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.

    I’m wondering if this is supposed to be part of a trilogy from the get-go. In particular, with Moriarty involved, I was thinking this movie may end with the waterfall scene and Sherlock Holmes presumed dead . . . kind of like the downer “Empire Strikes Back” ending. Then the next movie opens with Sherlock Holmes revealed to be alive, unbeknowest to Watson, who isn’t too happy to find Holmes kept him in the dark.

    Is this really a risk? I think this film will do gangbusters.
