Netflix lands rights to Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes

We’re thrilled to announce that Netflix has acquired the rights to THE CASE OF THE MISSING MARQUESS by Nancy Springer, which is the first book in Springer’s six-part series. Legendary Entertainment’s forthcoming film, titled ENOLA HOLMES, tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’s younger sister Enola, and the mysteries which she investigates.

From FLEABAG director Sam Bradbeer, the film will be led by Millie Bobbie Brown, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Fiona Shaw and Helena Bonham Carter.

The novels have been published to critical acclaim. Kirkus awarded its starred review, saying that Springer introduces us to ‘an innocent but capable young sleuth’ with ‘gleeful panache’.

The film’s release date is to be confirmed.
