Alex Harakis, apparently a newcomer screenwriter, is in charge of putting together the script, but given Ritchie's own screenwriting background he may have a hand in the script as well. Feel free to begin your casting speculation now-- though I bet the studio would love to have Robert Downey Jr. on board...

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Gets A Frenetic Second Trailer Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Gets A Frenetic Second Trailer
We all know that Sherlock Holmes movies, as envisioned by Guy Ritchie, will contain insane action and occasional use of slo-mo and a lot of Victorian settings blown to smithereens.
