First Pic of Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in MR. HOLMES!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
GODS AND MONSTERS, Bill Condon's portrait of FRANKENSTEIN director James Whale, was my first exposure of the great Ian McKellen, an actor that I would grow to greatly admire. He has taken on a wide range of roles throughout his career, and he is now re-teaming with Condon to add one more classic to his list.
MR. HOLMES will tell a new story in the adventures of the great detective Sherlock Holmes, with McKellen taking on the titular role. Previous titled A SLIGHT TRICK OF THE MIND, this film will catch up with a retired, 93-year-old Holmes in 1947, living with his housekeeper and her detective son, as a cold case from years before continues to prey on his mind.
Ian McKellan taking on the role of one of literature's most iconic characters is a prospect that, frankly, sounds awesome! I can't wait to see how this shapes up. McKellen tweeted the first picture of himself in character today. Check it out!
