So just how well did Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows do at the box office? Well, it hasn’t been released yet, and according to actions at Warner Bros. it doesn’t matter.
Word on the street has Warner Bros. hiring Drew Pearce to write the third installment of the Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law franchise. Pearce is currently writing Iron Man 3. So unlike a certain studio that seems to be knee jerk reacting to everything shadow on the ground, Warner looks to take risks and chances with their franchises even before audiences weigh in on the battle between Holmes and Porfessor Moriarty.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens December 16, 2011.
