In January 2012, Guy Ritchie confirmed he was returning to direct a third instalment of the series, and hoped to base the film's production in Los Angeles.[1] By December, a year after the previous film, producer Dan Lin referred to a third film as a "high priority", with Drew Pearce set to write the screenplay. Lin also stated that production had to wait for star Robert Downey Jr. to finish Iron Man 3 before production could commence.[2] Jude Law stated in Novemeber 2013 that despite meeting to discuss the film with Ritchie and Downey earlier in the year, it had yet to receive a greenlight from Warner Bros.[3]

In April 2016, Downey announced he was hoping to film the sequel later in the year, with James Coyne announced to be rewriting the screenplay.[4][5] Filming was eyed to begin that autumn, with producer Joel Silver claiming this could be one of several new sequels.[6] In October, a writer's room consisting of Kieran Fitzgerald, Justin Malen, Nicole Perlman and Gary Whitta was assembled to write the film's screenplay.[7] The film missed it's autumn 2016 filming start, and by August 2017, Geneva Robertson-Dworet was working on the script.[8]

In May 2018, Narcos creator Chris Brancato was hired as the new screenwriter for the film, with Ritchie's involvement uncertain as no director was set to direct.[9][10] Law described a theme of the film as being how Holmes and Watson having not seen one another in some time.[11]

In March 2019, the film was reported to be set for a January 2020 filming start, and would be set in turn of the century San Francisco.[12] In July, Dexter Fletcher was announced as in negotiations to serve as director, with Ritchie officially not returning in that capacity.[13]


The film was issued a $20 million tax credit to film in California.[14]
