New Sherlock Holmes 3 not-Ritchie director announced.

The third being: no Guy Ritchie. I’m sorry, but I like Guy Ritchie films. Apparently I’m currently fairly alone in this, judging from the box office from the Man From UNCLE and King Arthur flicks; but those were fun, dammit. And so were the Sherlock Holmes flicks. I am not entirely sure that the next one will be as fun.
