According to a report from Deadline, the actress has a deal with Legendary Entertainment to star and produce a movie based on Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes Mysteries. Sherlock and Mycroft, Enola's long-absent, much-older brothers, arrive and assure her that they will look into the disappearance; she will be sent away to boarding school. The 13-year-old will not only star as Enola Holmes-precocious, mystery-solving little sister to Sherlock Holmes-but also produce through her PCMA Productions banner. The series covers six novels, and has been nominated for an Edgar Award.

Although Enola doesn't exist in Arthur Conan Doyle's original Holmes works, Springer's books lean heavily on Doyle's canon and characters: for instance, after arriving in London, Enola runs into Inspector Lestrade, who is on his way to help Sherlock with a case.
