Robert Downey Jr can't wait to shoot Sherlock Holmes 3

Los Angeles  - Robert Downey Jr. "can't wait" to make Sherlock Holmes 3.

The 51-year-old actor has played the titular British detective twice and loves working with director Guy Ritchie and he is hopeful he can reunite with the director and his co-star Jude Law - who plays his investigative partner Dr. John Watson - for the new film this year.

Speaking to ShortList magazine, he said: "We're talking about it right now. Now! I can't wait. We can do some preliminary stuff. If we could shoot it on Skype we could have done it in a week. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much as I love him - and he damn well should. When we're making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. We'll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I'm tired all the time, but I'm excited about it."

Downey - who reprises his role as Iron Man in new superhero blockbuster Captain America: Civil War - is always itching for fresh acting challenges but admits he has to limit his work schedule in order to keep a balance between his career and his private life.

The Hollywood superstar - who is married to producer Susan Downey and has three children from two relationships - said: "I'll get a little itchy here and there. But (the Marvel Universe) makes such a big splash that it keeps the pulse of any relevance going. Truth be told, I like working, but there's so many things I like to do. I have kids. I'm a martial artist. I hang out with Posh Tom. I've been working since I was a kid, so sometimes I do get itchy, but I get a week off and it's pleasant. It's a manageable schedule."
