Meet the directors of Sherlock Series 3
Following yesterday’s news piece by Deadline, we’ve independently verified with Sherlock producer Sue Vertue that Jeremy Lovering is attached to the third series, and will be behind the camera when the first episode begins filming on Monday March 18 2013. Jeremy and Colm McCarthy are at present the only confirmed directors on Sherlock Series three. The third has yet to be announced.
Read on below the break for profiles of both new members of the Sherlock production team.
So we have the title of the first episode of Series 3 of Sherlock...
…and now we wait.
Jeremey Lovering to direct an episode of Series 3 of Sherlock
Jeremy Lovering (“In Fear”)
If you went to Sundance looking for the next Christopher Nolan or Rupert Wyatt (who both had films premiere at the festival early in their careers), you’d be hard pressed to find a better candidate than Jeremy Lovering, whose feature film debut “In Fear” has been scaring the living shit out of people in the Midnight strand of the festival. Backed by Big Talk Productions (“Shaun Of The Dead,” “Attack The Block,” “Sightseers”), it’s a fairly simple set-up of a young teenage couple who get lost in the Irish countryside, and are tormented by a mysterious presence. But the reviews suggest that Lovering wrings the maximum tension out of it, not least with a semi-improvised approach that meant hiding his script from his cast — Alice Englert (“Ginger And Rosa”) and Iain De Caestecker (“S.H.I.E.L.D”) — and freaking them out for real. It’s a pretty fresh approach to the genre, and one that suggests that Lovering — a TV veteran who helmed episodes of “MI-5” as well as one-offs “Miss Austen Regrets” with Olivia Williams and “Money” with Nick Frost — has plenty of tricks up his sleeve. He’s about to direct one of the episodes of the new series of “Sherlock” with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, which can only raise his profile higher, and he’s got a further two films in development at Big Talk, “Child Soldier” and “Wicked Smart.” Are we looking at the next Edgar Wright/Joe Cornish/Ben Wheatley?
Actual S3 news!
What’s this I see? Actual Sherlock season 3 news??
Apparently Jeremy Lovering, director of (among other things) Spooks/MI5, Miss Austen Regrets, Lonely Planet and the thriller In Fear, which just debuted at the Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, is directing one of the season three episodes.
IndieWire has called him “the next Christopher Nolan” and he described his directing style in an interview with Los Angeles Times as “Sam Raimi meets Roman Polanski” mixed with Lars von Trier.
For followers of Mark Gatiss, you may remember that he’s raved about In Fear on his Twitter, which is a big sign IMO that these initial reports are probably true.
