First Look at Ian McKellen’s Sherlock for Bill Condon’s Mr Holmes


Seventy-five year old actor Sir Ian McKellen is set to play the 93 year old Sherlock Holmes in director Bill Condon’s (director of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2) Mr Holmes.


The film takes place in 1947, where McKellen plays a Holmes who is currently enjoying his retirement with his housekeeper and her amateur-sleuthing son. The story is based on a novel by Mitch Cullin, where Sherlock Holmes must solve the greatest mystery of his career from 50 years ago without Watson at his side, and with declining mental abilities.
