Sherlock Holmes and THE FINAL PROBLEM

The sequel to last year’s surprise hit movie, Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the master detective and Jude Law as his sidekick, Dr. Watson, arrives on Dec. 16th. The first movie was “inspired” by Arthur Conan Doyle’s character, but the second, called Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows features Holmes’s nemesis, draws from the story, The Final Problem.

Penguin will release an anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories in September that includes The Final Problem. A burst on the cover reads, “Inspiration for the Major Motion Picture.”
