Sherlock Holmes 2 - the sequel to 'Sherlock Holmes' - is currently shooting in London with the original cast of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law back for another adventure, pitted against Holmes nemesis Dr. Moriarty (Brad Pitt reportedly passed on the role).
On a frigid November morning, as steam rises from train engines burning fiery coal in a century-old rail depot, Sherlock Holmes is in trouble. Blood on the side of his face, he’s fleeing the staccato rat-tat-tat of 19th century gunfire. Fortunately, his loyal friend Dr. Watson is at his side, as is a rifle-toting gypsy. Outside the depot, Watson and Holmes fumble with their guns to get a bead on their assailants, but the gypsy woman, Sim, beats them to it. She confidently cocks her rifle. Boom! A man falls dead. On beat, Watson and Holmes look at each other with surprise.
The sequence, unfolding on the grounds of the train museum in Didcot, 40 minutes by rail from London’s Paddington Station, is from the as-yet-untitled sequel to director Guy Ritchie’s 2009 “Sherlock Holmes” starring Downey Jr. as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s signature literary creation and Law as Watson. The new film is due for release in December of this year.
