Sir Ian Mckellen will add yet another icon to cast of characters he has portrayed. Screendaily has reported that Icon, See-Saw, FilmNation, Anne Carey, BBC Films will produce a feature about Sherlock Holmes coming out of retirement. Check out the plot below: 

The Plot: Set in 1947, the film follows a long-retired Sherlock Holmes, who lives in a sleepy Sussex village with his housekeeper and her amateur-sleuthing son. But rather than enjoying a peaceful retirement, the famous Baker Street detective is haunted by an unsolved case from 50 years ago. He remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife.

Slight Trick of the Mind begins filming April 2014.
