‘Enola Holmes’ director says a sequel talks are currently happening.
Netflix’s Enola Holmes may have hit the streaming platform this week, but the movie has Hollywood buzzing. Warner Bros. was originally planning to release the movie into theaters, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, they sold the distribution rights to Netflix.
Now, a sequel is reportedly in development. In a new interview to celebrate the movie’s success, director Harry Bradbeer has confirmed talks are already underway about bringing Millie Bobby Brown back for a sequel.
“There’s discussion. I can’t really say. It’d be crazy of me to say.” He added, “Well, I hope I’d have the energy for that, yeah. That would be amazing. Someone’s going to have the energy for it! It’d be wonderful to get five more movies out of this scene. I do think they’re extraordinary stories to tell, and what a period. As you go forward, things like that three-wheeled car—which was a lovely thing we discovered — to find our characters playing on some of the new contraptions, at some point in the early 20th century. Of course, we get airplanes and the Wright brothers. Who knows what other challenges are going to come out of this really restless, productive period.”
There are six books in the Enola Holmes series to adapt, and plenty of material left to create as Sherlock’s little sister plans to escape from her brother’s shadow and establish herself as a leading detective. Netflix will make sure that it happens soon given the rapid success of the first movie.
