Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his friend and colleague, Dr Watson, in SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS. Filmmaker Guy Ritchie returns to direct the sequel to the smash hit SHERLOCK HOLMES, which also reunites producers Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin. Bruce Berman and Steve Clark-Hall served as executive producers.
In her first English-speaking role, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, who gained international attention in the Swedish film THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, plays a mysterious Gypsy named Sim, who becomes allied with Holmes and Watson in their quest to stop Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris - TV’s MAD MEN, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON).
Returning from the first film, the cast also includes Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler; Kelly Reilly as Watson’s bride, Mary Morstan; Eddie Marsan as Inspector Lestrade; and Geraldine James as Holmes’s long-suffering landlady, Mrs Hudson. Stephen Fry (ALICE IN WONDERLAND, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE) plays Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s decidedly eccentric older brother.
SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS was written by Michele Mulroney & Kieran Mulroney. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were created by the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and appear in stories and novels by him. Ritchie once again collaborated with the behind-the-scenes team from the first movie, including director of photography Philippe Rousselot, production designer Sarah Greenwood, editor James Herbert, costume designer Jenny Beavan, and composer Hans Zimmer.
