Sacha Baron Cohen is set to play Sherlock Holmes in the upcoming comedic film about the famous detective, with Will Ferrell starring as Dr. Watson, Holmes’ crime-solving partner.

“Just the idea of Sacha and Will as Sherlock Holmes and Watson makes us laugh,” said Col co-prexy Matt Tolmach. “Sacha and Will are two of the funniest and most talented guys on the planet, and having them take on these two iconic characters is frankly hilarious.”
