After securing the role of Spider-Man, it looks like big things are in store for young Tom Holland. In what is sure to be just one of many high-profile gigs to come, the actor has landed a part in James Gray’s The Lost City of Z, which already has Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Charlie Hunnam attached.
The details of Holland’s role have yet to be revealed, but production is already underway in Belfast, Northern Ireland and will continue there before it moves to Colombia. From what we know about the plot, it will follow Percy Fawcett, “a conscripted soldier and born explorer who disappeared in the 1920s while searching for a mythical city in the Amazon jungles of Brazil that he believed he discovered on a prior expedition.”
Though we don’t know how big a part Holland will play here, it’s definitely nice to see him balancing out his Marvel commitments with less commercial projects. It’s a smart move, and signing onto a film directed by James Gray certainly puts him in good company, not to mention the strong cast he’ll be working with, which is a definite bonus.
If all goes according to plan, you’ll be able to travel to The Lost City of Z some time in 2016. We’ll keep you posted once we’ve got an exact release date, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of Holland’s casting in the comments below.
