Here is a brand new photo from the upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” film. The shot features a look at Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock and Jude Law as Dr. Watson.
Mark Strong (RocknRolla) who plays occult-dabling satanist Lord Blackwood in the film spoke to TotalFilm about how the upcoming Guy Ritchie-directed “Sherlock Holmes” movie will end.
He told Total Film:
“There’s a fantastic sequence where we duel to the death on a half-built Tower Bridge. It’s a perfect way to end the movie, Robert and I hammering seven bells out of each other on top of this swinging bridge with Victorian London as a backdrop. It’s going to be amazing.”
“There’s a touch of Dracula about him,” he said of the character. “He needed to have an element of showmanship about him by virtue of the fact that he’s trying to persuade everyone around him that he’s so in league with the Devil that he’s able to conquer death. I just wanted to make him an equal adversary of Sherlock Holmes.”
The full interview appears in issue 153 of Total Film magazine.
In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous characters, “Sherlock Holmes” sends Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will battle as never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country.
Guy Ritchie’s (Snatch, RocknRolla) “Sherlock Holmes” also stars Kelly Reilly and Rachel McAdams.
“Sherlock Holmes” is scheduled for release on November 20, 2009.
