As revealed via Deadline, Legendary Entertainment has signed a deal with Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown to produce and star in an adaptation of Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes Mysteries novel series. The Emmy-nominated actress will be producing the feature film through her PCMA Productions banner, while Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes will oversee the project for Legendary.
The popular mystery series began with The Case of the Missing Marquess in 2006. Subsequent novels include The Case of the Left-Handed Lady, The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets, The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan, The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline, and The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye. These books center around Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ younger sister and skilled detective, Enola.
The Case of the Missing Marquess and The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline were nominated for Edgar Awards in 2007 and 2010, respectively. No release date for the Enola Holmes Mysteries adaptation has been announced as of yet.
Brown recently worked with Legendary, starring in director Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla sequel. This film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
