The first on set photos from the Warner Bros sequel, Sherlock Holmes 2 have surfaced online. They feature the main characters Sherlock and Watson as played by Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. As usual, neither of them look like they’re enjoying each other’s company and they might attack at any moment. We’re not sure what this scene is about but feel free to speculate…

There hasn’t been a lot of info revealed regarding the plot of Sherlock 2, but it looks like they’re somewhere on the countryside. The first movie relied heavily on the backdrop of London and here it’s all open fields and hills. What we do know is that the plot will pick up with the revelation that Professor Moriarty has been behind all of Holmes’ troubles.

Jared Harris (“Mad Men“) has been named as the actor stepping into the shoes of the villain, while Stephen Fry will play Holmes’ older brother, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo alum Noomi Rapace will star as the female lead. The film will once again be directed by Guy Ritchie and is scheduled to hit theaters on December 16, 2011.
