Rachel will return for ‘Sherlock Holmes 2‘ but not as a lead according to Scifiwire.com.
Rachel McAdams will return, but …
If he’s planning to shoot in the fall, Silver will have to cast his Moriarty soon. Downey is back as Holmes, and Jude Law returns as Dr. Watson. Silver even said that McAdams would reappear but that she wouldn’t be the leading lady this time.
“She’ll be present,” was all Silver would say.
The start of shooting is not that far away.
First off, Silver thinks it will be ready to shoot before the end of this year. “We’ll start shooting in the fall and coming out maybe the following year,” Silver said on May 22 in Hollywood.
