Hiroyuki Sakada (who is, by the way my favorite actor), will be costarring with Ian McKellen (again, my favorite actor), a distinguished actor of England. This is wonderful. In Japan, we call these kind of things “summer break and new year’s came at the same time (two celebrations coming at once).


  1. Its a movie about a 93 year old Sherlock Homes who has retired from  his detective work.
  2. The original is Mitch Cullins’ “A Slight Trick of the Mind”
  3. Directed by Bill Condon (I’m a BIG fan of “Chikago”)
  4. Hiyoyuki Sanada will be play the part of a man who Sherlock meets in Japan, and knows well about plants.


I wonder who will play Watson??
