Brad Pitt in “Sherlock Holmes 2”? Yes please!

After ‘Sherlock Holmes’ managed to uncover more than $65 million in its opening weekend, ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ is being planned with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law already committed. But the big surprise will be the addition of Brad Pitt as Professor Moriarty.

“The director, Guy Ritchie, loves Brad,” an industry source tells me. “He has worked with him before and thinks he is one of the most underrated actors working today. Guy knows that everyone thinks of as a Pitt as a pretty boy and can’t wait to turn him into the world’s greatest supervillain. It will definitely make the sequel a must-see.”


Pitt and Ritchie worked together on 2000’s ‘Snatch,’ (loved that movie!) in which Pitt played a mumbling, can’t-understand-a-word-he-says Irish gypsy fighter. He definitely wasn’t a ‘pretty boy’ in it, and hopefully that’s exactly what Ritchie can pull out of him again.

As for Brad, an insider tells me he’s “very interested in taking on the role and happy they aren’t considering his kick-ass partner Angelina for the part.”

I still have to see the first movie! I hear that it’s very good.

It really doesn’t matter to me. The first Sherlock Holmes movie was fantastic. Robert Downey Jr. was remarkable in it. He is so very talented and of course sexy. It is not necessary to have Brad Pitt in a movie with Robert. Robert can take a movie and make it a hit all by himself without Pitt’s involvement. So, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter if Pitt is involved or not.
