Netflix has acquired the global rights to Legendary Entertainment’s upcoming film “Enola Holmes”. The film stars Millie Bobby Brown (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, “Stranger Things”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games” films, “Me Before You”) and is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries. The film follows Sherlock Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. “Enola Holmes” puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.
Other cast includes: Adeel Akhtar (“The Big Sick”), Fiona Shaw (“Killing Eve”), Frances de la Tour (“Into the Woods”), Louis Partridge (“Medici”), Burn Gorman (“Pacific Rim”), Susan Wokoma (“Crazyhead”), with Henry Cavill (“The Witcher”), and two-time Oscar nominee Helena Bonham Carter (“The Crown”).
There is no release date yet but we will keep you updated as we find out. Brown is also currently working on a project for Netflix with her Sister.
