Downey, Jr. and Law tipped for Some Like It Hot remake

The actors have starred together in two films based on the adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle’s super-sleuth and they have now been linked to the roles made famous by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in a new version of the 1959 classic.

Hollywood bosses are reportedly set to remake the movie, which also starred Marilyn Monroe, and the actors are favourites to don drag to play a pair of musicians who dress up as women to join an all-female band, according to Britain’s Sunday Express.

Lemmon was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Jerry/Geraldine in the original film, which was nominated for a total of six Academy Awards. The film won just one for Best Costume.
