Young Sherlock Holmes To Play Grown-up Sleuth?

The young actor who played YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES 22 years ago is now set to play the literary sleuth all grown up. NICHOLAS ROWE is attached to a new Holmes franchise, based on the graphic novel created by one-time HARRY POTTER creative executive LIONEL WIGRAM. According to FilmStalker.co.uk, director NEIL MARSHALL wants Rowe to play the English sleuth in his upcoming 'restart' of the Holmes movies. The new version of the story, which will be more action-packed than previous films, has received the approval from Homes creator ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE's estate. RUSSELL CROWE has also been linked to the project, but it is not known in what capacity. If the new Internet reports are true, Rowe will become the latest in a long list of actors who have played Sherlock Holmes on the big and small screen. These include RUPERT EVERETT, BASIL RATHBONE, PETER CUSHING, CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER, ROBERT STEPHENS, JEREMY BRETT and MICHAEL CAINE.
