Back in January I posted a press release about Anthony D.P. Mann's Canadian indie film project SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SHADOW WATCHERS.


The sensational details of a gruesome murder in The Daily Gazette have London in a panic, as a blood-thirsty madman - more vicious than Jack the Ripper - preys upon the city. Of greater concern to Scotland Yard, however, is that the account of the murder was published nearly two hours prior to the crime having been committed! 

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson – the Great Detective and his faithful assistant and chronicler – find themselves challenged with one of their most baffling cases - “The Case of the Woman Who Was Murdered Tomorrow”!

Will an innocent man be sent to the gallows?

How much blood will be shed before a scarred fiend is brought to justice? …And who are the mysterious Shadow Watchers, a coven of ominous figures who orchestrate terror from within the darkness?

Starring Anthony D.P. Mann as Holmes and Terry Wade as Dr. Watson, “Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow Watchers” is a horrifying new adventure, produced with the kind permission of the Conan Doyle Estate*.
DVD / Online Release: 2010

Now here's a trailer for it.

SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE BAKER STREET IRREGULARS is a series of four graphic novel stories to be released by Franklin Watts / EDGE books, a division of Hachette Children’s Books, in March of 2011.

Written by Tony Lee, with art by Dan Boultwood, these four books are said to chronicle the adventures of the Baker Street Irregulars, Holmes’ street urchin aides, during the period of the Great Hiatus when Holmes was believed dead after his fateful encounter with Professor James Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Stories titles are: 'The Adventure Of The Missing Detective’, ‘The Adventure Of The Phantom Of Drury Lane’, ‘The Adventure Of  The Charge Of  The Old Brigade’ and ‘The Adventure Of The Family Reunion.’ In an effort to place the stories in Canonical context, Sherlockian expert Leslie S. Klinger was brought in as a consultant on the project.
