Guy Ritchie forced to re-shoot Sherlock

Guy Ritchie has been ordered to re-shoot his "unrealistic" movie 'Sherlock Holmes', after he became "distracted" by his divorce from Madonna

Guy Ritchie has been ordered to re-shoot his "unrealistic" 'Sherlock Holmes' movie.

The 40-year-old director was reportedly left fuming last night (17.02.09) after Warner Brothers chiefs told him several scenes didn't reach their expectations.

It has been claimed Ritchie was "distracted" by his impending divorce from Madonna, who he split from during shooting.

Ritchie has been forced to call back cast - including his close friend Jude Law who plays Dr. Watson, and Robert Downey Jr., who plays British detective Sherlock Holmes - to remake five weeks worth of footage.

A source said: "It's disastrous news, but Guy has promised to fix it."

Despite movie chiefs being unhappy with the project, Downey recently revealed he thoroughly enjoyed his onscreen "bromance" with Law.

The 'Iron Man' star relished the chance to explore the complicated homoerotic relationship between Holmes and his sidekick, saying: "I think the word bromance is so passe. We are two men who happen to be roommates who wrestle a lot and share a bed."

Law also claimed people will be in for a shock when they see the film, based on the books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

He said: "Holmes and Watson are both meaner, harder, more complicated. They both live in a London that is much seedier and much more dangerous."
