According to a report over at TheWrap, screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos (‘Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure,’ ‘The Lion King 1½’) has entered into talks with Paramount Pictures to provide the script for a remake of 1985’s ‘Young Sherlock Holmes.’
Directed by Barry Levinson, the original follows Sherlock Holmes (Nicolas Rowe) and John Watson (Alan Cox) as they meet as teenagers at a British boarding school and stumble upon a series of mysterious murders. The film was executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall.
