'Sherlock Holmes 3' Confirmed By Robert Downey Jr., In Demand Actor To Revive Movie Franchise

By Jane Reed

It was in 2011 when Robert Downey Jr. played the role of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective. Now, the actor will reprise his role again in the 3rd installment of the Sherlock Holmes franchise.

Downey was busy playing superhero since he wore the Iron Man suit. Afterwards, he took on the Avengers series as well as playing beside Captain America in "Civil War." Now, he's back wearing his detective hat in an era where aliens have never been thought of yet. According to Blastr, the Tony Stark lead is in demand once again for the third Sherlock Holmes.

It was said that the third film should have been done after 2011 but he and his director, Guy Ritchie, had a busy calendar that they couldn't make time for it. Downey's schedule was jam-packed with Iron Man but it was Downey himself that officially made the announcement.

Entrepreneur once wrote that if Downey was a company, he'd be leading the Dow Jones Index because he revived his career and soared higher.

While making the press rounds for Captain America's third movie, ShortList was able to get the scoop that Downey and Ritchie were working hard on "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur." He revealed that Charlie Hunnam will play the title role and that they're going to start filming before 2016 ends.

"We're talking about it right now. We can do some preliminary stuff. If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week. When we're making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. [So] we'll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I'm tired all the time, but I'm so excited about it."

Downey has always been on the go and even though he's never had a break in between, clearly he's passionate about his job. Drew Pearce is busy writing the screenplay that will unite Downey with Jude Law once again. And would Rachel McAdams be returning? Who knows!

If you're looking to follow his footsteps in acting, according to Entrepreneur, you need to concentrate on getting ahead one step at a time; believe that your talent will enable people to overlook your past mistakes; ask for help when needed; don't be too proud; develop self-discipline; and don't be afraid to play in an ensemble.
