Brad Pitt May Play Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes Sequel
Posted 09.22.09 by reelz
While Sherlock Holmes won't appear in theaters for another three months, Warner Bros. is counting on it to be a hit — so much so that the studio is already moving ahead with plans for a sequel. Word coming from The Hollywood Reporter says they've already hired writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney, and get this: "Brad Pitt has had discussions with producers to star as Holmes' nemesis Moriarty."
We figure this must be more than a rumor because, truth be told, this isn't the first report that Pitt has been connected to the movie. There is some evidence that Brad may actually have a small cameo in this first film to set up the next. It wouldn't surprise us, as that's the way they are doing it in Hollywood these days.
In any case, we hope this one is true because we are intrigued by the thought of a battle of wits between Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock and Brad Pitt as Moriarty.
