The other question is simple: do we want a Sherlock movie? What would a big-screen adaptation add to this iteration of Doyle’s stories? Sherlock could curse a bit more, and maybe they could delve into even more gruesome crimes, but the BBC show has already established itself as a fairly gritty retelling, giving us graphic suicides, drug dens, and desperately sad elderly-lady-collateral-damage, all in movie-length adventures. What do you think—do you want to see Cumberbatch and Freeman reprise their roles in a big screen outing?
