Brad Pitt In Sherlock Holmes Sequel? Rumor

The Mulroneys spoke for the first-time about the sequel to Collider.

They’ve been typing away at their keyboards since just before Holmes was released. Basically the studio wanted to know if they had any ideas and after a successful pitch, they were on-board. As expected, they’ve been working with director Guy Ritchie since.

What about the long-standing rumblings of Brad Pitt appearing as Moriarty? The two were coy:

“I hope Brad likes it. Let’s leave it at that. To be political, we should say nothing.”

Either negotiations went to Hell or the studio wants to officially announce Pitt themselves. With filming expected to start later this fall (after Downey finishes Gravity with director Alfonso Cuarón), it was about time we started hearing something.

Interesting choice of Pitt for the role of Moriarty. The question is can all three actors share the same screen.? Hmmm
