Sherlock Star Martin Freeman On Benedict Cumberbatch, 'It's Like Love': Ian McKellan To Take On Holmes In New Movie

"Sherlock" season 3 may still be a ways away, but Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are still keeping their relationship-and fans-happy.

During a recent Q&A with students at University College Dublin, Freeman discussed his chemistry with Benedict Cumberbatch on "Sherlock."

"Benedict and I do have this chemistry on set, you know, that doesn't even particularly have anything to do with good acting - even though, obviously, he's a brilliant actor - but there's something more personal about it, you know, it's like love," says Martin Freeman.

"Oh God, why did I phrase it that way?"

Indeed, given all the fanfiction and hilarious teases regarding the relationship between Sherlock and Watson, Martin Freeman may have given fans exactly what they're looking for.

And Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will reunite again in the next "Hobbit" film, called "The Desolation of Smaug."

But the acclaimed BBC series is not the only incarnation of Sherlock Holmes fans will see in the near future.

According to Zee News, "The Hobbit" actor Ian McKellan will portray the iconic role in a new film called "A Slight Trick of the Mind."

Reportedly, the actor will portray an aging Sherlock as he begins to lose his memory without Watson by his side.

Currently, "Sherlock" is awaiting an air date despite all three episodes being completed as far as filming.
