Sherlock Holmes already has a sequel in the works

According to Variety, Warner Brothers is so bullish on their Christmas Day release Sherlock Holmes that the studio is asking screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney to get started on penning a sequel, in advance of re-signing director Guy RItchie and stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams. And according to rumor, Brad Pitt is in talks to play a major role in the second movie, as Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty. Interesting news, given the mixed fan reaction to the Holmes trailer, which makes the movie look… well, non-canonical.
