Madge's Man Goes Sleuthing

Guy Ritchie will write and direct a new take on Sherlock Holmes for Warner Bros., basing his depiction of the Conan Doyle detective on Lionel Wigram's action-packed comic. In other words, look for the sleuth to be something of a Victorian action figure, complete with sword-wielding and Bond-worthy fisticuffs. Sherlock Holmes has been adapted to film more than any other fictional character, being portrayed by 75 different actors in 200 films.
