It's difficult to c&p from there but I managed it in the end. Sounds interesting.

Rocketman” filmmaker Dexter Fletcher has come on board to direct the latest “Sherlock Holmes” film, with Robert Downey Jr. returning to star.

Fletcher is taking over the franchise from Guy Ritchie, who helmed the previous two films: 2009’s “Sherlock Holmes” and its follow-up 2011’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.” Both were highly successful, with the first grossing $524 million globally and the second bringing in $545.4 million worldwide.

Sources say Warner Bros. had always planned on making a third film. However, Downey’s busy schedule as Iron Man prevented any new filming for the series. The forthcoming entry of the mystery series is expected to hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2021.

Jude Law is also expected to return as Professor Watson. Chris Brancato is penning the script, while Susan Downey, Joel Silver, Dan Lin and Lionel Wigram are producing. The studio had originally announced that the film would open on Christmas Day of 2020 but pushed back the date last March.

Have I mentioned the Flamephone before?

This freaky 1923 gramophone used your coal-gas supply to modulate the sounds and provide a rhythmic light-show!

No one seems to have seen one but interest is sparked by advertising and now patent details.

This German page is the most complete account so far. Google will translate it, approximately and the ads themselves are in English, as this was an eccentric Brit. product.

Can't wait for someone to take this on as a practical project! :hide: :domo: :cfire:
Not quite the same but flames dancing to sound, we have one of these at work

Does anyone give a shit about a third film of that iteration of Holmes at this point? The last one was in 2011, Downey is big but only as Stark.
