Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown to Produce and Star in Enola Holmes Film Series
We’ve always known that Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown was talented beyond her years. Now, at the ripe old age of 13, it seems that she’s adding “producer” to her list of credits.
In a deal with Legendary Entertainment, Brown will be starring in a series of films based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries, a YA detective series written by Nancy Springer, in which Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ younger sister, Enola, runs away from home after their mother’s disappearance to solve mysteries while eluding Sherlock’s efforts to bring her home.
Brown will be producing through her production banner, PCMA Productions, and the fact that this 13-going-on-14-year-old girl has her own production company makes me feel like such a slacker. Still, in her short but stellar career, she’s made some amazing choices (except for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. That show sucked. But it was her first thing ever, so that gets a pass.).
I’m curious to discover how she’ll be interacting with the project as a producer (what decisions will she be making? Does she already have a “dream team” of cast and crew in mind?). It’s always thrilling to see women, no matter their age, take charge of their creative choices. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what she does with this project.
And, of course, I’m looking forward to seeing her in the role of Enola, which seems like exactly the right kind of role for her. Smart, brash, and confined by no man. Not even her big brother. I’m already sold.
