She tends to be more of a mystery herself as Eleven in Stranger Things, but if all goes to plan, Millie Bobby Brown will be the one investigating unusual cases in a new film featuring the Enola Holmes character.

The sharp-witted young detective, the sister of better-known Holmes Sherlock and Mycroft, is the star of a book series created by Nancy Springer that kicked off in 2006 with The Case Of The Missing Marquess and has since run to six titles. So you can imagine that Legendary Entertainment, which is partnering with Brown's own production company – yes, at 13, she's already enough of a bad ass to have her own company – to produce this first effort, will be hoping it leads to a series of movies.

Brown is already part of a big Legendary project, having snagged the lead in Godzilla: King Of Monsters, the 'Zilla sequel that is now headed on its journey through post-production. It'll be out on 22 March next year.
