Failure isn't always bad, as Tom Holland will show you.

Holland has himself and a failed pitch for him to star as young James Bond to thank for his role in the upcoming Uncharted movie.

A few years ago, the young Hollywood actor had a meeting around the time of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

He explained that he went to Sony to "pitch this idea of a young Bond film" that he had come up with.

Although he admitted that his idea "didn't make sense", it was enough to spark the idea for a "Nathan Drake story as an origin story."

Now, here we are, and Uncharted is finally set to premiere on February 18.
