Netflix announced on Friday a sequel to the 2020 mystery film “Enola Holmes.”
The sequel will bring back Millie Bobby Brown, best known for her role as “Eleven” in the Netflix hit-series “The Stranger Things,” as Enola Holmes, a gifted supersleuth and the teen sister of Sherlock Holmes.
“I can’t wait to collaborate again with my ‘Enola Holmes’ family. Enola holds a special place in my heart – she’s strong, fearless, intelligent, and brave,” Brown shared with Netflix.
Henry Cavill will also reprise his role as Sherlock Holmes, who is known as the “world’s greatest detective.”
Brown, 17, who produced the first film, will again produce the sequel alongside her sister Paige Brown with their company, PCMA Productions.
In an interview with Variety last year, Brown said it was important to have young producers to give the youth an opportunity to tell their stories.
“Age shouldn’t define whether you can do something or not. Young filmmakers should get the opportunity to tell their stories, and I’ve just been lucky enough to share mine,” she said.
The film is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated, six-book series, “The Enola Holmes Mysteries.”
The sequel is being produced and developed by Legendary in partnership with Netflix after the streaming platform acquired the worldwide rights, apart from China, to the first film last year.
Released globally last year, the first film was viewed by an estimated 76 million households, according to Netflix.
“Enola Holmes” will again be directed by Harry Bradbeer and written by Jack Thorn. Charlene Grace Lao
