Warner Bros. Pictures is teaming with producer Lionel Wigram to adapt his upcoming comicbook, Sherlock Holmes for the bigscreen.

Neil Marshall will direct the Michael Johnson screenplay. The exact storyline is being kept under wraps, but creative execs at Warners say they are looking for the "Sherlock" team to reinvent the sleuth and his loyal No. 2 Dr. Watson in much the same edgy way that Christopher Nolan has reimagined Batman for Warners, notes Variety.

No production scheule has been set for Sherlock Holmes.
