"The film will borrow plot elements from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s short story, “The Final Problem,” first published in 1893. The tale, which Doyle himself ranked fourth on his own list of favorite Holmes stories, starts off in a crakerjack fashion with Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) surviving three murder attempts from the nefarious Moriarty. Holmes teams with Watson (Jude Law) to finally capture Moriarty who heads up a criminal organization and the two take off across Europe to track him down. Where the film will likely deviate from Doyle’s tale is a larger role for Mycroft (Stephen Fry), Holmes’ brother who only briefly appears in the story, and the inclusion of the gypsy Sim played by Noomi Rapace."
