The Enola Holmes Mysteries are a series of YA detective novels about Sherlock Holmes’ teenage sister—a character who didn’t appear in the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. The books feature characters from the Sherlock Holmes canon, but with a more modern, tween-friendly twist since they were published from 2006-2010.
Brown will star in the title role, with Helena Bonham Carter playing her mother. Meanwhile Cavill—best known for playing muscular action heroes like Superman—is a more offbeat choice to play Sherlock Holmes. This will be Brown’s first major lead role, after appearing in the ensemble cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters this year.
Harry Bradbeer (Killing Eve, Fleabag) is onboard to direct, with Jack Thorne adapting the screenplay. Over the past few years, Thorne has become the go-to guy for this kind of British YA adaptation, recently writing The Secret Garden and the TV adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, and co-writing J.K. Rowling’s stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
