Millie Bobby Brown's New Netflix Original Is Totally Different From 'Stranger Things'
Henry Cavill also stars in the movie!
She’s back! You may recognize 16-year-old Millie Bobby Brown from her role on Stranger Things, but the actress has a new and exciting project on the way this fall. The film is called Enola Holmes on Netflix and features Brown alongside plenty of familiar faces.
On June 25, the streamer revealed the first look at the brand new movie, showing Brown in her role as Enola — otherwise known as the little sister of famous detective Sherlock Holmes.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the movie is based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries book series by Nancy Springer.
The site also mentions that the film takes place on Enola’s sweet sixteen when she wakes up to find that her mother has mysteriously disappeared. An assortment of gifts have been left behind for the young girl, but no apparent clues.
As she’s left in the care of her two older brothers who want to send her off to a finishing school, Enola makes the decision to run off to London in hopes of tracking down her mom.
As she begins to unravel the mystery, Enola crosses paths with a runaway Lord and finds herself entangled in a conspiracy that could set back the course of history.
Apart from Brown, the movie stars several other actors who are no stranger to the world of Netflix.
Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia inwill take on the role of Sherlock, and Sam Claflin who recently starred in will play Enola’s other brother, Mycroft.
Helena Bonham Carter (Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Susie Wokoma (Year of the Rabbit), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim), and Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions) also appear in the movie.
According to Variety, Netflix is facing a lawsuit from the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle, who created the character of Sherlock Holmes, over the film.
The lawsuit alleges that the film depicts the characterization of Enola that’s featured in the final 10 Sherlock Holmes novels.
Enola Holmes will premiere on Netflix sometime this September. You can check out the first look below.
