Millie Bobby Brown is ditching her Stranger Things sci-fi/horror roots to take on the role of Sherlock's teen sister in upcoming Netflix movie Enola Holmes. Ahead of the film's September drop date, the streaming giant has released a set of first look pictures, and we can confirm we'll definitely be adding it to the watch list.
The film features an all-star cast, with Henry Cavill playing Sherlock Holmes and Sam Claflin taking on Mycroft, while Helena Bonham Carter plays Mrs Holmes.
Based on the Enola Holmes book series by Nancy Springer, the film focuses on super-sleuth Enola, who sets off on a mission to find her missing mother (Bonham-Carter) and "unravels a dangerous conspiracy around a mysterious young Lord" - all the while outwitting her brother.
The movie is directed by Fleabag and Killing Eve director Harry Bradbeer, while His Dark Materials and The Eddy writer Jack Thorne is behind the screenplay. The film also stars Harry Potter’s Fiona Shaw, Unforgotten's Adeel Akhtar and Vanity Fair's Frances de la Tour.
Netflix appears to be going ahead with the film despite being sued by the estate of Sherlock creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. According to Deadline, the estate is suing Netflix for copyright and trademark issues relating to the film’s portrayal of Sherlock as possessing emotions. It's not yet clear if Netflix has responded to the lawsuit.
Watch Enola Holmes on Netflix this September.
