This is the first official image released of Sir Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in the upcoming film A Slight Trick of the Mind. Slated to premiere sometime in 2015, this is the first glimpse we've seen from the film.
Adapted from Mitch Cullin's book of the same name, the story centers on a 93-year-old Holmes as he keeps himself busy with beekeeping, writing in his journal, and trying to come to grips with his diminishing mind. The film will also star Laura Linney and is to be directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Fifth Estate).
What do you think about A Slight Trick of the Mind? Do you love Sherlock so much that your thirst is unquenchable? Or is it getting to the point where he's joined Vampires and Abraham Lincoln at the top of today's oversaturated topic list? Join the discussion in the comments!
