Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes… OK, he won’t be ready until 2015, when Ian McKellen will play an elderly Sherlock Holmes drawn out of retirement after World War II in Mr. Holmes. But you can see him here in a first glimpse, and I’m still/already excited.

The film, based on the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin, is being directed by Bill Condon and also stars Laura Linney as Holmes’ housekeeper Mrs. Munro.
