In a recent episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Holland was plugging his most recent endeavor, “Uncharted,” and Seth Meyers asked him about how he wanted to play a young version of the British spy and had a big idea for a new movie.
The actor then explained his unsuccessful James Bond movie pitch, saying, “It didn’t work out quite as planned … Essentially, I’m such a big fan of James Bond, and, you know, I’ve loved Daniel Craig’s movies. And I just thought, if they were to move on, it would be really exciting to see how James Bond becomes James Bond. So I pitched this idea for a movie, which is kind of a stupid idea where, essentially, you wouldn’t tell the audience that it was a James Bond movie until the end. But from a marketing point of view, that’s a nightmare. Like that just doesn’t make any sense.”
Both Holland and Meyers joked that even if this movie was somehow made, Holland would ruin it, poking some fun at Holland’s habit of inadvertently spoiling movies. Holland jokingly agreed, and said that he would immediately tell everybody he was cast as Bond on Twitter, and basically destroy his own super-spy twist.
