Netflix has also landed the rights to Mill Bobbie Brown’s next feature film Enola Holmes. Brown plays Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’s rebellious teenage sister, Enola. Enola is a gifted super-sleuth who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. The film is set to premiere in September. “England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change,” the film’s official synopsis reads. “On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for ‘proper’ young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history.”
As for Stranger Things, Netflix is still working out when Brown and the rest of the cast will be able to return to the production to shoot the third season.
