Sherlock Holmes in Liverpool - Elementary Lad!

My neck of the woods and I missed them! Oh well the Echo got some photos and had this to say.

Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law posed for the cameras during a night out on the tiles in Liverpool.

The movie A-listers dined out with friends and cast members at top city restaurant 60 Hope Street.

The award-winning actors were in town to film Guy Ritchie’s adaption of Sherlock Holmes.

The pair chose a window seat in the Hope Street restaurant and could be seen chatting from the street.

They then posed for photographs, with Cold Mountain and Talented Mr Ripley star Law, sporting a moustache for his role as Dr John Watson, telling the ECHO he was enjoying his time in Liverpool.

They signed autographs for fans before heading off for their hotels at 10.15pm.

Earlier yesterday the pair were hard at work filming the supersleuth blockbuster at the city’s disused docks.

Director Ritchie, 40, who was today getting divorced from Madonna, took his two sons to work.

Eight-year-old Rocco joined his dad on location at Liverpool’s Clarence Dock yesterday.

His younger son David, three, who Ritchie and Madonna adopted, joined them on set later.

Ritchie chatted to the boys and texted on his phone while he took a break from directing.

The family was spotted going in to Liverpool’s swanky Malmaison hotel on Wednesday, while Downey Jnr was seen checking into the Radisson, in Old Hall Street, and Law was seen working out in the hotel’s Ark gym.

Iron Man actor Downey Jr, 43, who plays the part of Holmes, arrived on set shortly after 9.30am in a sport utility vehicle.

London-born Law, who plays Watson and had a minor role in the Casebook of Sherlock Holmes TV series, followed along Waterloo Road minutes later in an Audi with blacked-out windows.

He was taken to a Winnebago trailer for make-up and costumes.

The area was full of security, while crew and a cast of actors and extras wearing bowler hats and smoking jackets were on set.

Filming in Liverpool began on Wednesday and was expected to continue for four days.

Some shots were delayed during the first day as Liverpool was lashed with heavy winds and rain.

Jude, 43, had a two-piece tweed suit underneath his heavy overcoat and wore a beanie hat between takes.

Onlookers said Law stood shivering in the cold weather.

The movie is due to be released next year and will show Holmes using physical prowess and intellect to solve mysteries.

The film also stars Wedding Crashers actress Rachel McAdams in the female lead and Mark Strong, from RocknRolla, as the villain.
