Sir Ian McKellen will take to the stage in London later this month for a special fundraising event in aid of The Ian Charleston Day Centre.
Sir Ian McKellen has signed a deal to write his autobiography.
Here’s our first proper look at Sir Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in his new film, Mr Holmes.
Sir Ian plays the super sleuth as a 93-year-old now living in retirement with his housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her son.
But Sherlock is still haunted by a case he never solved (shock!) and sets out to search for the truth once and for all – but without the aid of his trusty Dr Watson.
The film is directed by Bill Condon who worked with McKellen on the brilliant Gods And Monsters. It will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival next month and should be in cinemas later this year.
Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart are to appear together on the London stage next year.
They will star in a revival of No Man’s Land – which they performed in rep I’m New York last year (and I was lucky enough to see).
The pair last appeared together on stage in London when they collaborated on Waiting For Godot in 2009.
No news yet on where and when they play will be staged.
