Sherlock Holmes versus Sherlock Holmes
The Guardian notes:
Just as Sherlock Holmes had his Moriarty, so Guy Ritchie has his Sacha Baron Cohen. Barely a month after the announcement that the British director is to shoot an “all action” Holmes adventure tale comes news of a rival project spearheaded by the Borat creator. Columbia Pictures’ as yet untitled production will star Baron Cohen as the great detective and Will Ferrell as Dr Watson, his endlessly admiring assistant. Variety reports that the film is being scripted by Tropic Thunder author Etan Cohen and will be co-produced by Judd Apatow.
While Ritchie insists that his version will “take advantage of [Holmes’s] skills as a boxer and swordsman”, the Columbia project looks set to take a more comedic stance.
