Producer Joel Silver suggests Sherlock Holmes 3 could shoot this year, teases more sequels

Last month, Robert Downey Jr. suggested that a reunion with director Guy Ritchie and co-star Jude Law could be on the cards later this year for a third Sherlock Holmes movie, with Warner Bros. subsequently announcing that James Coyne (Vikingdom, Puncture Wounds) is penning the script. Now producer Joel Silver has reaffirmed to Collider that cameras could begin rolling in the fall as well as teasing the possibility of further extending the franchise beyond a third movie.

“It looks like it could happen this fall,” states Silver. “Downey said he wants to do it. He’s gotta launch into [Avengers: Infinity War], right after the New Year, so we’re trying to get it done. We have a script that we like. Jude Law is available and Downey is available, and we’re hoping we can get it done. If it works, great. If not, we’ll do it another time. But, it

James Coyne To Pen "Sherlock Holmes 3"

James Coyne ("Puncture Wounds," "Vikingdom") has reportedly been brought on as writer on the script for the third film in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" action-adventure series.

At last report "Iron Man 3" screenwriter Drew Pearce was hired to work on a screenplay, whether Coyne is just polishing or starting over is unclear at this time.

Both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are expected to reprise their roles of Holmes and Watson. Downey suggested last week that filming could begin later this year, but there's no confirmation of that at this time.

‘Skin Trade’ VOD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, Michael Jai White | Written by | Directed by

Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.

The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Cung Le (an underrated action star

The Bottom Shelf: Remo, Almost Human, Branded To Kill and more

Nick wades into another stack of DVD releases, including 80s action epic Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous, and lots more besides...

"Whatever happened to Fred Ward?" is a line surely on the tip of most people’s tongues. Apparently, the star of Tremors and The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult has mostly been doing TV work over the last few years, though you’ll almost certainly remember him as the charismatic star of 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. No? Well, shame on you, because Remo, making a welcome Blu-Ray debut, leads this month’s action-packed, erm, action special.

If you weren’t one of the lucky few that grew up with the preposterous movie otherwise known as Remo: Unarmed And Dangerous punctuating their childhood, we’ll fill you in. Riding on the success of the Rambo films (essentially, the only tenuous link being the vaguely similar name), Bond director

‘A Certain Justice’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Cung Le, Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones, Gianni Capaldi, Briana Evigan, James C. Burns, Robert Lasardo, Sean O’Bryan | Written by James Coyne | Directed by Giorgio Serafini, James Coyne

A Certain Justice, aka Puncture Wounds, is the latest film from the foursome of Giorgio Serafini, Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones and Gianni Capaldi, who previously worked together on Hard Rush (aka Ambushed) and Blood of Redemption. This time round the group is joined by Ufc Fighter-turned action star Cung Le (from the awesome Dragon Eyes) and one of my favourite female stars working in Hollywood today, Briana Evigan.

The film tells the story of soldier John Nguyen, who returns home from a traumatic tour of duty in Iraq struggling with Ptsd. What little peace he had managed to build around him is shattered one fateful day when he rescues a local call girl from a group of violent pimps, killing one and severely injuring the other.

Don't Pick At These "Puncture Wounds"

Even if you were to search the whole of American film, you might not find a use of voice-over less successful than appears in Puncture Wounds. Both in text (in James Coyne’s screenplay) and in performance (by lead Cung Le), the voice-over so voids all other qualities that to discuss anything else would be akin to discussing anything at a sweet 16 party other than the ox carcass rotting on the front lawn. You can try all you want, but it just doesn’t take.

Special Features - The must-see straight-to-video action films of 2014

Tom Jolliffe on the must-see straight-to-video action films of 2014...

If you’re a little fed up of the never ending stream of remakes, kid friendly PG13 (12A or 15 here) CGI heavy theatrics and Marvel/DC action films that fill up the multiplexes, or you’re no stranger to the unrepentant, simple delights of a bit of straight to video (or Netflix) action, then here is a list of the best to look out for this year.

As big screen action caters more and more for younger audiences, straight to video still largely offers a bit more adult entertainment. What it might lack in big budget thrills it makes up for with F-bombs and gallons of blood (if that’s your thing). As for myself, alongside a steady upbringing of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone and Bruce Willis in the late 80’s and 90’s, I’ve also had more than my share

Interview: A conversation with Gianni Capaldi, star of Hard Rush

Tom Jolliffe chats with actor Gianni Capaldi about his career, working with Dolph Lundgren and Vinnie Jones, and his upcoming work in Hard Rush, Blood of Redemption and Wicked Within...

Gianni Capaldi was born in Motherwell, Scotland, to Italian parents. In his younger days he played football at youth level for Motherwell Fc. Though his footballing career didn’t progress beyond this point he switched his focus onto the hospitality business. Business orientated and strong willed, Capaldi managed a string of family owned businesses in Scotland before eventually finding himself working in Los Angeles. He managed a few well known Hollywood nightclubs and it would be here he would make the connections and attain the desire to switch focus again and become an actor.

Capaldi’s debut came in 2005 in the Poker mockumentary, All In. Since that time, as actor and also producer he has found himself sharing the screen

‘Hard Rush’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Gianni Capaldi, Carly Pope, William McNamara | Written by Agustin | Directed by Giorgio Serafini

At the rate Dolph Lundgren is pumping out direct to market action movies, you get the feeling that a quality script is not his highest priority – after all many of his recent solo efforts have been severely lacking in both story and action, with only Stash House coming anywhere close to being a top-notch action flick. Thankfully Lundgren’s ratio of good to bad movies seems to be in his favour this time out and Hard Rush hits plenty of action-movie targets, even if it does succumb to a lot of genre cliches and stereotypes.

Lundgren stars as DEA Agent Maxwell who is closing in on an international cocaine smuggling operation run out of L.A. by criminal mastermind Vincent Camastra (Jones). When Maxwell sends his lover and fellow DEA agent,
