Tokyo, Feb 15: Jude Law is in Tokyo to promote the action packed sequel to 2009's “Sherlock Holmes” which reunites the eccentric, disguise-loving sleuth and his long-suffering partner, Dr. Watson.
This time round, Law says he is more confident about working with director Guy Ritchie. One scene Law recalls as being the most intense was where the two characters dash through a forest in escape.
“I think there was much more confidence in his hands. I felt like I was really willing to follow his lead and do what he wanted” Law said.
On playing opposite Robert Downey Jr., Law said he was initially worried whether they could “catch the lightning”, as he called the spirit of working with the actor. But Law said everything fell into place once they were on set.
“To pick up where we left off and make a new film together was very easy. It was full of stuff we wanted to try out in the first and didn't have time or confidence.”
Camaraderie on screen aside, Law was caught off-guard when asked for his thoughts on arrival of Downey's new baby with wife Susan.
Speaking to the reporter who broke the news, Law said “I didn't know. He called you and he didn't call me? I'm offended. Oh well.”
“Well that's the end of the third, then” he joked.
