Around his “Spider-Man: Far From Home” days, Holland introduced the story of a young James Bond, which became his latest adventure film.
With three great successes”SpidermanFilm in cans, Tom Holland definitely have eyes and ears Sony. Following the studio’s billion-dollar box office take for “No Way Home” to date, Holland will next release an action adventure.Not detected yetOn February 11th. As revealed in an interview on Total Film (via Game Radar), Holland said it was his pitch to a James Bond story that finally sparked conversations about the new film, a jungle adventure starring Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas.
“I had a meeting, after or during ‘Spider-Man 2’ [‘Far From Home’], with Sony to introduce the idea of a young Bond movie that I wanted to come up with,” said Holland. “It was the origin story of James Bond. It doesn’t really make sense. It doesn’t work. It’s a kid’s dream, and I don’t think Bond’s estate gets any special attention. “
A James Bond story is yet to be made, although Daniel Craig has just finished playing 007 in “No Time to Die”.
However, while the idea of James Bond didn’t work out, Holland said there was something there in those conversations. “The idea of a young Bond movie sparked this idea that, in turn, you could make a story about Nathan Drake as an origin story, rather than as an addition to the game. And that opened up a conversation.”
Nathan Drake is the fictional protagonist of the “Uncharted” universe, which began as a series of video games developed by Naughty Dog. His looks and personality as a good-natured treasure hunter were inspired by a combination of Johnny Knoxville, Harrison Ford, and pulp magazine heroes.
Holland has been busy with a press tour for both “Spider-Man” and “Uncharted” returns. Recently, he sent Martin Scorsese on a mission disparaging Marvel movies as real art. “You can ask [Martin] Scorsese ‘Do you want to make a Marvel movie?’ But he didn’t know what it was like because he never made it,” Holland told THR. “I’ve done Marvel movies, and I’ve also made movies that are already in conversation in the world of the Oscars, and only the difference, really, is that one is much more expensive than the other. But the way I break down the characters, the way the director portrays the plot and the characters – it’s all the same, just done on a different scale. So I think they are real art. ”
“Uncharted” is directed by “Zombieland” filmmaker Ruben Fleischer.
