As Expected, Jude Law Appears as Dr. Watson

Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on these new photos from the set of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.Ritchie’s reimagining of the famous detective stories features a stellar cast, comprised of Jude Law as Dr. Watson, Rachel McAdams as American love interest Irene Adler, and Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes himself.Mr. Madonna explained the direction of the film as such:

“We’re going to try to introduce something we haven’t seen before, authentic to the narrative…we’re trying to make this film fresh. We should have some good fight sequences.”

Sounds good to me!After Iron Man, I’ve pretty much agreed to be RDJ’s slave for life.And what could be better than British detectives kicking ass?The answer is nothing.And from the sounds of it, Ritchie is pretty confident that our main men will deliver strong performances:

“My one concern was the accents but this is no longer the case. Robert Downey has the best English accent I’ve ever heard.”
