Back in 2016 it was announced that dynamic comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would reunite for the first time since Step Brothers (2008), as Holmes and Watson.
Holmes and Watson is set to take on the sleuth in a whole new, comedic light. With Etan Cohen in the Director’s chair (Get Hard, Men in Black 3) and our long lost duo in the title roles, we can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue as this project develops.
The film is currently on location in Greenwich, home of time and frequent location choice for various period productions; not forgetting the occasional superhero film, such as Thor: The Dark World (2013). This is not the first rodeo for Greenwich University and the Royal Naval College as far as Holmes adaptations are concerned, oh no, Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows (2011) was also shot here.

Holmes and Watson is shaping up to contain a stellar line-up. Not only do we have Ralph Fiennes, Rebecca Hall, and Hugh Laurie attached to the project, but lovable Welshman Rob Brydon taking on the role of Inspector Lestrade. So far John C. Reilly has been a confirmed sighting in Greenwich, but as filming gets underway, who knows what will transpire over the coming week. We look forward to seeing how Holmes and Watson unfolds.
