Will Ferrell And Sacha Baron Cohen Take On Sherlock Holmes
Well this should be interesting!
Columbian pictures is working on an untitled comedy that will star Sacha Baron Cohen as master detective Sherlock Holmes and Will Ferrell as Watson, his crime-solving partner.
Not to be confused with Warner Bro’s more action-based Guy Ritchie effort – this one aims to take a fresh, comedic stab at Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic sleuth stories.
Matt Tolmach, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, tells Variety.com:
“Just the idea of Sacha and Will as Sherlock Holmes and Watson makes us laugh.
“Sacha and Will are two of the funniest and most talented guys on the planet, and having them take on these two iconic characters is frankly hilarious.”
