Rachel McAdams

Sherlock Holmes has found a lady to complement his adventures as a gentleman detective.

Rachel McAdams (the beam of light that brightened Mean Girls, The Wedding Crashers, and The Notebook) will be bringing her uncanny talents to Guy Ritchie’s re-imagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world famous character. She joins the already stellar cast that includes Robert Downey, Jr. as the titular Victorian hero, Jude Law as his observant colleague, and Mark Strong as the big bad (Blackwood—who is apparently not Moriarty).

McAdams will be portraying Holmes’ love interest, Irene Adler, who appeared in but one Doyle story, “A Scandal in Bohemia.” The use of this character and the employment of this actor are just two in a long line of interesting choices we have seen during the preproduction of this re-imagining, which begins photography in October. The film is primarily based on a forthcoming comic book written by producer Lionel Wigram, titled “Holmes,” which sees the 19th Century icon in a modern setting with less observation and more action-adventure.

I don’t have to tell you that modernizations have traditionally had more lows than highs, but– I mean– it’s Guy Ritchie. On top of that, who doesn’t love Rachel McAdams and her dimples? The same goes for RDJ, who is the man of the hour. Let’s reserve any hype or judgment until the light hits the silver screen.

What do you think of Rachel McAdams as Sherlock’s love interest?
