Film - Enola Holmes


Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill are set to reprise their roles as Enola and Sherlock Holmes in a sequel to last year's film ...


The sequel is being developed and produced by Legendary in partnership with Netflix after Netflix acquired the worldwide rights, ex-China, to the first film from Legendary last year.

Enola Holmes puts a dynamic female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family. Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, the films tell the story of Sherlock Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her famous siblings.

The film is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries which is comprised of six books in total. The first and fifth books in the series were nominated for Edgar Awards in 2007 and 2010, respectively.

So far only Brown and Cavill are confirmed in their roles, with Millie Bobby Brown saying “I can’t wait to collaborate again with my Enola Holmes family! Enola holds a special place in my heart - she’s strong, fearless, intelligent and brave. I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!” However we do know that the film is to be directed by Emmy and BAFTA-winner Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag, Killing Eve, Ramy) and written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Aeronauts) who also penned the first film.

Further casting and a release date will no doubt be announced soon.
