Sherlock Holmes: The Sequel

Rumors are flying that Robert Downey Jr. has dropped out of filming "Cowboys & Aliens" in order to fast track a sequel to his "Sherlock Holmes". Happily, Cinema Romantico was able to interview the sequel's prospective screenwwriters (who, due to studio bylaws, cannot be named). The following is a transcript of our entire conversation:

CR: "Any plans to expand the Rachel McAdams character?"
Writer #1: "Who?"
CR: "Irene Adler. The character that was played by Rachel McAdams."
Writer #1: "Oh! Her! Right."
Writer #2: "We kept forgetting she was in the movie."
Writer #1: "We decided to eliminate her from the sequel. There were so many characters. Sherlock Holmes...Watson...whoever else. We just couldn't keep track."
CR: "You couldn't keep track?"
Writer #1: "We decided to give Sherlock Holmes a pet Saint Bernard-"
Writer #2: "A wacky pet Saint Bernard."
Writer #1: "Exactly. A wacky pet Saint Bernard instead."
CR: "We're done here."

Smart move with the dog. A lesser set of writers wouldn't have the patience to hold off on the adorable child sidekick until the 3rd film. These guys are clearly professionals.
