'Stranger Things' actress Millie Bobby Brown to produce and star in film series based on Enola Holmes novels.
 

"In a deal with Legendary Entertainment, Brown will be starring in a series of films based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries, a YA detective series written by Nancy Springer, in which Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ younger sister, Enola, runs away from home after their mother’s disappearance to solve mysteries while eluding Sherlock’s efforts to bring her home."

 

"The first book in a collection of six is called The Case of the Missing Marquess, and it kicks off the adventures of Sherlock Holmes’s much-younger sister, Enola, who neither he nor his brother Mycroft take very seriously, and they try to ship her off to boarding school after their mother disappears. Enola of course won’t have that, so she runs away and ends up encountering various mysteries and kidnappings to solve. More familiar figures, like Dr. John Watson, show up throughout the series to bring Enola along on her journey to becoming the next top mind in the Holmes family."

That's about all the information available for now.  Thoughts?  Sound interesting?  Has anyone read these novels?

That sounds pretty cool. I've read the first few books and enjoyed them. Not sure how "translatable" they are, but certainly willing to give this gal a chance!

I'd never heard of her before, so when I saw that she was also going to produce the show, I assumed she must be in her 20s at least, and wondered how she could ever pass for a teen -- but now I see that she's not quite 14 herself. She's already been nominated for a primetime Emmy, too. So yeah, will certainly go see the movie!

Wonder who they'll get to play Sherlock, Mycroft, John Watson, and the other canonical characters who turn up in the books from time to time? I sure hope they keep them as occasional secondary characters, though. The books are about Enola.

Sounds interesting Artemis. I’d never heard of the books.

Carol, are these books aimed at teenagers? Not that it matters but I just wondered.

I believe they are Young Adult fiction, yes.

I'm not sure what their official age category is, but they're appropriate for children without being simplistic.  And I love the author's portrayal of the canonical characters.
