Guy Ritchie - Sherlock Holmes 3 must excite Downey

Robert Downey Jr. will only make 'Sherlock Holmes 3' if it ''excites'' him.

The proposed third film in Guy Ritchie's mystery movie franchise won't go ahead unless its lead star is impressed by the script, according to screenwriter Drew Pearce, who has been hired to pen the film and recently co-wrote 'Iron Man 3', which also stars Downey.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'Iron Man 3' in London's Leicester Square on Thursday (18.04.13), he explained: ''At the moment with 'Sherlock', we've been so busy working on this that what we really need to do is sit down and work out - a bit like 'Iron Man' - if there's a story that we can put together that excites Robert enough to spend two years of his life making it.

''The amazing thing about where he is in his life now and in his career, he's only going to do it if he really wants to do it. That's the challenge we had going into 'Iron Man 3' and I think we succeeded, so we'll see what happens with 'Sherlock'.''

Guy Pearce's take on 'Sherlock Holmes' stars Downey as the eccentric detective and Jude Law as his long-suffering sidekick, Dr. John Watson.

Both 2009's 'Sherlock Holmes' and 2011's 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' drew critical acclaim and have grossed over $1 billion combined.
