- GNOMEO & JULIET: SHERLOCK GNOMES
Elton John's Rocket Pictures has set-up Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes, a sequel to the 3D Disney animated film that grossed almost $200 million worldwide.
Deadline reports that John is currently composing music for the pic. Although the studio is now on the lookout for a new director, Gnomeo & Juliet helmer Kelly Asbury will serve as a creative consultant.
Here's the synopsis: "When gnomes start disappearing from the suburban gardens of England, Gnomeo, Juliet and friends enlist the help of Sherlock Gnomes, 'the greatest ornamental detective,' to track the culprit. Unfortunately, Sherlock is neither as brilliant nor as insightful as his human counterpart, and as the crimes against gnomanity continue, the threat to their world becomes bigger than they ever imagined."
Plans are to begin production on the feature in May.
