Millie Bobby Brown To Star In New Netflix Original ”Enola Holmes”
Meet Enola Holmes, your very beloved Sherlock Holmes’ little sister who is all braced up for her own adventure. Before we begin, check out the film’s exclusive trailer:
Earlier today, Netflix dropped the first trailer for its upcoming enigmatic movie Enola Holmes, which is based on The Enola Holmes Mysteries book series by author Nancy Springer. Enola Holmes follows the adventures of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ little sister after their mother (Helena Bonham-Carter) disappears from their country estate with no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why.
The film set in 1884 would be featuring Millie Bobby Brown, who rose to prominence for her role as Eleven in the Netflix science fiction-horror series Stranger Things, as a smart and rebellious teenager Enola Holmes. After a fun and care free childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), who are adamant on sending her away to a finishing school and get her groomed to become a proper young lady.
The hunk of Hollywood and DC megastar Henry Cavill has been casted to play the most famous detective known to us, Sherlock Holmes. However it is Holmes’ little sister Enola that leads the way in solving the case in this film and drives the story ahead. The role of the other brother ‘Mycroft Holmes’ who is the eldest of the siblings is played by Sam Claflin. Claflin has previously appeared in films including The Hunger Games films and Me Before You. The role of the missing mother of the Holmes family is played by the much critically-acclaimed actress Helena Bonham Carter who has featured in blockbuster films like The Crown, The King’s Speech, Alice In Wonderland, Les Miserables and more notable for her vicious role as the Death Eater, Bellatrix Lestrange, in the Harry Potter films. The cast also includes Adeel Akhtar, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Burn Gorman and Susan Wokoma.
The news of the film’s release date was shared by Brown, Cavill and Clafflin on their Instagram pages by a rather odd way. The three took to the social networking site and posted a teaser of the film, alongside a message in the form of an anagram, “alone loshme reeebtpms wnettyrhitd”.
When deciphered, the message read, “Enola Holmes September Twentythird.”
Directed by Fleabag‘s Harry Bradbeer, th film is scheduled for a release on Netflix on September 23 2020.
