It's more high school.
The 13-year-old has inked a deal to produce and star in a feature film series based on Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes Mysteries novel series, according to Deadline. That is until mom suddenly disappears, and it's left to young Enola to solve the mystery. Numerous classic characters from Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories also appear in the novels, and all three of the Holmes siblings play a role in the sixth and final book, The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye.
The project will be bankrolled by Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes under the banner of Legendary Entertainment.
While it's somewhat unusual for the stars of the underaged set to have their own production company, it's not unheard of either. Not only have we had Benedict Cumberbatch's BBC TV series and Guy Ritchie's movies with Robert Downey Jr.in the past ten years, but there's also a comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly - titled Holmes and Watson - coming this November.
