Contrary to the circulating rumor, the ‘Inglourious Basterds’ leading man won’t be seen portraying Sherlock Holmes’ archfoe, Moriarty, in the Guy Ritchie-directed action drama.

There will be no Brad Pitt in “Sherlock Holmes”. Warner Bros. Pictures has squashed the recent flying rumor suggesting that the star of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” has been recruited to play Holmes’ arch nemesis, Moriarty, in Guy Ritchie’s new take on the legendary detective and his crime-solving story.

“The report in today’s London Mirror is completely inaccurate. Brad Pitt is not joining the cast of Sherlock Holmes and we’re extremely pleased with the production of the film,” a studio-sanctioned statement, released Monday, August 17, read. “As planned, it will be released on Christmas Day, 2009.”
