Guy Ritchie is gonna be pissed.

Turns out he's not the only one working on a Sherlock Holmes movie!

According to a new report, Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell have signed on to do a Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, 40-year old Virgin) backed Sherlock Holmes movie.

Cohen will play the role of Sherlock and Ferrell will grace the screen as Watson.

We're looking forward to seeing the Talladega Nights co-stars together again!

With those 3 comedic minds working together we're expecting to see lots of funny.

What do U think?

    I think Will Ferrell is a one trick pony and don't understand anyone who thinks this man is still funny.

    The Judd Apatow comedy formula is very old…lets hope he mixes it up for this one as it has a lot of potential…assuming Will Farrell can pull off a hit after his last tragedy that was Semi-Pro.

    Sounds like complete crap. Ferrell can't act worth anything…..the only good work he has done was in Stranger than Fiction. Ugh, I can't believe they are doing a movie based off of such a great story, they are going to turn it into complete garbage.

    no movie will ferrell has been in was funny.
    that guy seriously sucks at life, and acting.

  21. 5 says – reply to this


    21

    They're destroying a classic.
    The only reason they're asking these "funny men" to do Sherlock Holmes is so they can dumb it down for all those retards out there.
    GREAT JOB. *blah*

  22. SUCK says – reply to this


    22

    Let's see - Talladega Nights really, really, really sucked. 40YO virgin sucked. Knocked up sucked.
    *
    I am guessing that the movie will never be released because it will suck so much. Either that, or it will be sold globally as a sleep aid or something to make you throw-up in case of accidental ingestion of poisons!!

    I hope this is funnier than the movies Will Ferrell has been in lately.



  25. 25

    It's going to be just like anchorman taricky bobby and semi pro. he is the same person in every movie. bummer.

    Will Ferrell??? Really??? Again??? How much more un-funny do we have to endure from him?

    Won't even bother to rent this from Blockbuster.

    I think that Will Ferrell's movies have sucked over the past couple of years (with the exception of "Stranger Than Fiction"). I think that teaming up with Sacha Baron Cohen and the BRILLIANT Judd Apatow to do something different is just what his career needs! He's very talented, he just needs to stop doing the same old shit time and again!

    I like Cohen and I loved Ferrell on SNL. But 95% of Will Ferrel's movies suck; I hope this one is part of the 5%.

    Judd Apatow is brilliant, I would see his version over Mister Madonna's any day. That and I have a comedy crush on Will Ferrell.

  33. jo says – reply to this


    33

    this is the worst idea ever.
    sherlock holmes is a classic. ferrell will play watson as an idiot, something he most definitely is not. i hate this.

  34. Karl says – reply to this


    34

    I think anyone with any sense realises that this movie is going to suck big time, Sascha Baron Cohen is a complete dick and I cannot understand why anyone would think he is funny.
    Sherlock Holmes is a fantastic literary character and extremely difficult to turn into a comedy without ruining Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation.
    These guys should take a look at Without a Clue starring the fantastic Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley then realise that they could never do anything as good and find another movie to suck at.

    omg that is beyond hawt, they better have a sex scene!!! I'M SERIOUS!!

    is will farrel gonna play a different character for once?? all his characters have been exactly the same. dude can't act

  37. Uhm, says – reply to this


    37

    The character of Holmes is an anglo saxon, not an Ashkanazi Jew with a Jewfro.

  38. Uhm, says – reply to this


    38

    So Sherlock hokmes is going to wear a yarlmuke on top of a Jewfro instead of the classic Homes hat on an anglo saxon head

    you tool its old news and you have it mixed up will is playing sherlock and sasha is playing watson.



  53. 53

    I think Baron Cohen is one of the sexiest men alive.

  54. homie says – reply to this


    54

    Cohen only has his anti-arab shitck and the unfortunate Farrell has shown no talent at all. Yep, another bomb like the fresh pimp`s latest. Can`t they just go away together?

    56

    I want it to be good, but I think that it might be kinda sucky. Of course crappy movies do make money. Remember Semi-Pro?
    …Exactly…
    I personally have had enough of Will Ferell.

  57. Nutsa says – reply to this

    Two sorry bastards making sorry asssssss movie hoping sorry ass suckers pay $10 to see sorry ass entertainment. Suck my sorry ass nutsack.

    It'll be interesting to see them have to play already established characters.

    Will Ferrell sucks now.

    Ali G is still funny.

    awesome.
    but i think if they're gonna do a serious sherlock film hugh Laurie sould be sherlock. he would be amazing.

    Will Ferrell is NOT funny or humorous. He bores the shit out of most of us who are out of our diapers. He's also a grade A douche bag.

    63

    Ali G? Funny. King Julien XIII? REALLY funny.
    Borat kinda undid a lot of the funny that I thought was Sascha Baron Cohen.

    I can forgive Will Ferell for not being funny in his movies, cuz the guy is just so damned likeable. (Check out Gary Sanchez … Viva Paraguay!) Besides, I think he's a decent dramatic actor.

    No one's going to see the Sherlock Homes movie anyway, so it does't matter.



  64. 64

    Ok, after I saw him in that sling man bathing suit, and his bear body, and … well, what an asshole he was as Borat, which makes me think he either thinks he's way too superior for you goyim, or he's that much of a "fuck you" person, I gotta say, WHO GIVES A FUCK?

    ugh. l like these two, but WHY WHY WHY are they messing up a total classic…that SHOULD be done in a serious matter. The books were serious…why are they turning them into a comedy??! They will totally ruin it. Dumbing shizz down for the American public as usual.

  74. Amand says – reply to this


    74

    I don’t know how I feel about Sherlock Holmes being a comedy. And Will Ferrell doesn’t know how to not be Will Ferrell…he would not be my millionth choice.

    But I think if done right, Sacha could be real good as Holmes.

    I love how everyone is dissing Will Ferrell, who is actually a very good comedian, everyone has a bad movie or two. Look and Tom Cruise, his movie keeps getting pushed back and no one says anything about him, and he's CRAZY.

    I like both of these guys (although I think they're going to run Ferrell into the ground if they keep giving him the same roles all the time), but as Sherlock Holmes and Watson? Just horrible.

    Re: Uhm, – You are absolutely right. No Jew should ever play an Anglo-Saxon. It would be so much more appropriate if SBC played Jesus. I'm sick of seeing Jesus played by Anglo-Saxons; SBC would be so much more authentic. He wore a yarmulke too.
