The film is to be set in 1947, where Sherlock Holmes is in retirement. He lives with his housekeeper and her son, who is an amateur detective.
When a cold case from his past starts haunting him again, he is forced out of retirement and back onto the streets to solve the case. Unfortunately, Dr. Watson won’t be taking part in this adventure.
Mr. Holmes will open in the UK in 2015. with an exact release date yet to be determined. An exact date is still to be confirmed.
