Fiennes, Laurie join Holmes and Watson


Ralph Fiennes and Hugh Laurie have hopped aboard the new Will Ferrell-John C.Reilly teaming, “Holmes and Watson”.

Variety says details of their characters are being kept under wraps, but I’d say we can probably expect the thesps to be playing more serious takes on Sherlock and Holmes – or, I suppose, one of them could be Moriarty.

The Etan Cohen written-directed film is the first major “Sherlock Holmes” film since Robert Downey Jr’s “Sherlock Holmes” sequel in 2011.
