Guy-ritchie

Guy Ritchie (born 10 September, 1968; Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England) is the director of the 2009 Sherlock Holmes film and the 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. A third Sherlock Holmes film is planned.

Ritchie has been a screenwriter, film director and producer and is probably best known for directing Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Swept Away, Revolver, RocknRolla, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and the live-action remake of Disney's Aladdin. Despite all his cinematic work, however, he is probably at least as famous for being Madonna's ex-husband.

His work includes British gangster films, and the Sherlock Holmes films starring Robert Downey Jr. Ritchie left school at age 15 and worked entry-level jobs in the film industry before going on to direct television commercials.
