Millie Bobby Brown to Produce, Star in Legendary's Enola Holmes Film Series

Stranger Things breakout star Millie Bobby Brown is having another banner year. The young actress has been lauded numerous times for her poise and maturity in dealing with the Hollywood machine, and the world is waiting to see what she does next. According to Deadline, the next project on the distant horizon is a multi-movie deal with Legendary Pictures, to produce (with her PCMA Productions banner) and star in their film adaptation of the Enola Holmes books by author Nancy Springer.

Springer's books center around the younger Holmes sibling, sister to Mycroft and Sherlock, as she also solves mysteries.  The first entry, The Case of the Missing Marquess, was published in 2006,  the series now has six books.

Brown would be (we assume, because DUH) playing the title character, Enola Holmes.

No other information is available about the deal yet, but we'll let you know when we learn more.
