Robert Downey Jr. Skips Cowboys for Holmes

Two franchises are enough for Robert Downey Jr., thank you very much. The actor backed out of Jon Favreau's graphic-novel adaptation Cowboys & Aliens on Monday because of conflicts with the forthcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel, which will be here before maybe anyone outside the Warners lot expected: Both films reportedly have June production starts. Assuming, of course, Holmes's literary custodian signs off on all that pesky gay subtext, so don't cast Tobey Maguire just yet, Favreau. [EW]
