Rumors regarding the sequel to Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes being shot in 3D are heating up as the screenplay for the film comes close to being finished. It seems that Warner Bros has been in talks with Kieran and Michele Mulroney, the writers/producers of the Holmes‘ sequel about making the next Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law collaboration in 3-D.
It is obvious that this wasn’t the producer’s vision in the beginning but the negotiations are getting serious. Does this mean every big blockbuster from here-on-out has to be shot or converted into the 3-D format in order for it to be successful? This trend is over-saturating the market and will probably continue until these films start to bomb at the box office.
The first Holmes was pretty entertaining and if the 3-D aspect can bring more excitement to the sequel then we’re all for it. But don’t just throw it in there as a gimmick to make money. There’s been no confirmation regarding whether or not the producers have decided to take Warners’ advice but we do know that Kieran stated, “Sherlock would be great in 3-D.” That’s not a good sign.
