Please let this be true! Not only would adding Pitt to the Downey-Law lineup help keep the Holmes franchise afloat, but Downey and Pitt in the same film is pretty much my dream — both guys have that wise-cracking persona, good looks, and it would be so much fun to see them spar.
The downside: Pitt's character Moriarity is supposedly only shown in shadow according to the script, making him impossible to actually see. Not a single shot of Pitt's face? Bummer.
No word yet if Pitt will be affecting a British accent or using his Inglorious Basterds hillbilly.
