Last year's "Gnomeo & Juliet," which had a long and tortuous production history, even for the admittedly even-more-arduous standards of animation, turned out to be a surprise box office hit, taking in almost $100 million at the domestic box office (with another $95 million overseas). William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," very loosely translated (i.e. decidedly in lacking in suicide) to the world of British garden gnomes was spritely and fun, and benefited from the songs and input of producer Elton John. Well, a sequel is now underway, with a talented director and an amazing title. That's right folks, look out for… "Sherlock Gnomes." Elementary!
