Re: Sherlock Holmes - Action Hero

Good news for US fans of Sherlock Holmes. Jonny Lee Miller will play the sleuth in a pilot episode of proposed CBS show Elementary, to be set in contemporary New York. If the pilot is successful a series will be made in time for the autumn.

For fans of the BBC's Sherlock update a third series has been confirmed with Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson.

Re: Sherlock Holmes - Action Hero

A US version of Sherlock Holmes makes me think of 'Cruise of the Gods' in which Steve Coogan cameos as an actor who's made it big in the States playing a modern day Holmes complete with his wisecracking African American partner. "Elementary, my dear Bro.." Wish I could find a clip.

Lucy Liu is Dr Watson in the US version of 'Sherlock.' No bromance there then.
