Daniel Day-Lewis has reportedly signed up to fight Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming ‘Sherlock Holmes‘ sequel – according to tabloid rag The Sun.

Rumours have been flying around regarding who will play the supersleuth’s nemesis Professor Moriarty, ever since Guy Ritchie announced plans to bring Holmes back to the big screen following last year’s adaptation.

Brad Pitt was rumored to be in the running to take on the role for the follow-up, but a new report suggests Ritchie has hired Day-Lewis to tackle Downey, Jr.‘s Holmes in the next film. It’s been reported that the Oscar-winner has agreed to star in the as-yet untitled movie, which has been ear-marked for a release next year.

Better get cracking, Guy!
