Brad Pitt to Star in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes

Monday, August 17, 2009

Brad PittGuy Ritchie is one lucky fella — Brad Pitt has agreed to star in his upcoming Sherlock Holmes flick.

Pitt stepped in to save the day after studio bosses demanded that the movie focuses more on Holmes’ nemesis Moriarty.

“It’s a huge coup to have Brad joining the cast,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “He has worked for Guy before and said if he could, he would do anything to help out.

“It was an oversight in the film not to make a bigger deal about Moriarty. He is mentioned as Holmes’ arch enemy, but the bosses wanted Guy to make more of him. Jude Law (who plays Dr Watson) and Robert Downey Jr (Holmes) have already shot their scenes.

“But now that 10 extra days have been added to shoot the new ones, they may be called back for a day or two.

“Brad is expected to be filming all over London. Cliveden House has been earmarked as a location for Moriarty’s home.

“There will be scenes shot at Royal Victoria Dock, Pontoon Docks, Pinewood and Chatham Docks in Kent. And they will be using clips around City of London to set the scene.

“It’s going to be a full-on couple of days, but now the release date has been pushed back they might just do it in time.”
