There are rumours that Brad Pitt is currently shooting a small role as bad guy, Moriarty, in the Guy Ritchie directed Sherlock Holmes adaptation we had all thought was in the can. Empire are quoting a tabloid source (thus, this aint gospel) as saying Warner Bros. wanted the character included, and Ritchie turned to his old mate Pitt to shoot it with. Downey Jr. is currently in London, so it may not seem as farfetched as I initially feared . Whatever the outcome, it sounds like it could be a set-up for a sequel maybe? Anyhow, Pitt is never less than entertaining; if further proof of this was needed check out Inglorious Basterds - hilarious performance.
