    "Young Sherlock Holmes" Being Remade

    By Garth Franklin Wednesday November 21st 2012 11:07PM
    "The Lion King 1 1/2" writer Evan Spiliotopoulos is in talks to pen the script for a remake of "Young Sherlock Holmes" at Paramount Pictures.
    The story follows Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as they meet at a British boarding school as teenagers and stumble upon a series of murders.
    Chris Columbus, who penned the original Barry Levinson-directed 1985 film, is producing.

    I wonder who would win in a versus fight between Young Sherlock Holmes and Young Indiana Jones.

    The original Young Sherlocks Holmes movie which Chris Columbus wrote was ironically very similar to the Harry Potter movies which Columbus went onto direct.

    Some trivia facts.

    The Fonz (Henry Winkler) produced Young Sherlock Holmes.

    The kid who played Watson is the son of Brian Cox (X-Men 2/Bourne Trilogy/The Ring/RED)

    Young Sherlock Holmes was the first movie to use computer animated effects which was done by John Lasseter head of Pixar.

    What the hell...

    I love the original (it's actually one of my favorite Holmes movies, if not my favorite) but this is a terrible idea.

    I like the original (was actually planning on rewatching it very soon because I'm watching a bunch of Holmes movies right now).....but I see no reason to remake it.

    Yeah. I wish they'd just make a theatrical version of the BBC Sherlock TV series with Cumberbatch and Freeman. I like the RDJ and Law movies too... but Cumberbatch just takes it to a whole other level and it'd be awesome to see what he could do in a big budget, modern Holmes adaptation.

    It's about Sherlock Holmes.

    When he's young.
