We had recently reported that Helena Bonham Carter, who was last seen in Ocean's 8, has joined the cast of Legendary Studios' film adaptation of the Enola Holmes books.

Now, we hear that Henry Cavill, best known for playing the Superman in the DC universe, has boarded the film's cast. 

The actor will be playing the character of Sherlock Holmes, while Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown will portray Enola, the fourteen-year-old sister of established detective. Carter will portray Enola's mother in the project.

Written by Nancy Springer, the young adult novels, which follow the life of Enola Holmes, spanned six volumes.

Jack Thorne has penned the film's script, which reportedly borrows characters and settings from the universe of Sherlock Holmes. The film is said to revolve around Enola, who calls upon her elder brother’s help after ascertaining that their mother has vanished. Enola’s sleuthing skills rival Sherlock’s and leads to her solving numerous missing person cases.

Besides Legendary, Brown and her sister, Paige Brown, are producing the film through their banner PCMA Productions.
