  • Warner Bros. Dates 'Sherlock Holmes 3' For Christmas 2020

It's been seven years since the last "Sherlock Holmes" movie, but the franchise will be retuning with yet another instalment in two years.

If the proposed schedule suffers no more unprecedented delays, Sherlock Holmes 3 will release in theaters worldwide on December 25, 2020. It's something which Warner Bros has been wanting to change for a while though, and they will finally close it out with a third film in 2020.


Downey stars as the iconic British detective in the film franchise, while Law plays his famous sidekick, Dr. Watson.

Robert has been keen, despite his commitment to playing Iron Man in multiple Marvel movies, and Jude too, while director Guy Ritchie has reportedly been signed on to direct since 2012. Guy Ritchie directed the first two films - Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. You would nearly say that a third film should not be warranted if Ritchie is not to helm it. 2009's Sherlock Holmes was followed by 2011's A Game of Shadows, which brought Stephen Fry into the fold as Sherlock's brother Mycroft. Hopefully, we will hear some positive news on this soon. The other film, which is now filming, is "The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle", in which Downey Jr. will be seen playing a character who can speak to animals. Although the first film, Sherlock Holmes, received a slightly better critical response than it's sequel, it did not gross as much as it's sequel, earning a total of $524 million worldwide.
