide, respectively. Rocketman is one of my favorite movies of the year so far, and it shows that Fletcher has a real knack for when to go big and when to hold back and focus more on character.

Downey Jr. will reprise the role of Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law will reportedly return to play Holmes' partner Dr. John Watson. It's a good thing that Sherlock Holmes is timeless.

Facebook may be looking for major VR exclusives
Ubisoft isn't the only big-name publisher that's making new partnerships with Oculus and Facebook either. There hasn't been a mainline Splinter Cell game since 2013's Splinter Cell: Blacklist .

According to Deadline, the two previous Sherlock Holmes movies, released in 2009 and 2011, have made over $1 billion at the global box office.

Fletcher famously took over directing "Bohemian Rhapsody" after Bryan Singer left the project mid-production (though he did not receive credit as a director due to DGA rules).
