Guy Ritchie to Direct Young Sherlock Holmes Series Starring Hero Fiennes Tiffin

After recently working together in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare movie, director Guy Ritchie will be reuniting with Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After movies, The Woman King) on a Young Sherlock Holmes series.

According to Variety, Prime Video has officially granted a straight-to-series order to the upcoming adaptation of Andy Lane’s Young Sherlock Holmes novels. Tiffin is attached to play the titular role, which serves as his first major TV project as the lead. As for Ritchie, he has signed on to direct and executive produce the show, after over a decade since directing Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows sequel.

“In Young Sherlock, we’re going to see an exhilarating new version of the detective everyone thinks they know in a way they’ve never imagined before,” Ritchie said in a statement. “We’re going to crack open this enigmatic character, find out what makes him tick, and learn how he becomes the genius we all love.”

What to expect from the Young Sherlock Holmes series?

Young Sherlock Holmes will be written and executive produced by showrunner Matthew Parkhill. The series is also executive produced by Lane, Simon Kelton, Ivan Atkinson, Simon Maxwell, Dhana Gilbert, Colin Wilson, Marc Resteghini and Harriet Creelman. Prior to Young Sherlock, Ritchie recently served as the creator, director, and writer on Netflix’s The Gentlemen series which hasn’t been renewed yet.

“The series is an action-packed origin story of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved detective in an explosive re-imagining of this iconic character,” reads the logline. “At age 19, Sherlock Holmes is disgraced, raw, unfiltered, and unformed, when he finds himself caught up in a murder mystery at Oxford University which threatens his freedom. Diving into his first-ever case with a wild lack of discipline, Sherlock manages to unravel a globe-trotting conspiracy that will change his life forever.”
