Robert Downey Jr. isn't the only one clearing his schedule to work on Sherlock Holmes 2. Guy Ritchie also announced he will return to direct the sequel.
Ritchie set aside his current project Lobo, a DC Comic adaptation, to continue work on the successful Holmes' franchise.
And why not? Holmes has been Ritchie's biggest success in theaters, bringing in more than $385 million worldwide. That's way more than all of the director's previous films made combined.
