It certainly seems to be raining all-star projects where we recently reported about a mega show with some of the biggest names being roped in. And now, we have another project all set and rolling soon that has a lot of illustrious names being shortlisted. From the likes of Henry Cahill to Helena Bonham Carter and Millie Bobby Brown, the cast of an upcoming show is being finalized.
According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Fiona Shaw, who recently won a BAFTA for her work in the acclaimed assassin series, Killing Eve, has joined the high-profile cast of Enola Holmes, Legendary's adventure project based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries book series by Nancy Springer.
Harry Bradbeer is directing.
Springer's book series, which began with The Case of the Missing Marquess in 2006, comprises six books and tells the tale of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes' much younger sister, Enola, who turns out to be a highly capable detective in her own right.
Brown is playing Enola Holmes while Cavill will portray Sherlock Holmes and Bonham Carter will play Enola's mother, according to sources.
Character details for Shaw are being kept under the deerstalker.
Jack Thorne wrote the script for the story, which involves a missing teen whose father has been murdered.
Legendary is producing with Brown and her sister, Paige Brown, via the duo's PCMA Productions shingle. Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes will oversee the project for Legendary.
