Elementary my dear Pitt

With Guy Ritchie’s big screen adaptation of Sherlock Holmes not out till the end of the year, rumours are already doing the rounds that Brad Pitt is to star in the sequel (presumably if it’s not a flop).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mr Jolie has allegedly finalised a deal with Warner Bros to play Holmes’ elusive arch nemesis, Professor Moriarty. If Pitt takes the role it will see him reunited with director Ritchie for the first time since he played an incoherent Irish boxer in Snatch. Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law are also set to star in the sequel.

Sherlock Holmes hits the silver screens on the 26 December and if you ain’t seen the trailer yet, do, it actually looks quite good (count, chicken, hatch, don't)...

Take a look.
