The role earned Robert Downey
Joel Silver the producer of "Sherlock Holmes" as well as the DC Project "Lobo," and Guy Ritchie,the director of "Holmes," and attached to direct "Lobo"
for Warner Bros. wants to put "Lobo" in the backburner so that they can turn "Sherlock Holmes" into a franchise as quickly as possible.
"I don't think he's going to do it now," Silver on Ritchie directing "Lobo." "The studio wants us and Guy to focus on making another 'Sherlock Holmes.' So I think we're going to be doing that. But we're seeing what happens with this. Everybody is analyzing everything. It's all kind of happening right now as we talk. 'Sherlock' is sitting at just about $400 million in worldwide gross and showing itself to be pretty effective and pretty strong. So we're trying to see if we can do something quickly with another 'Sherlock Holmes' movie. We have some ideas and some good story points."
