Tom Holland and Chris Pratt are reportedly pegged to star in the Jak and Daxter movie adaptation.
That’s according to film industry leaker MyTimeToShineHello, who has a reliable track record of reporting on Marvel-related movie news. Holland is being prepped as Jak, while Pratt is being “eyed” to voice Daxter.
Additionally, MyTimeToShineHello said Uncharted movie director Ruben Fleischer will be directing this adaptation.
Fleischer first revealed he was working on a Jak and Daxter adaptation back in 2022. In February of last year, the director said he believed this series would be “really cool to bring to life”. And, of course, he has experience of working with Holland, who starred in Uncharted as protagonist Nathan Drake.
Perhaps coincidentally, Holland has previously suggested he would be keen to take on the role of Jak in any Jak and Daxter adaptation. Last year, the actor stated he would like to see “a really weird and dark” live-action version of the games told.
Pratt, meanwhile, is no stranger to voicing video game characters, having provided his vocal stylings to Mario in this year’s blockbuster hit, The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
Holland and Pratt have worked together previously, with the duo voicing brothers in Disney Pixar’s fantasy animation Onward.
Eurogamer has asked Sony for comment.
