Downey Jr’s SHERLOCK HOLMES 3 Adds Five Writers(!?!)

Sometimes you need one writer, and sometimes you need…five, apparently.

Even though the “Writer’s Room” concept that certain film studios have borrowed from the TV industry tends to be used for large scale franchises (Universal has set one up for its slate of Classic Monster movies), it looks like Warner Bros and Robert Downey Jr. want to use that concept for Sherlock Holmes 3. This move, which is typically used in order to make sure that there’s a common thread and tone throughout a series of films, means that the threequel now has five writers helping to shape the script.

Variety is reporting that Nicole Perlman (Guardians of The Galaxy), Gary Whitta (Rogue One), Justin Malen (Baywatch),Kieren Fitzgerald (Snowden), and Geneva Dworet-Robertson (Tomb Raider) have all been hired to write Sherlock Holmes 3.

The third film in the rebooted series has been a priority for Warner Bros for quite some time, yet it’s been hard to get the film off of the ground because of Downey Jr.’s hectic schedule these last few years. Even now, he’s helping put Sherlock Holmes 3 together while preparing for Avengers: Infinity War, which starts in February.

It’s expected that his co-star Jude Law will be back as Watson, and that Guy Ritchie will be in the director’s chair for this third go-around.

I always find it a bit odd when movies have this many writers working on it. Perhaps I’m a bit naive, but I just think that’s way too many cooks in the kitchen. But hey, what do I know?
