Tom Brevoort Talks "Civil War II," the New Marvel NOW! and DC's "Rebirth"
You can’t keep a classic character down. Much like Dracula and Beauty and the Beast, there’s a lot of heat around Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Of course, there’s the pair of films starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as well as the BBC series Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, but CBS has its own version called Elementary set in present-day New York City.
Deadline reports the network has signed former Eli Stone star Jonny Lee Miller to play Holmes in the pilot, written by Robert Doherty and directed by Michael Cuesta (Dexter, Homeland).
