Lupin, The French crime-thriller that went on to become Netflix’s most popular Original after releasing just a few weeks ago, can be getting a dream crossover in the form of Sherlock Holmes.
The News was hyped by the show’s creator George Kay, who’s currently looking for ways to indulge in Sherlock into the crime series. The ideation for this actually comes from the original story’s writer Maurice Leblanc, who constructed Arsène Lupin in the early 20th-century. In 1906, Leblanc developed a story that featured Sherlock Holmes, titled Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle immediately filled copyright after seeing his character, but Leblanc, of course, proceeded to portray Doyle’s character, with the sarcastic new name Herlock Sholmes.
Hinting on this Epic-Crossover, George Kay stated to the press that “it’s not a very satisfying pun or play on words, but I do like the attitude behind it. Speaking really honestly, there have been discussions.” Kay added, “there are some ideas circling that, that I have, that I’m really interested in exploring. The Arsène Lupin fanbase, which is evident within the show, would have to lock antlers with the Sherlock Holmes fanbase – you want to take it to a really meta-level.”
