Brad Pitt to Star in Sherlock Holmes Sequel

Last month we heard rumors that Brad Pitt was joining the cast of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. But the rumors were quickly shot down.

But now we hear talk again of Brad’s involvement, but this time, it’s regarding the sequel! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers has already begun developing the sequel to the film, and Pitt is currently in discussions with producers to play Holmes' nemesis Moriarty.

There’s no deal set in places as of now, but we hope it’s true! Talk about an all-star cast! Robert Downey Jr. is Sherlock Holmes, Jude Law plays his sidekick Watson, and Rachel McAdams is Irene! They need Brad to complete the cast!

We’ll keep you up to date on Brad’s involvement. In the mean time, Sherlock Holmes opens Christmas Day.
