Guy Ritchie's 'Sherlock Holmes' Will 'Deliver And Surprise People'
"I hope so," said producer Susan Downey, wife of Sherlock actor Robert Downey, Jr. "He did an amazing job, on a scale that no one's seen him work on before. He delivered. I think it's going to surprise people."
Ritchie's British films were characterized by kinetic violence and flashy camera work. He didn't have to tone that down for Holmes. "You'll see the flare and you'll see Guy's touch on it, but it's a whole different canvas," Downey continued.
Warner Brothers is expected to show footage from Sherlock Holmes at this week's San Diego Comic Con, including a panel discussion with the filmmakers for fans packing the convention center's Hall H. Joel Silver, who also produced, and has shepherded major films like Die Hard, Lethal Weapon and The Matrix, is also pleased to brag about Ritchie's film.
"It's fantastic," Silver said. "I think it's a triumph that really is fantastic."
Sherlock Holmes opens this Christmas.
