Sherlock Holmes and Watson are returning to the big screen, but it’s not Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law. Instead, this stars two actors who have been rivals, brothers, and now the iconic detective duo, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Welcome to the world of Holmes & Watson, the new comedy from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. As most fans know, Ferrell and Reilly have teamed up before in fan favorites like Talladega Nights and Step Brothers. So it only makes sense they would tackle the investigative crime solving duo as seen in this recently released trailer.
Holmes & Watson is directed by Etan Cohen and stars Will Ferrell (Holmes), John C. Reilly (Watson), Rebecca Hall (Dr. Grace Hart), Ralph Fiennes (Moriarty), Kelly Macdonald (Mrs. Hudson), Lauren Lapkus (Millie), Hugh Laurie (Mycroft), Noah Jupe (Doxy), Pam Ferris (Queen Victoria), Bella Ramsey (Flotsam), Rob Brydon (Inspector Lestrade), and Bronson Webb (Jonathan Nightingale).
Originally Sacha Baron Cohen was to have played the role of Dr. Watson. With his withdrawal, John C. Reilly stepped into once again work with Will Ferrell. Are you excited to see the comedic duo once again on the big screen and this time as the icon Holmes and Watson? Deduce your opinion and share it with us here at GVNation Yard. “The Games afoot!”
