One sequel that has been teased for years but never seems to make it out of development is that of a third entry in Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” franchise.
The Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law-led films were released in 2009 and 2011, giving Downey another big franchise outside of “Iron Man” and generally being well received.
There’s been talk of a third one for a while, with Warner Bros. Pictures going so far as to announce plans for one to hit Christmas Day 2020 – but delays and the pandemic deep-sixed that idea.
One person who was linked to that project was “Rocketman” and “Eddie the Eagle” director Dexter Fletcher who was to take over for Ritchie in the director’s chair with Downey and Law expected to reprise their Holmes and Watson roles.
With Fletcher currently out talking about his Paramount+ series “The Offer,” he spoke with Collider and revealed he was pretty confident “Sherlock Holmes 3” will happen, it’s mostly a matter of timing:
“The pandemic derailed it. I do think it will get made. I think it has to be made. I don’t know what the timeline of that is, unfortunately, but I believe it should be. It’s fantastic. I think it’s about all the right people being at the right place, at the right time. I think it’s that.
It’s one of those cruel twists of fate, where the pandemic hit and that scattered people around the world to the wind. But I know that the appetite is huge for it, and I’m sure there are other people acutely aware of that as well. But I believe it should be because it’s brilliant. I very much hope so.”
The comments follow in the wake of news back in April which indicated Downey Jr. would produce two different scripted series for HBO Max that take place in the same world as his “Sherlock Holmes” films. Both those shows would focus on new characters who would be introduced in a third film.

This family needed to book a lifetime of sessions with Cami the therapist.
As last week’s episode of Legacies put The Vampire Diaries universe to rest, viewers said goodbye to the Mikaelson family for good. The finale featured a cameo by fan-favorite vamp Klaus, who appeared one last time to bid a final farewell to his daughter, Hope.
Klaus, along with his siblings, make an appearance in all three of the franchise’s TV series (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies) as the world’s very first vampires with centuries’ worth of baggage.
Seriously. No family is perfect, but the Mikaelsons are one of the most toxic households to grace television. Here are eight examples…
1. When Klaus would dagger his siblings for literal decades.
2. When Klaus was super controlling of Rebekah’s love life (and also killed a bunch of her boyfriends…).
3. When their parents were just super toxic in general.
4. When Elijah was in love with Klaus’s baby mama.
5. When Kol pranked Rebekah by body-swapping her with an evil witch.
6. When Freya’s devotion to the family caused consistent turbulence in her dating life.
7. When Marcel’s complicated relationship with Klaus caused extreme highs and lows.
8. When the family was cursed so Elijah wiped his memory.
OK, these guys are a lot of drama, but they do have some redeeming moments. Here are six times the Mikaelsons siblings were endearing:
1. When all of the siblings put Hope’s well-being before their own.
2. When Hope carried on her family’s legacy.
3. When they honored their vow of always and forever.
4. When they made sacrifices for one another.
5. When they finally admitted to their mistakes.
6. When they realized that they deserve happiness too.

“We Had To Do Something”: Crowds Are Gathering Across The US To Protest The Overturning Of Roe V. Wade

The Suttons walked an hour from their hotel to the court.
“We had to do something,” Sutton said. “I just could not believe that [the abortion rights issue] was going to come around again.”
Demonstrations were also planned for major metro areas across the US Friday evening, including in New York and Los Angeles.
In a 6–3 decision by the conservative majority, the court overturned its 1973 opinion in Roe v. Wade and upheld Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. That will give states — mostly in the South and Midwest — the ability to outlaw the medical procedure, forcing people to travel long distances to places where it’s still legal. For many, however, that’s cost prohibitive.
President Joe Biden and others warned that the Supreme Court decision had set the US on an “extreme and dangerous path” that could lead to the overturn of other civil rights, including those for same-sex marriage. As Pride Month draws to a close, the timing of the Roe decision, combined with Justice Clarence Thomas’s separate opinion that his colleagues should reconsider other rights previously granted by the court, is expected to draw even more people to demonstrations.
“I don’t know what to tell people other than we have come too far to let these things be taken away from us,” Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the 2015 Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, told BuzzFeed News on Friday.
