Jude Law has revealed that Sherlock Holmes 3 will be "better" than the previous films.

The 40-year-old is set to reprise his role as Dr John Watson in Guy Ritchie's third instalment of the detective franchise for Warner Bros, alongside Robert Downey Jr as the famed sleuth.

"I think Warners want it, and there's a lot of want from us as a team. We want it to be better than the other two. We want to make sure it's smarter and cleverer, but in the same realm," he told Empire.

Jude, who has already had a few meetings with film bosses, can't wait to get started.

"I hate celebrating anything I've done, but I'm so proud of those films. I think it was Joel Silver who said, 'Take it out of that dusty room and put it on the street'," he added.

The British actor, who next stars in crime drama Dom Hemingway and Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, admitted that the process to the third film hasn't been easy, especially with his co-stars' schedules.

"It's a slow process. We're all busy. So getting us together to try to nail that has taken a little bit longer than we had hoped," he said.

The first film was released in 2009, with the sequel out in 2011.

There is no release date set for Sherlock Holmes 3, which will see Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce on script duties.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
