With Sherlock Holmes in full swing everyone’s been hoping for a few looks of the Guy Ritchie’s version of the film. Just released on JustJared are a few sneak peek photos of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in full Holmes get up. It appears that Guy Richie has decided to diverge from the original description given to Sherlock by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s illustrator, Sidney Paget and go for a more hip, bohemian look?
The original description was as follows:
“His very person and appearance were such as to strike the most casual observer. In height he was rather over six feet,and so excessively lean that he seemed to be considerably taller. His eyes were sharp and piercing, save during those intervals of torpor to which I have alluded; and his thin, hawk-like nose gave his whole expression an air of alertness and decision… His hands were invariable blotted with ink and stained with chemicals.”
Well, who said following the rules gets you anywhere?
