Two-time Oscar nominee Helena Bonham Carter joined Millie Bobby Brown in the Legendary adventure film Enola Holmes. The plot of the project will be based on a series of novels by Nancy Springer, which screenwriter Jack Thorne ("Star Wars: Skywalker. Rising") undertook to adapt for the big screen. The director's chair of the film was taken by Harry Bradbeer, who worked on the popular TV series Killing Eve.|
The literary source tells the story of the younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, a girl named Enola, who is also a very talented detective. The book series began in 2006 with the novel Enola Holmes and the Marquis in a Mousetrap. The first and fifth novels were nominated for the Edgar Awards in 2007 and 2010, respectively.
The star of "Mysterious Events" will play the title character in the film adaptation, but Helena got the role of her mother (and, of course, the mother of Sherlock and Mycroft). According to the plot of the film, Enola's mother disappears, and the girl, without waiting for help from the brothers, begins to search for her on her own. Filming of "Enola Holmes" is in full swing in Buckinghamshire, with a release scheduled for next year.
