Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown may be venturing into real film star territory very soon. While she certainly made a splash on the aforementioned horror series for Netflix, she won’t be making her feature film debut until Godzilla: King of Monsters hits next March.
However, the actress isn’t wasting any time. According to a new report from Deadline, Brown has just locked down a deal with Legendary Entertainment to star in and produce a film series based on the young adult fiction series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries.
In the books, Enola is the fourteen-year-old sister of Sherlock Holmes, and goes on her own series of mysterious adventures. While the premise itself seems a bit derivative and pandering, this Nancy Springer-written book series has been well-received by critics, and given that it’s been picked up by Legendary, has some real potential to hit with audiences on the big screen.
This deal with Legendary comes on the heels of her finishing up production in the aforementioned Godzilla sequel, and it would seem to imply that both parties had a positive experience. The most interesting piece of news here is that she will be working as a producer. Given her young age, I can’t help but wonder how someone that young produces, but it likely has to do with the fact that her production company is centered around here. I’d be very surprised if she actually did some real producer work here, and that it wasn’t left up to whoever is running her company.
Regardless, given her work on Stranger Things, she seems like a solid pick for a young sleuth, and we’re sure it’ll find its audience if executed well.
