August 17, 2009 - Sherlock Holmes / Brad Pitt as late-comer Moriarty?

Scooped by KingVoyeur on Monday, August 17, 2009

A rumor that originated from the Daily Mirror tabloid started speculation that Brad Pitt was arriving in London to film reshoots for the film. The story went that Pitt would be playing Holmes archvillain Professor James Moriarty in new scenes designed to beef up the picture. The Mirror even had quotes from an alleged source stating, "Brad is expected to be filming all over London. Cliveden House has been earmarked as a location for Moriarty's home... It's going to be a full-on couple of days, but now the release date has been pushed back they might just do it in time."

But the story's not true. Not only is Pitt busy right now doing press for Inglourious Basterds but Warner Bros. has officially gone on the record saying it's a false story. "The report in today's London Mirror is completely inaccurate," states the WB statement. "Brad Pitt is not joining the cast of Sherlock Holmes and we're extremely pleased with the production of the film. As planned, it will be released on Christmas Day, 2009. In order to complete the movie, we've scheduled a few days on set to shoot a couple of additional scenes, obtain pick-up shots, and perfect some of the visual effects elements, all of which is standard filmmaking practice."
