Sher­lock Gnomes

The 2011 ani­mated film Gnomeo & Juliet looks like it has a sequel about to head into pro­duc­tion, ten­ta­tively titled, Sher­lock Gnomes. The gar­den gnomes orig­i­nally retold the story of “Romeo and Juliet,” but this time look like they will be send­ing up the clas­sic tales of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Where the first film fea­tured clas­sic Elton John songs in it’s sound­track, the new film promises to have new songs, allow­ing Elton John to be eli­gi­ble for a pos­si­ble Oscar nomination.

Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil, the film’s orig­i­nal writ­ers, have returned to pen the sequel. John Steven­son, the direc­tor of “Kung Fu Panda,” has signed on to direct the film.

The char­ac­ters from the first movie return, and enlist the help of a famous gnome-detective in solv­ing the sin­is­ter dis­ap­pear­ance of gnomes from the sub­ur­ban gar­dens of Eng­land. It is not yet known if any of the orig­i­nal cast will return to voice char­ac­ters in Sher­lock Gnomes.

Elton John and David Fur­nish are pro­duc­ing the sequel, with Elton’s com­pany Rocket Pic­tures pro­duc­ing. No release date has yet been set.

  1. I have been surf­ing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I never found any inter­est­ing arti­cle like yours. It is lovely worth suf­fi­cient for me. In my view, if all web­site own­ers and blog­gers made just right con­tent mate­r­ial as you prob­a­bly did, the web will prob­a­bly be much more use­ful than ever before.
