Tom Holland and Chris Pratt reported to star as Jak & Daxter in film adaptation

The past few years has seen the number of video games being adapted into other mediums balloon in quantity, with pretty much any and all successful franchises now having a shot at the silver screen. Two celebrities which have not shied away from such opportunities are Tom Holland and Chris Pratt. After portraying Nathan Drake and Mario respectively, the two will seemingly be coming together for a Jak and Daxter film.

As reported by insider ‘MyTimeToShineHello’ the film industry leaker took to Twitter to make the claim, saying “Tom Holland to play Jak, Chris Pratt eyed to voice Daxter in live action Jak and Daxter movie from Sony directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Uncharted).”

While certainly an unconventional pick to play the duo, both actors have as mentioned been in successful video game adaptations (one much more successful than the other). Furthermore, the two have been in a number of projects together including Avengers Infinity War; Endgame and Pixar’s Onwards.

Of course, nothing is confirmed and should all be taken with a pinch of salt until announced by Sony themselves, but it seems as though we will begin to see more and more video game characters being taken over by Hollywood stars.

For a franchise with relatively little cache in today’s day and age, perhaps attaching two massive celebrities to the project will help to boost eyes on Jak & Daxter. We will have to wait and see.
