Ritchie helmed the global box-office hit "Sherlock Holmes" in 2009 with Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law, as well as its sequel, "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" in 2011. 2015 saw the release of a film he wrote, produced and directed, the big-screen adaptation of the TV series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," which starred Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, and in 2017 he wrote, produced and directed "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" starring Charlie Hunnam and Eric Bana.
