BBC produced popular TV series Sherlock creator Steven Moffat has revealed that they are exploring the options of making a movie on the new age detective duo very soon according to Contactmusic.
Moffat’s Sherlock is a modern age adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s series and stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Sherlock Holmes with Hobbit star Martin Freeman playing the character of John Watson. Despite the season 3 ending up as somewhat of a disappointment as compared to the previous ones, Moffat remains upbeat about the viability of a movie starring the two if it is made.
“We don’t rule anything out,” the 52-year-old co-creator of Sherlock said.
“There is something quite special about the fact that it is on television, starring those two (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman),” he said.
“That wasn’t the case in the beginning. Mark and I sometimes imagine what would happen if we had written it now and were saying, ‘We’d like Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman for the parts!'” he added.
