Frenetic director and Madonna's better half, Guy Ritchie, is working on a new take on Sherlock Holmes for Warner Bros.--but this won't be your grandpa's Sherlock! Working from a script based on an upcoming comic, the Snatch director's take will reportedly reinvent the characters, making Holmes "more adventuresome and take advantage of his skills as a boxer and swordsman." It's about time that pipe-smoking pansy dropped all that brilliant reasoning shit and started indiscriminately punching and stabbing some dudes. And would it kill Watson to drop some freestyle rapping over Holmes's violin?
