Guy Ritchie Is Trying To Snag WHO For Sherlock Holmes Sequel?!

| Filed under: Brad PittFilm FlickersGuy Ritchie


Wow, we're going to hope that this rumor comes to fruition, because he's literally the ONLY other person that we'd want to see in that role!

Sources are claiming that director Guy Ritchie, who is putting the finishing touches on the script of his sequel to Sherlock Holmes, is reaching out to none other than Daniel Day-Lewis to take on the role of villianous Professor Moriarty!

The character was seen briefly in the original as a shadowy figure. For a while, we were hearing rumblings that Brad Pitt was set to play him, but if Lewis is up for the part, then we're not going to complain!

Every role he plays instantly becomes awesome!

What do U think?? Should Daniel Day-Lewis play Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes 2??

    If he gets Daniel Day Lewis, the movie will be a rousing success.

  2. 2

    Jude Law and Brad Pitt? Bring it on! Can we get George in there somewhere too?

  3. 3

    He would be awesome. Completely.

  4. 4

    Sexiest actor alive

  5. 5

    he was amazing as the villian in 'gangs of new york'!

  6. 6

    It would be terrific if DDL took the part. However, he's very selective about the roles he takes, and takes so few because he literally lives as the character during filming. It's a big strain on his marriage and family life. He actually lived in a jail cell and had crew torment him during off ours of filming In The Name Of The Father.

    guy that plays snape would be a good choice, too… but DDL is an outstanding choice for this part. Can't see my beloved brad in this role, though

    YESSSSSSSSS!!!!! He is an amazing actor! He truly becomes whatever character he plays. Yes yes yes please!

  12. 12

    Yes, this would be really cool!! Daniel Day-Lewis is the best, and the first Sherlock Holmes was great. He and Robert Downey, Jr!!! Sweeet. And there's comedy, DDL hasn't done a comedy since the '80s, so he should! He's still just as sexy. I'm also enjoying seeing him in There Will Be Blood clips mixed with BP Senate hearings on youtube. I'm sure everybody was just waiting for those to show up. lol

    That would be amazing! I felt the first movie was only so-so but had potential in the sequel, Daniel Day Lewis as Moriarty would be exactly what it needs to go from so-so to awesome

  14. 14

    I doubt he would deign to work with Guy Ritchie - he usually only works with serious cineastes

    lets face it, Ritchie couldn't direct a seagull to the coast

    Anything that Daniel Day Lewis does is brilliant so if Guy can get him, I'm sure the movie will be amazing!!!

  16. 16

    He'd be so much better in that role than Brad Pitt.!!! Daniel is hot and a GREAT actor. If Guy Ritchie can pull this out of his ass and get the guy who does movies every, what, 6 years? in SH2, props to him.

  17. 17

    Still love Brad. But, Daniel would be awesome!! Anything he does is awesome.

  18. 18

    Oh I hope that this happens! I love Brad, but I would prefer this idea! Excellent choice.

    I'll bet he's trying to snag Lewis. He'd better have a strong cast, or Lewis will run away with the whole thing.

  21. 21

    Perfect for Moriarty, though Eric Porter will be a hard act to follow.

  22. 22

    Madonna should play it clearly!

  23. 23

    Wow…he would be amazing…best choice for that role :) PLS DANIEL TAKE THE OFFER!! :D

  24. 24


  25. 25

    A much better choice than Brad Twit….

  26. 26

    They are actually doing a sequel to the terrible movie????????? This photo makes me want to go watch The Last of the Mohichans.

  27. 27

    The first one was sooo bad though! Why would anyone pay to sit through that torture again?

  28. 28

    unless the script is amazing he wont go for it

  30. 30

    HELL YEAH!!! he's an amazingly versatile actor!
