“I had a meeting, after or during ‘Spider-Man 2’ [‘Spider Man: Far From Home’], with Sony to pitch this idea of a young Bond film that I’d come up with,” Holland said. “It was the origin story of James Bond. It didn’t really make sense. It didn’t work. It was the dream of a young kid, and I don’t think the Bond estate [was] particularly interested.”Uncharted: Extended clip teases Nathan hanging out of a plane

What’s interesting to note, that his idea didn’t fail completely as Holland’s origin story nudge is what prompted Sony in the direction of adapting the blockbuster video game series Uncharted.

In Uncharted, Tom Holland stars as Nathan Drake opposite Mark Wahlberg as Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer. The film also stars Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas.
