Holmes now enjoys his hobby as a bee-keeper and living a quite life. However, he is struggling to come to grips with his diminishing mind and writes in a journal to try to hold on to his fading memories. As he is writing in these journals he starts to reminisce about his days as a world-class private detective and one particular 50 year-old case starts to haunt him. With the help of Roger, Holmes sets out to solve his final case.
The movie was directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls and Gods And Monsters) and is set to hit cinemas in July 2015.
