From Magneto, to Gandalf, and now Sherlock Holmes, Sir Ian McKellen continues to tackle one great role after another. Mr. Holmes is adapted from Mitch Cullin's book A Slight Trick of the Mind and finds the 93 year old sleuth retired and passing the time by beekeeping. As reported by Deadline, McKellen did all his own stunts when it came to handling the bees. Starring alongside McKellen are Laura Linney, Holmes's housekeeper, and her son, Milo Parker, a boy protege Holmes seems fond of. The story finds Holmes looking back on his final case, which still remains unsolved.
