Millie Bobby Brown is the Female Sherlock Holmes

By Michael Love Michael

I'll admit it: I get a twinge of jealousy (ok: regret) when I hear of some 13-year-old prodigy killing the game before I decide between Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes for breakfast.

JK, but you know how Millie Bobby Brown makes you feel. She's that on fire. Spinning her badass role as Eleven on Stranger Things into further badasserie™, Brown has been tapped to star in a new film series based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries novels by Nancy Springer. Furthermore, the rising mega-talent will produce the series.

The last YA thing I read was the Fear Street series by RL Stine, where teenagers murdered each other in preposterous scenarios, so I'm not super familiar with the Enola Holmes franchise. I do know that in the books, Enola is the 14-year-old sister of gumshoe detective Sherlock Holmes, and by learning from him, she becomes a crafty missing persons crimestopper in her own right.

We don't know when the films are set to premiere, but it all does sound pretty chic. Imagine Millie Bobby in a tweed suit and tie and monocle, fully aware of her powerful teenaged self, destroying the patriarchy one bad guy at a time. In the meantime, we've got a lot of reading to do.
