Watson, We Need You
The Hollywood Reporter says that the world’s greatest consulting detective is getting yet another resurrection. This time with a twist.
CBS’ Sherlock Holmes pilot, ELEMENTARY, will feature Sherlock Holmes’ famed sidekick, Watson, as played by Lucy Liu.
Described as a modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes, with the detective now living in New York City, DEXTER killer Jonny Lee Miller has been tapped to star in the project, says The Reporter.
Holmes remains a Brit, although Watson will be an American (a surgeon, still) and the stories will be set in New York.
Question: Is this a brilliant new twist that will breath life into a too-well-mined story? Or will Mr. Miller and Ms. Liu be updating their resumes by Thanksgiving. Thoughts?
