God, Warner Bros. really wants to kiss Guy Ritchie's new Sherlock Holmes. Variety is reporting that, despite it being three months before the film's release, WB is already hiring a new writing team to take on a sequel, and have their eyes on Brad Pitt to play Holmes' biggest adversary (besides opium):

The studio is poised to bring on Kieran and Michele Mulroney, the scribes who are penning its "Justice League: Mortal" tentpole, to pen a draft of the new tale. Brad Pitt has had discussions with producers to star as Holmes' nemesis Moriarty in the new pic, say people familiar with the project, though there is no deal in place for him to take the part.

Now all they need to do is find a part for Ewan McGregor and there can finally be one film with every celebrity I've felt threatened by because of how often a girlfriend would bring up how attractive they are.
