Young Sherlock Holmes Remake Will Probably Be Written By Disney’s Go-To Sequeler

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the past few years we’ve truly been left wanting for Sherlock Holmes adaptations. Why, since 2009 all we’ve had is BBC’s modern-day update Sherlock, CBS’ modern-day update Elementary, $215 million worth of big screen blockbuster versions courtesy of Guy Ritchie and, best of all, The Asylum’s low-budget mockbuster which featured Sherlock Holmes fighting a dinosaur and a robot (not at the same time).

Fear no more, readers, for the long wait is over and your thirst for more Holmes goodness will soon be quenched. Talks about a Paramount remake of Barry Levinson’s 1985 prequel Young Sherlock Holmes have been in the air for a couple of months, and it seems that the studio are finally closing in on a writer for the film.

According to The Wrap, said writer is Evan Spiliotopoulos, who is best known for writing every direct-to-DVD Disney sequel known to man. That’s a bit of an exaggeration, but his previous credits include Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time, The Lion King 1 1/2, The Jungle Book 2, Tarzan 2, The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning, and the forthcoming Wanted 2. Admittedly that last one is not a Disney sequel, but I hope it will have extended musical numbers anyway.
