First Look: Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in "Mr. Holmes" Film

First Look: Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in "Mr. Holmes" FilmSubmit Comment
Despite two "Sherlock Holmes" films with Robert Downey Jr and two different TV series ("Sherlock" and "Elementary"), another new film based on the popular detective is now in development. And it stars Ian McKellen.

The actor took to Twitter to unveil a first look at himself as Sherlock in the film called "Mr. Holmes." He writes: "Over 70 actors have previously played Sherlock Holmes. Now he's 93 years old and it's my turn." Check out the photo below.

The new movie is directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Dreamgirls) and co-stars Laura Linney. It's currently shooting in the UK and focuses on an aged (93 years old), retired Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) as he looks back on his life and grapples with an unsolved case involving a beautiful woman.

70 actors is an exaggeration. It's more in the 25-30 range.

True^

And really.. Holmes lived up until his 90's in this version. That's nuts. They should have made his age more 70's to mid 80's if they wanted a really old Holmes solving one last case. 93 is just.. A bit much to me.

^^^Actually you're both wrong, according to Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_actors_who_have_played_Sherlock_Holmes

Almost 100, but with a few repeats more like 80.

Consider me corrected.

99 actors but a bitch ain't one.
