ET's Kevin Frazier is exclusively on the 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel set to catch Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in action, and the driving force behind the camera, director Guy Ritchie, is revealing 'Sherlock' secrets!
"There is plenty of action, a degree of comedy, and … we've got some stunts," reports Guy. "Action-thriller -- that's the genre that we fall under, apparently, so I hope we tick those prerequisite boxes. … I hope its going to be an improved version of the last one. We tried to trump it in as many ways as we can. We just hope you're going to get a more entertaining movie."
The 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel (in theaters Dec. 16) finds Holmes and Watson facing their toughest adversary, Professor Moriarty, played by Jared Harris. 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace also joins the sleuthing pair for all the action as a mysterious femme fatale.
"I enjoyed the process of the last one so much that I was very enthusiastic to come back and try it again -- I think that enthusiasm has eclipsed my anxiety," says Guy of taking on the pressures of a sequel. "It has been fun, and I love working with Rob and Jude. As a team I think we function pretty well."
Aside from the movie -- and the fact that his kids are no longer impressed by what their dad does for a living -- one thing you may not know about Guy is that he's planning to make beer professionally.
"If the movie does well, then I can build [a] brewery," says Guy. "Bit of Ritchie, I think it's called. I'll keep you posted on that."
