Budding icon and breakout star of Stranger Things Millie Bobby Brown has just landed her first film series with Legendary Entertainment. Brown has struck a deal with the film company to star in their latest feature film series, which will be based on author Nancy Springer's mystery novels, Enola Holmes. What's even more impressive, Brown, 13, is also slated to produce the films through her PCMA Productions banner, according to Deadline, her first time in that role.
Last year, the Emmy-nominated actress was named one of Time's "Most Influential Teens" and it looks like she has no intentions of slowing down when it comes to her career. Springer's book series centers around the title character, Enola Holmes, who is the 14-year-old sister of legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. The stories combine canon characters and settings from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's series with new mysteries in a plot that puts Sherlock's teenage sister at the center. I don't know about you, but this sounds like the perfect role for an ambitious, committed, and feisty young actress like Brown.
Brown's recent role in the Godzilla sequel likely put her in the running for Enola Holmes, as the Michael Dougherty–directed film is also produced by Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros.
