Comedians Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen will star in a forthcoming film about fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.
Borat funnyman Cohen will play the pipe smoking sleuth, with Ferrell as his partner Watson in the as yet untitled film.
"Just the idea of Sacha and Will as Sherlock Holmes and Watson makes us laugh," Matt Tolmach, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, told Variety.com.
"Sacha and Will are two of the funniest and most talented guys on the planet, and having them take on these two iconic characters is frankly hilarious," adds Tolmach.
