Deadline has revealed that Rocket Pictures will be making a sequel to Gnomeo & Juliet, entitled Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes. What's more, Elton is already in the midst of composing songs for the follow-up, which is being eyed for a fall production start.

The script, which is currently being written by the first film's Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil, will center on Gnomeo, Juliet and their friends' efforts to track down several missing lawn gnomes with the help of Sherlock Holmes' gnome doppelganger ''Sherlock Gnomes.''

However, the hunt is on for a new director.

''Gnomeo'' grossed nearly $194 million worldwide on a reported $10 million budget
