After Robert Downey Jr made a comment on David Letterman's show that the famous detective Sherlock Holmes might be shtupping his sidekick, Dr. Watson, the future of the movie franchise might be in jeopardy. Downey is the star of the current Holmes flick.
Andrea Plunket, who holds the US copyright to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's literary creation, is unhappy with comments made by Downey that Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson could be lovers.
And Plunkett says if Ritchie and the screenwriters want to take the character - who is played by Downey in the current movie - in that direction she will not allow a follow-up film.
She said: "I hope this is just an example of Mr. Downey's black sense of humour. It would be drastic, but I would withdraw permission for more films to be made if they feel that is a theme they wish to bring out in the future.
"I am not hostile to homosexuals, but I am to anyone who is not true to the spirit of the books."
"Black sense of humor?" Fuck her. Fuck her very much. Oh, wait... Was that hostile?
