Now this looks interesting. A brand new Sherlock Holmes movie is on the way, but it's not the latest chapter of Warner Bros' franchise, that stars Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. Instead, it's a film about an older Sherlock Holmes, set to be played by Sir Ian McKellen. And we now hear that he's been joined in the cast by the thoroughly brilliant Laura Linney. She will play Holmes' housekeeper, Mrs Munro, in the new movie.
The film, called A Slight Trick Of The Mind, is set to be directed by Bill Condon (Gods And Monsters, the final two Twilight movies). Linney and Condon previously worked together on the tremendously underrated Kinsey.
