A first official look at Mindhorn, the upcoming comedy movie directed by Sean Foley based on a script by Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby and starring Julian Barratt, Essie Davis, Andrea Riseborough, Russell Tovey, Simon Farnaby, Jessica Barden, Harriet Walter, Simon Callow, and Steve Coogan:
“Washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show ‘Mindhorn’, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a rather unique ability. As a captured MI5 Special Operative, Bruce Mindhorn’s eye was replaced by a super-advanced optical lie detector, which meant he could literally ‘see the truth’. Mindhorn escaped and fled to the Isle of Man, to recuperate in the island’s temperate microclimate, and became the best plain-clothes detective the island had ever seen…
Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville.”

The release date of the movie Mindhorn is set to May 5, 2017 in the UK.
