Tom Holland recalls pitching a James Bond origin film that’s been rejected

The search for the next James Bond will begin later this year, following Daniel Craig’s departure after “No Time to Die,” but “Spider-Man” actor Tom Holland has already made suggestions for where 007 could travel next.

The 25-year-old Spider-Man: No Way Home star recalls presenting his idea for a youthful 007 film to Sony in an interview with Total Film. Despite the fact that the concept was not acquired, it led to his being cast as Nathan Drake with Mark Whalberg in the upcoming video motion comic Uncharted. “After or during Spider-Man 2 [Far From Home], I had a meeting with Sony to propose this idea for a young Bond picture that I’d come up with. It was James Bond’s origin narrative “According to Variety, Holland stated. “It didn’t make a lot of sense. It was a complete failure. It was a young boy’s dream, and I don’t believe the Bond estate was very interested.”

He went on to say, “The prospect of a young Bond picture sparked the idea that a Nathan Drake storyline could be told as a backstory rather than as an add-on to the games. And that sparked a discussion.” Daniel Craig, the most recent actor to play Bond, completed his run in No Time to Die, his fifth and last 007 films, last year.

Meanwhile, Holland co-stars with Mark Wahlberg as Victor “Sully” Sullivan in Ruben Fleischer’s “Uncharted.” The film also stars Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas. The film’s release in the United States on February 18 marks Sony’s first tentpole of the year, as well as a reunion with Holland after the box office success of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

Death Scene In Spider-Man: No Way Home

Tom Holland talks about the shocking death sequence in Spider-Man: No Way Home and how he thinks people will respond when they see it in cinemas.

Holland stars alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Marisa Tomei, and Tony Revolori in the latest entry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman, Rhys Ifans’ Lizard, and Jamie Foxx’s Electro all make their MCU debuts in this picture.

Holland discussed Spider-Man: No Way Home’s unexpected Aunt May death scene in a recent interview with Marvel to discuss the smash film. Holland believes the sequence will definitely gut people who don’t see it coming, as the character is “integral” to the heart of his web-slinging trilogy.
