Millie Bobby Brown always knew she wanted to play Enola Holmes.

The 16-year-old, along with sister Paige, discovered the mystery novels by Nancy Springer and with the help of their parents approached Legendary Pictures who quickly jumped on board.

"We leapt at the opportunity to bring a female lens to Sherlock Holmes, and it felt timely: It may be a story set in the Victorian era, but it's about a girl who is trying to find her path, a girl who is trying to find her power in the world," recalls Producer and Legendary Vice Chairman, Mary Parent.
