Netflix has acquired the rights to Ebola Holmes, a screen adaptation of the teen sister of famous detective Sherlock Holmes, with Stranger Things star Milly Bobby Brown in the starring role.
Based on the young adult novel series by author Nancy Springer, the upcoming film will see Brown veer off her super-powered character in Netflix‘s Stranger Things for a more realistic one in Victorian England.
Enola Holmes adapts the events of the first book The Case of the Missing Marquess and filming has already been completed but its post production timeframe has not decided due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brown plays the titular character who is the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill). She is as precocious and she is tenacious, and since Brown has already established heraelf as an actress with talent, acting the part should come naturally to her.
The official synopsis of Enola Holmes reads:
“Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, ENOLA HOLMES tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft 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.“
The film is directed by Harry Bradbeer and the cast members are Milly Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, Sam Clafin, Helena Bonham Carter, Fiona Shaw, Louis Partridge, Susan Wokoma, and Burn Gorman.
Enola Holmes is scheduled for release on November 20, 2020.
