Legendary Entertainment has made a deal with Emmy-nominated breakout Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown to star in and produce a feature film series based on Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes Mysteries novel series. Brown will produce through her PCMA Productions banner.
Brown developed a relationship with Legendary as she just completed a starring role in the Michael Dougherty-directed Godzilla sequel for Legendary and Warner Bros.
The book series began with the 2006 title The Case of the Missing Marquess. The series spans six novels, revolving around mysteries investigated by Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ much younger sister, Enola, who proves to be a highly capable detective in her own right. The first and fifth books in the series were nominated for Edgar Awards in 2007 and 2010, respectively.
Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes will oversee the project for Legendary. Brown is represented by WME and attorney Steve Warren.
Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown has been nominated for Best Female Actor in a Drama Series at the Screen Actors Guild awards for the second year running.
The British actress, 13, beat her co-star Winona Ryder (who plays Joyce Byers) to the nomination, despite both of them being up for a nomination in the same category at the SAGs last year.
Millie – who plays character Eleven – will compete alongside Claire Foy, Laura Linney, Elisabeth Moss and Robin Wright for the accolade. Her Stranger Things co-star David Harbour (Jim Hopper) was nominated for Male Actor in a Drama Series.
The 80s-set Netflix series also received a nomination for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series, alongside The Crown, Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale and This Is Us.
Stranger Things’ SAG nominations comes after it received two Golden Globe nods earlier this week.
The show itself is up for Best Television Series — Drama and will compete alongside fellow Netflix series The Crown, as well as Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale and This Is Us.
The SAG awards 2018 will take place on the 21st January.
The nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards were announced Monday and Stranger Things has been nominated!

On a scale to one to ten, your style is Eleven! Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, 13, showcases her whimsical flair for fashion during fun-filled photo shoot in Sydney
She’s the prodigious star of the runaway Netflix hit Stranger Things.
And Millie Bobby Brown showcased her sensational flair for fashion as she worked not one but six looks for a sun soaked fashion shoot in Sydney on Thursday.
The 13-year-old actress kicked off fashion festivities in a navy blue playsuit underneath a Miu Miu dark olive coat with button embellishments on the lapels and pockets, which oozed military vibes.
Millie – who is in Australia for a number of Supernova Comic-Con conventions – kept her raven locks hidden underneath a military-esque peaked cap with a large red and black emblem.
Dialing back on the bling, Millie finished her look with a pair of black Dr Martens boots which she wore with the laces undone.
The teenage star’s presence was commanding as she stood atop a concrete pontoon with her hands on her hips while she waited to get her photo taken.
I’ve added scans of Millie and the Stranger Things cast from the new issue of SciFi Now. Big thanks to my good friend Alikat for these. Enjoy.
Millie was on Studio 10 this morning. Check out the interview below.
I’ve added scans of Millie from her cover issue of Variety magazine. I apologize for the delay. I really thought I had added them already. I’ve also added a handful of random clippings and a new photo session for her spread in Vogue UK‘s December issue. I will be adding scans once the issue is available to purchase. Check out a video from entitled “Vogue Meets The Next Generation Of Great British Actresses” from the issue, below and enjoy!
