Kelly Reilly returns and reprises her role in 'Sherlock Holmes 2'

Finally, there's news and a confirmation whether or not Kelly Reilly and co-star Rachel McAdams are returning for the for Untitled Sherlock Holmes Sequel, which is currently still filming and is set for a December 16, 2011 theatrical release.

For a long time, there seems to be no actual news on the returning cast for the sequel from the first Sherlock Holmes film, which was a big blockbuster hit (with a $290+ million domestic gross, a $90 million budget, and over $524+ million worldwide gross, according to Box Officce Mojo) when it was released December 2009, other than the two male leads Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law with new cast members: Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Stephen Fry, and Jared Harris. See on set pics of Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law return for Sherlock Holmes sequel. Though Kelly's name has been mentioned a lot and on the IMDB cast list for the sequel more so than McAdams since it was announced they were doing a sequel and which cast will be returning, but McAdams' return has been in question for a while, even the actress herself wasn't sure if she was returning or not.



With Rachel McAdams Spotted on the Set of Sherlock Holmes 2
recently though, looks like she is and Warner Bros. had to quickly confirmed her return as set photos of her and director Guy Ritchie leaked online. Now, it's official and confirmed that she's returning along with Kelly. They will be reprising their roles as Mary Morstan (Reilly) and Irene Idler (McAdams), in what is reported to be a cameo role.

Yay, for both Kelly and Rachel returning to SH2! So, glad they are returning as I love this two very talented actresses and I'm looking forward to seeing this film more now with them and with anticipation. Not too mentioned, I loved and enjoyed the first one. Let's hope Kelly has more screen time in this sequel than in the first and that this sequel is as fun and enjoyable to watch as the first one. I haven't seen any set photos or production stills with KR on it yet, but I'll be sure to post here as soon as they are released.
