Sherlock's girl Rachel McAdams

'The Notebook' actress Rachel McAdams is to play the love interest in 'Sherlock Holmes'.

Rachel McAdams is to star in 'Sherlock Holmes'.

The 'Mean Girls' actress is set to play Irene Adler, the love interest of the fictional titular detective of the film's name, who will be portrayed by 'Iron Man' star Robert Downey Jr.

'Alfie' actor Jude Law is also appearing in the Guy Ritchie movie as Holmes' sidekick Doctor Watson.

It is also being reported plans for a sequel to the film - which is set to start shooting next month - are already underway.

Rachel's character appears in just one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories about the detective, 'A Scandal in Bohemia'. There is no physical contact between the pair in the story, but it states that Holmes is impressed by her intelligence.

Earlier this month, Sienna Miller was reported to be the favourite for the role.

However, the blonde actress changed her mind after discovering she would have to work with her ex-fiance Jude.

"However, the blonde actress changed her mind after discovering she would have to work with her ex-fiance Jude."

This is bull...she was never attached...Guy Ritchie would not have sought out Jude if Sienna were already attached...and even if he had, Jude wouldn't have joined. This girl would bring the worst possible attention, either stirring up drama with Jude (case in point, the comment in quotes above) , messing with RDJ, or just bringing all kinds of negative attention to the movie. I hate when baseless rumors are spread like truth from website to website.
