While Sharpe's book is scheduled to be published by Penguin Random House in early 2021, Aggregate Films' Tracey Nyberg struck a deal with the streamer to adapt the novel to film. Brown will star in the upcoming Enola Holmes opposite Henry Cavill (The Witcher). She plays the title character as Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes' rebellious teen sister. Enola shares her superhuman power of deduction like her siblings. Slated for a September 2020 release despite pending litigation from the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who created the Sherlock Holmes franchise of novels. Netflix is also working on trying iron out details on shooting the fourth season of Stranger Things as production companies try to sort procedures during the pandemic. Similarly, Bateman looks to start work on the fourth and final season of Ozark once production gets underway. Despite nine nominations for his Netflix shows, the actor finally scored his lone Emmy in 2019 for directorial work on Ozark.
