Sherlock Holmes will be going on as schedule. Jude Law dropped the cat with news that Guy Ritchie is planning to shooting the film for a December 16 2011 release.

The script will be written by the guys behind the Paper Man. So the shooting will be delayed a little bit but I guess they will speed up in the post production front.

Jude Law will also be working on the ensemble piece of Steven Soderbergh. The film has a huge star cast includeing Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard and will have the same schedule. Since contagion is an ensemble piece it will be easier for Steven to relax the scheduling for the film. So his part could be shot afterwards.

So Jude Law really has his hands full this year. He will also be playing the father of Hugo Cabaret in the Martin Scorsese film which will be done up in 3D. So the schedule is looking rather tight for the guy now.
