John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell are a fantastic comedy duo, and the two are teaming up for a comedic take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Ferrell as Sherlock Holmes and Reilly as Dr. Watson.

Check them out:

The film is called Holmes and Watson and is being directed by Etan Cohen, who had previously worked with Ferrell on Get Hard. Besides Reilly and Ferrell, the movie also has a star-studded cast which includes Ralph Fiennes as Moriarty, Kelly Macdonald as Mrs. Hudson, and Hugh Laurie as Mycroft Holmes. The cast also includes Rebecca Hall who is playing someone named Dr. Grace Hart.

I have to say, I’m not really expecting that much from this film. I mean, Get Hard was fun, but it was no way as good as Step Brothers. I guess I’m just waiting for a trailer to try and get me sold on this film. I know that Reilly and Ferrell have fantastic chemistry, and I can only imagine what they could bring to an iconic duo like Holmes and Watson.

Originally set for a release this month, you can catch Holmes and Watson in theaters Dec. 21.
