Tom Holland wanted to trace the youth of James Bond; the producers refused

The British actor, now 25 years old and already four times Spider-Man, saw himself in the skin of a more dashing 007 and more in tune with the times. His idea obviously did not appeal to Barbara Broccoli, the boss of Eon Productions.

Tom Holland, – already four times Spider-Man on the big screen at 25 – offered his services to Sony and therefore indirectly to the boss of Eon Production Barbara Broccoli by presenting them with a rejuvenated version of the character of 007. According to his own As reported by the English site Total Film, the response was clear and unambiguous: “No !“.

Tom Holland has described in detail how he presented his rejuvenated vision of the invincible secret agent created almost 70 years ago by Ian Fleming: “I had a meeting with Sony, after or during Spider-Man 2 (Far From Home), to defend my idea of ​​a film about the early years of James Bond. It was a bit of the story of its origins. I think it didn’t make much sense and it didn’t appeal to Sony. And I especially think that it did not please Eon.

However, Tom Holland’s service offer has not completely gone unheeded. His original James Bond gave him the idea to play Nathan Drake, the hero of the film Uncharted inspired by the game franchise of the same name, which chronicles the exploits of a hypermodern explorer descended from Sir Francis Drake, a privateer knighted by Elisabeth ID in the XVIe century.

Uncharted by Ruben Fleischer, who brings together around Tom Holland a prestigious cast made up of Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas and Rudy Pankow, will be released in France on February 16, 2022. As for Tom Holland in the handsome James’ tuxedo, he will have to wait … a little more.
