Holmes Film with Sir Ian

Tags: ,
Sir Ian McKellen will play Sherlock Holmes in a film adaptation of a novel by Mitch Cullin.

The novel in question is A Slight Trick Of The Mind, which I've not read. I've heard mixed things about it, mostly amounting to interesting idea (the focus is a much older Holmes trying to solve an old case while dealing with deteriorating mental faculties) but maybe the writing doesn't live up to the concept (which would mean just waiting for the adaptation might be the way to go). Any flisters read it?

Tangentially related: a theater near me has finally announced that they will be airing the encore broadcasts of both versions of the Cumberbatch / Miller Frankenstein when I'll actually be here! I've only seen the one with Cumberbatch as the Creature before and desperately want to see the other version and wouldn't mind again seeing the one I saw before. Of course, this isn't happening until late January, but still, HOORAY!
