Filming on the Sherlock Holmes sequel was halted earlier this week after Robert Downey Jr. fell ill, according to a new report.
The actor is currently filming the follow-up to Guy Ritchie’s 2009 film in London, but he pulled out of the shoot on Tuesday after complaining he felt unwell, reports Britain’s The Sun.

A source tells the newspaper, “Everyone was fired up and ready to go. Word filtered around that Robert had a bit of a sniffle and wouldn’t be coming in. It was a bit of a shock.”
