The last time director Bill Condon and actor Ian McKellen teamed up, we got 'Gods and Monsters,' a film that earned Condon an Oscar for his screenplay and McKellen a nomination for his performance. Now, a bunch of 'X-Men,' 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Twilight' films later, the two of them are collaborating once more, returning to their more traditional and dramatic roots. Condon and McKellen have signed on to direct and star in 'A Slight Trick of the Mind,' which will see the legendary British actor take on the role of legendary British detective, Sherlock Holmes.
