The Latest to Join Sherlock Holmes: Rachel McAdams

These two make a pretty magnificent pair, don't you think? Last we heard about Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes movie, Jude Law was getting set to play Watson to Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes. The latest casting news is that Rachel McAdams will join the two men. The Hollywood Reporter explains:

The movie. . .takes its cue from a forthcoming comic book that producer Lionel Wigram wrote as a selling tool for a new take on the classic character. The concept sees Holmes as more adventurous and less stuffy than previous screen incarnations and mines more obscure character traits.

McAdams plays Holmes's enigmatic love interest, Irene Adler, a character who appeared in Doyle's 1891 A Scandal in Bohemia. While the character only appeared in that one story, McAdams' personage would return for any possible sequel.

I cannot wait to watch RDJ and Rachel McAdams, two darlings of the film world right now, play off one another. It's such a genius pairing.
