Ian McKellen's Mr Holmes is being sued by Sherlock Holmes creator's estate

22 May 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate is suing Miramax, Roadside Attractions and director Bill Condon over the upcoming Mr Holmes.

The film stars Ian McKellen as an elderly Sherlock Holmes who travels to Japan in an attempt to solve a 50-year-old cold case - however, the lawsuit claims that Sherlock Holmes creator Conan Doyle's heirs still own the rights to the detective's days in retirement.

Mr Holmes was adapted from the 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin, which is also named in the lawsuit, The Wrap reports.

The estate claims that Cullin appropriated elements of a late Sherlock Holmes story - The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier - making the ensuing novel and film adaptation in breach of copyright.

In a statement, Benjamin Allison, an attorney with Sutin Thayer & Brown, which represents the estate, said: "There's clearly a lot of creativity in the book - »

Preacher pilot: Tom Brooke cast as Fiore

20 May 2015 12:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Brooke – seen in Sherlock and Game Of Thrones – has landed an angelic role in AMC’s adaptation of the Preacher comic book…

With the pilot episode of Preacher currently shooting, we’re assuming this is news that AMC has known for a while, but has only just chosen to announce. Regardless, it’s still nice to report that Tom Brooke is joining the show.

Mr Brooke is an English actor, who made a big impression as Bill ‘Wiggie’ Wiggins (Sherlock’s drug-loving sidekick, with an eye for his own deductions) in 2014 Sherlock episode His Last Vow.

That was hardly his first rodeo, though, he also played Lothar Frey in season 3 of Game Of Thrones. He’s also appeared in pretty much every British crime-based show going, including Ripper Street, Lewis, Foyle’s War, Hustle and Thieves Like Us. He also appeared in cinematic comedies Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason »

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

Emilia Fox gets swept away and Jamelia has had enough in tonight's (March 6) Bear Grylls: Mission Survive.

The celebrities have to make their way down a set of rapids in Friday's episode, and tensions run high after Grylls is forced to dive in to save Silent Witness's Fox.

Fox was attempting to grab Jamelia's bag when she slipped in and was taken down the river.

The pressures of the jungle are too much for Jamelia too. After a tropical storm and torrential rain, the singer makes it clear she wants out.

She says: "I don't want to do this anymore…I clearly don't get on with them, one of them spoke to me like I was a piece of s**t... I can't do this."

The jungle is also too much for Lewis actor Laurence Fox to handle. He is found walking round the camp at 3am in a 'sense of delirium'. »
