More on Ian Hart’s (The late Professor Quirrell) next movie:

The Hound of the Baskervilles is set to prowl once more as Tiger Aspect Productions are shooting a new Holmes film to be broadcast on BBC television this Christmas. The new project (reportedly budgeted at £3.5 million) stars Australian actor Richard Roxburgh (Duke of Monroth in Moulin Rouge, The Touch) as Sherlock Holmes, with Ian Hart (Quirrell in Harry Potter, Backbeat) as Watson, John Nettles (Inspector Barnaby in Midsomer Murders, Bergerac) as Dr. Mortimer and Richard E. Grant (Scarlet Pimpernel, Mycroft in A Case of Evil) as Stapleton. According to the BBC’s Head of Drama commissioning, Jane Tranter, computer generated effects will make this “a chilling thriller for the 21st century.” The production shoots from April 8 for six weeks on location in the Isle of Man, Liverpool and Cumbria.
