Cohen Enters HOLMES AND WATSON For Sony

Posted August 17, 2016 by Lee Golden in News

Well, it’s not the Downey Jr./Law threequel that I and many others have been waiting for, nor is it the long rumoured Step Brothers sequel that some of us have foolishly believed was underway thanks to any number of spam and satire articles currently online. At any rate this latest update will surely please the comedy crowd some with news of a third reteaming of talents Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly by way of late 19th century author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

For this, we look to Holmes & Watson, a Gary Sanchez/Mosaic production from Sony Pictures featuring a comedic take on the iconic Sherlock Holmes stories that will undoubtedly consist of a world of raunchy and spectacular comedy as they face off with foes from around the world. According to Deadline, Etan Cohen, the scribe behind the thought-provoking Idiocracy (2006), Tropic Thunder (2008), and debut helmer of Ferrell’s 2015 headliner, Get Hard with actor Kevin Hart, is writing and directing the film.

Production is expected to commence after November.

Cohen is currently tapped to revisit Cannonball Run for Warner Bros. following announcements earlier this year while Reilly is expected to appear in next year’s Kong: Skull Island.
