Popular British actor Stephen Fry will star in the sequel to Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes. As Fry himself said in an interview with BBC's 5 Live radio station, he will play the role of Holmes' brother Mycroft.
As you know, Mycroft Holmes knew the method of deduction almost better than his younger brother, but he never used his abilities for investigation of crimes, preferring public service. Holmes consulted him on some particularly perplexing cases.
Filming for the sequel is due to begin in autumn 2010. Premiere of Sherlock Holmes 2 will be held in December 2011.
It is assumed that the famous detective will have to deal with his nemesis - Professor Moriarty.
