'Prince of Persia' and 'Sherlock Holmes' will be working together soon
The proverbial 'little birdie' reported today that 'Prince of Persia' and 'Sherlock Holmes' will be working together in an upcoming project.

Apparently, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are supposed to star in a yet to be made feature film tentatively titled, 'Rio', to be financed by Studiocanal. Studiocanal is also slated to present this project to prospective buyers in the Cannes Film Festival. The film already has a formidable line of producers including both leads Gyllenhall and Cumberbatch via their respective production houses, Nine Stories Productions and Sunny March.

The film is to be directed by 'A Bigger Splash' director Luca Guardagnino and tells the story of a reporter (Gyllenhaal) and his wealthy friend (Cumberbatch) where the former travels to Brazil to help the latter fake his death. The script has been written by Steven Knight who' also the creator of 'Peaky Blinders'. 

While news of what can have massive fanaticism around it was first disclosed by Hollywood Reporter, "Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to star in Studiocanal's "Rio," reported Variety. Aside of this anticipated project, Gyllenhaal will be next seen in 'Wildlife', Paulo Dano's directorial debut whereas Cumberbatch next plays Thomas Edison in The Weinstein Company's 'The Current War'. 

Cumberbatch was an instant hit with viewers all across the globe ever since the BBC crime drama 'Sherlock' hit television screens while Gyllenhaal had long enjoyed roaring popularity since his quaint romcom days. A heartbreaking combination on screen, a manic explosion from the combined fans of these Hollywood heartthrobs can be readily predicted. 

Another sweet surprise for fans, in news for a while is that of Cumberbatch's return as Dr Strange in the next Marvel Avengers movie, 'Infinity War'. He is also slated to lend his voice to the Grinch for Dr Seuss's Christmas Tale. On the other hand, Gyllenhaal's stellar performance was overwhelmingly applauded for the Broadway revival of 'Sunday in the park with George' at New York's Hudson Theatre.
