Following the success of the Enola Holmes film series, Netflix has announced that a third instalment of the mystery franchise is in the works.
While fans had been clamouring for a third film, it wasn’t confirmed until the streamer’s Head of Film, Scott Stuber, recently told Collider another movie starring Millie Bobby Brown was in the works.
Brown, who has previously voiced concerns she wouldn’t be able to shake her character’s trademark fourth-wall breaks, was called a “great homegrown star” by Stuber.
He continued: “I mean, obviously, Stranger Things is huge for us in that, and watching her grow as an actress. We have a film called Damsel with her in the spring, which I’m really excited about, [from] Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.”
Whether Brown is playing Eleven in Stranger Things or the headstrong sister of Sherlock Holmes, Brown is clearly a huge asset to Netflix, as is the IP on the Sherlock Holmes series.
Stuber described the Holmes IP as “weirdly elastic”. He also mentioned how Warner Bros previously did an “incredible job” utilising it with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law on the 2009 Sherlock Holmes film.
Continuing the series with Brown at the helm is a compelling prospect for Netflix, with Stuber saying: “This idea that we can extend that IP with her is exciting. So, we’re working once again on a screenplay to try to get that. But yes, aspiration. I’d like to do another one.”
