This news goes to Eleven!
"Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown, 13, has already booked her next franchise. According to Deadline, she'll both produce and star in a feature film series based on the "Enola Holmes Mysteries" novels by Nancy Springer.
Enola Holmes, in the novels, is the 14-year-old sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes, and also Mycroft Holmes, both 20+ years her senior. The six novel series started in 2006 with "The Case of the Missing Marquess," showing Enola as a skilled detective in her own right. (Side note: Did you notice that "Enola" written backward is "Alone"?)
There have been several Sherlock Holmes adaptations over the decades, with recent modern versions starring Robert Downey, Jr. on the big screen and Benedict Cumberbatch on the small screen. It'll be refreshing to see a new young Holmes on the case.
Millie will produce the Enola Holmes film series through her PCMA Productions banner. She already has a relationship with Legendary Entertainment in the "Godzilla: King of Monsters" sequel coming out March 22nd, 2019.
Millie just joined her "Stranger Things" costars at the 2018 Golden Globes, where they didn't win a blessed thing other than our hearts. "Stranger Things" Season 3 hasn't started filming yet, and the cast admitted they don't know anything about what's to come. Netflix is expected to release Season 3 in either late 2018 or (more likely) 2019. There's no release date yet for the Enola Holmes films, but we'll stay on the case!
