‘Sherlock Holmes’ Does Brooklyn

Yo, it’s elementary, my dear Watson!

Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams descended on the streets of Brooklyn Thursday to film scenes for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes flick, due to hit theaters on November 20.

Law, 36, who plays Dr. John Watson, and McAdams, 30, who plays Irene Adler, were both sporting minor cuts and scrapes, but that’s to be expected.  So far the flick’s production has been plagued by mishaps, ranging from a tanker explosion to Downey’s crotch being set on fire.

Hopefully the change of shooting venue from England to Brooklyn will bring better luck to the flick.

And while he has his super-sleuths in New York, perhaps Ritchie can have them snoop into the case of a certain Yankees slugger who’s been acting awfully suspicious lately.
