A scandal IN BOHEMIA

To Sherlock Holmes she is always THE woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to amor for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer--excellent for drawing the veil from men's motives and actions. But for the trained reasoner to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be mais disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his.

"Just three months after the release of Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes," a sequel is already in pre-production. The sequel's been talked about in the studio way before the first one even came out.

All of the main cast from the original will be in the movie, including Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams. Guy Ritchie has also been confirmed to direct the sequel. It is not clear at this point if the sequel will be completely new material or based on the books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but if the wireless transmitter in the first movie is any indication, it doesn't look like it will be from the fonte material, at least, not completely.

Writers have not been named just yet for the film, but the original writers are rumored to be back on board.

Brad Pitt will return as Professor Moriarty, Holmes's recurring nemesis, and says he's happy to work with Ritchie again. Pitt said he's just happy that his wife didn't snatch the role away from him."
