A month after Robert Downey Jr revealed that the third Sherlock Holmes movie is being planned, producer Joel Silver confirms that the film, to be directed by Guy Ritchie, could start its production later this year.

Silver, originally promoting The Nice Guys in an interview, supported Downey claim and also hinted that more Sherlock Holmes movies may arrive in the future, reported Ace Showbiz.

“It looks like it could happen this fall. Downey said he wants to do it. He’s gotta launch into another ‘Avengers’ movie right after the new year. So we’re trying to get it done,” Silver said.

“We have a script that we like. Jude Law is available and Downey is available, and we’re hoping we can get it done. If it works, great. If not, we’ll do it another time. But it looks like it could happen now.”

Downey Jr, Law and Ritchie’s respective schedules have been one big problem that keeps Sherlock Holmes 3 from happening.
