Introducing Tom Holland’s Bizarre Video Game Movie

Holland has been put in the hot seat for his interview with GameSpot when asked what video game movie he would make if he received a blank check for the project. Holland replied, “I would like to do a Jak and Daxter movie, and I would play Jak, but I would do it at A24, so it was really weird and dark.” While that’s probably not the answer the interviewer was expecting, Holland might actually have something to do with his pitch. While A24 has yet to dip its toes into the gaming market, instead vying for the bizarre, art-driven projects like “The Lighthouse” or “The Green Knight,” the gaming industry has no shortage of no great stories waiting to be adapted into films.

The “Jak and Daxter” series definitely has its weird moments, featuring a silent protagonist and a loud-mouthed anthropomorphic companion in the first title and getting even weirder as the series progresses. Across the “Jak and Daxter” franchise, players encounter time travel, soothsayers, talking monkey birds, ruthless dictators, “Mad Max” wastelands, monsters, and magic in the form of “Eco” . There’s a lot of weird stuff going on in the “Jak and Daxter” games, and the right studio could do the classic video game series justice.

Although it appears Holland’s comments were little more than a knee-jerk response during an interview, the “Uncharted” star’s dreamy speech might have some value.
