Jude Law Wants a Third 'Sherlock Holmes' Movie. Do You?

Should Hollywood dial up a third Sherlock Holmes movie? The answer seems elementary. 
 
So far, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law’s crime-solving franchise has banked more than $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales. The second movie, A Game of Shadows, earned slightly less than its predecessors at the domestic box, yet global audiences still flocked, proving there is a demand for more stories with RDJ as history’s most clever (and self-centered) sleuth. 
 
Now Law has gone on record stating that he’s ready to make a third, providing everyone’s schedules can gel. Speaking to Collider recently, Law confirmed: 
 
“There’s certainly talk of it, and I know there’s a script being played around with, but Downey’s a busy boy and I’m a busy boy so we’ll see. But we want to [do another one].  We’re a very happy team and we have a lot of fun and we also think there’s still a lot of legs in the duo.” 
 
There certainly are plenty of Sherlock Holmes stories to explore on the big screen, a point that’s being made in the two television series which are mining the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for weekly episodes. 
 
The problem, of course, is Downey’s commitment to Marvel. He’s still shooting Iron Man 3. He’ll eventually have to don the suit for The Avengers 2. And the actor probably wants to break up the monotony of playing either Tony Stark or Sherlock Holmes by mixing in a one-off drama or comedy here and there. 
 
But the game seems to be afoot for a third Sherlock adventure, perhaps with Guy Ritchie back in the director’s chair. What do you think? Do you still enjoy this franchise? Are you ready to see where Holmes and Watson go on their next adventure? And which famous Holmes story do you think should provide the backbone for Sherlock Holmes 3? Share your thoughts below.
