James Bond: Daniel Craig on No Time To Die ending - ‘It was really very, very satisfying'

  James Bond: Daniel Craig on No Time To Die ending - ‘It was really very, very satisfying' JAMES BOND star Daniel Craig has spoken out on his controversial final scene in No Time To Die, alongside 007 producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.No Time To Die saw Craig's Bond dying in a missile strike on Safin's island after making sure that his lover Madeleine Swann and their daughter Mathilde were safely off.

Tom Holland has revealed that he tried and failed to pitch a young James Bond movie that would've served as an origin story. In a sort of weird way, his pitch wasn’t a total failure. According to Holland , his interest in doing the Bond origin story is what made Sony consider adapting the blockbuster Uncharted video game series. The actor said, “The idea of a young Bond sparked this idea, in turn, that you could do a Nathan Drake story as an origin story, rather than as an addition to the games.

Without Tom Holland and his charming relationship with the higher-ups at Sony, Spider-Man: No Way Home may have never happened, with the world losing out on the current cinematic juggernaut that’s in circulation. However, even when those charms don’t work as they’re intended, the results can still be a net positive. No story points this out better than the time Holland tried to be a young James Bond, but ended up becoming a young Nathan Drake in the Uncharted prequel.

How James Bond Helped Tom Holland Land His Uncharted Lead

As he discussed his upcoming video game adaptation with Total Film, the current Spider-Man revealed that he made a confident, but failed pitch to put his own spin on 007. While that suggestion didn’t work out, it did help his studio partner crack just how to approach the film adaptation of the Playstation best seller. After years of development hell, Uncharted finally had its way forward, as described by Mr. Holland below:

  Tom Holland Speaks Out Against 'Ridiculous' Height Double Standard The Spider-Man actor (and short king) doesn't think it's an issue that co-star Zendaya is taller than him , calling the idea "ridiculous." The conversation happened after Shaw brought up their kiss in Far From Home. Zendaya described it as a "sweet moment," and said she was happy that they didn't try to "cheat" by framing the scene so that Holland appeared taller than her.Their co-star Jacob Batalon summed up the discussion even more succinctly, saying: "It's not a weird thing for women to be tall.

Now, in an interview with Total Film, Holland reveals that this final iteration of the Uncharted movie actually started with a very different idea. The actor describes having approached Sony executives with a pitch for a James Bond origin Given that fans of the video games seem to be somewhat nervous about the decision to make a prequel instead of adapt the source material directly, it's unclear whether they will embrace Holland as Nathan Drake. Indeed, following the release of the trailer, there was chatter online that one-time

Tom Holland reveals he pitched Sony a young James Bond movie and ended up playing the lead role in Uncharted instead . Bond franchise ended up with him headlining next month’s blockbuster video game adaptation Uncharted . In an interview with Total Film , Holland admitted that he pitched Sony the idea for an origin story revolving around cinema’s most famous secret agent, but when Eon Productions greeted him with silence, it somehow morphed into becoming Nathan Drake’s live-action debut instead .

As his drunken phone call that saved the Spider-Man franchise proved, Tom Holland has a way with helping smooth over difficult situations. Uncharted’s history of stumbling blocks counts as another one of those cases, with the actor unintentionally providing a novel solution that solved the problem. Director Ruben Fleischer’s would-be February blockbuster wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Holland’s “young Bond” pitch, which in itself is another intriguing story to be told.

Why Tom Holland’s Young Bond Pitch Didn’t Worked Out

Though he’ll be playing Nathan Drake to Mark Wahlberg’s Victor Sullivan in his next big screen adventure, Tom Holland was trying to approach a role that any actor would be crazy not to pursue. Rather than put himself up as the successor to Daniel Craig’s run as James Bond, Holland's idea was a bit more avant garde. The finer details of his Bond pitch are all you need to see why this idea never got off the ground:

The search for the next James Bond following Daniel Craig’s exit after “No Time to Die” will begin later this year, but it turns out “Spider-Man” actor Tom Holland already tried to pitch where 007 should go next. Speaking to Total Film magazine ahead of the release of Sony’s video game adaptation “Uncharted,” Holland revealed he pitched the studio on a James Bond origin story movie in which the world’s most famous spy would be a young man just starting out in the world of high-stakes espionage. “It was the origin story of James Bond . It didn’t really make sense.

Spider-Man star Tom Holland has long been one of the (many) names swirling in James Bond fandom circles as franchise bosses prepare to replace outgoing 007 Daniel Craig with a new leading man for the next chapter. In a new interview with Total Film , the British actor revealed he once pitched an idea for a “ young Bond ” movie to film bigwigs. “I had a meeting, after or during Spider-Man [Far from Home], with Sony to pitch this idea of a young Bond film that I’d come up with,” the Peter Parker star said.

A “young Bond” reboot might seem like a solution for the future of EON Productions’ historic film franchise. Since the Craig era ended with 007’s death, an optimal window for a fresh start has presented itself, and there’s no telling what will happen in the next chapter to come. Though that knowledge wasn’t public around the time that Tom Holland cast his hat into the ring, the idea runs contrary to what Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson feel is the right course of action for the Bond series.

Plenty of spinoffs and parallel franchises have been suggested in the world of James Bond, but Broccoli and Wilson have always been focused on keeping one cinematic franchise up and running. For Tom Holland’s idea to work, it almost sounds like a new series would have to be created; one in which we’d see 007’s life at a younger point than we’ve ever seen cinematically. Between a potential for conflicting brands and a lack of interest in developing any characters outside of the mainline series entries, Holland’s idea was never going to work.

Tom Holland Finally Comments About Sharing The Screen With Those Surprise Actors In Spider-Man: No Way Home

  Tom Holland Finally Comments About Sharing The Screen With Those Surprise Actors In Spider-Man: No Way Home Tom Holland sounded off about getting to work with Spider-Man: No Way Home’s surprise actors.To say that Spider-Man: No Way Home is the biggest Spider-Man movie yet wouldn’t be an exaggeration. We can thank the multiverse for this, as due to the spell Doctor Strange cast to make the world forget Tom Holland’s Peter Parker was Spider-Man going haywire, villains from other Spider-Man film series were thrust into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But it didn’t stop there, because as had been repeatedly rumored, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield did indeed reprise their versions of Peter Parker in No Way Home, and Charlie Cox also popped in as Matt Murdock.

Washington [US], January 6 (ANI): The search for the next James Bond following Daniel Craig's exit after 'No Time to Die' would begin later this year, but it turns out actor Tom Holland already tried to pitch where 007 should go next.

With three massively successful “Spider-Man” movies in the can, Tom Holland certainly has the eyes and ears of Sony. As revealed in a feature interview in Total Film (via Games Radar), Holland said it was his pitch for a James Bond origin story that ultimately sparked conversations about the new film, a jungle-spanning adventure co-starring Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas. “I had a meeting, after or during ‘Spider-Man 2’ [‘Far From Home’], with Sony to pitch this idea of a young Bond film that I’d come up with,” Holland said.

Big ideas can sometimes peter out when they’re discussed in a room, but as we’ve seen above, they can lead to large happenings of their own. Tom Holland's aspirations of being a young Bond may be dashed for now, but the actor did see a huge swing in his odds to become the next official James Bond. So there's could be another conversation in the near future that once again gives him an upper hand he never intended to be dealt.

Thanks to Mr. Holland’s proposal for a young Bond origin story, the Uncharted prequel will finally bring Nathan Drake’s world to the big screen for the first time. You can catch the finished product, only in theaters, on February 18th; provided there isn't a release date change up on the horizon. For now, you can definitely see Tom Holland on the big screen in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

No Time To Die Is Heading Back To Theaters For James Bond's 60th Anniversary, But What About All The Other 007 Films? .
If you missed No Time To Die's theatrical experience, a very special re-release is coming, in honor of James Bond's 60th anniversary. But could other Bond movies get the same treatment?Per an announcement by MGM and the official social media outlets for the James Bond brand, No Time To Die is now confirmed to be heading back to select IMAX theaters on Friday, January 21st. As of this moment, this is purely a large format affair, which makes absolute sense. Being the first Bond film to actually film sequences with IMAX cameras and film, giving fans who may have missed this gargantuan experience another spin at the wheel is only fair.
