Guy Ritchie has reportedly signed up to direct a third Sherlock Holmes film, and wants to move the action to Hollywood.

The Sun reports that the British director is keen to move production to Los Angeles, and to set the film there too.

The news will no doubt be welcomed by the film's star Robert Downey Jr, who plays Holmes.

A source said: "Guy has loved making the movies and he gets on really well with all the cast. But Robert's had to spend large parts of the year in the UK filming so will probably welcome a move back home."

The franchise also stars Jude Law as Holmes' side-kick Watson.
