Brad Pitt To Star In ‘Holmes’ Sequel As Villain Moriarty

It looks as if Brad Pitt is, in fact, going to star in a Sherlock Holmes sequel despite the strong protestations of…well, Sabba.

The star of Inglourious Basterds is reportedly going to star in the follow-up to the Guy Ritchie-directed Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.

Pitt is to take on the role of Sherlock’s nemesis, Moriarty, although The Hollywood Reporter claims that no deal has yet to be inked. However, if the box office success of Pitt’s most recent movie project with Quentin Tarantino is any indication, Warner Bros. is most likely going to hurry up and seal this deal.
