Henry Cavill will compete with Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch for the title of the best Sherlock Holmes. The publication of Variety reported that the actor will join the star of “Godzilla 2” Milli Bobby Brown and Helene Bonham Carter in the film about Sherlock’s younger sister Enola Holmes.

The director of the series “Killing Eve” Harry Bradbier and the scriptwriter of “The Miracle” Jack Thorn adapt the series of books by Nancy Springer about the girl-detective story “Secrets of Enola Holmes”. The main role in the film will be performed by Millie Bobby Brown, her mother will play Helena Bonham Carter, and the image of Sherlock Holmes himself will be taken over by Henry Cavill (who will be the most muscular detective in history). Brown, 15, will also be one of the project’s producers. According to Variety, the shooting process has already started.

Henry Cavill had a short break between shots, as only recently the production of the first Witcher season came to an end. Streaming service Netflix has not yet disclosed the release date of the series, but fans have certain guidelines. An anonymous source on the portal Recapped reported that the first episodes of the series will be available from December 20. “They say that the show has already been extended for the second season and filming will start in January 2020,” the insider added.
