If one thing's for sure, it's that Millie Bobby Brown is dominating Hollywood. She slays all her roles, including her parts as El in Stranger Things and Madison Russell in Godzilla: King of Monsters. Now, Millie's about to add to her resume. She's playing the part of Enola Holmes in a new film based on a book series of the same name. Enola is Sherlock Holmes' younger sister, so you know she's been blessed with the mystery-solving gene. Not only is Millie starring in the movie, but she's also producing it. The movie won't be out for a while, but it already sounds like a must-see. Here are all the details on Millie's new movie.

What is Enola Holmes about?

Though there are several books in the series, the movie will pick up with the disappearance of Enola's mother on her 16th birthday. Enola wants to track her mom down and she tries to enlist help from her two brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. But Enola realizes that her brothers are not interested in helping her. Instead, they'd rather ship her off to boarding school. So, instead Enola escapes to London, where she begins to find out why her mother left and what she's really hiding from her family.

Who else is in it?

Along with Millie, other big names starring in the film include Henry Cavill, who played Superman in the DC Extended Universe, as Sherlock Holmes. The Hunger Games star Sam Claflin is playing Enola's other brother, Mycroft. Helena Bonham Carter stars as their mother, Eudoria Holmes, while Addel Akhtar plays Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lastrade. The headmistress of the boarding school Enola is sent off to, Miss Harrison, is played by Harry Potter star Fiona Shaw. Meanwhile, Louis Partridge stars as Enola's love interest Lord Viscount Tewksbury.

Does it have a release date?

Get your calendars ready! The movie will officially be released on Netflix on September 23.

Who wrote the book series?

The mystery series is written by Nancy Springer. It launched in 2006 and has six installments, which hopefully means we'll be seeing some sequel films in the future!
