Tom Holland is one of the most valued actors in the industry right now and he is now being considered to be a part of the remake of Atlantis.
With his role of Peter Parker/Spiderman, Tom Holland is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men. And today, we bring to you the news that Tom Holland is being eyed for a role in Disney's remake of 'Atlantis: The Lost Empire'. Expectedly enough, Disney is going to stick fairly close to the animated film and it looks like Holland is being eyed to play the role of geeky Smithsonian cartographer Milo Thatch, a character that was initially played by Michael J. Fox in the 2001 animated version.
While it seems like the live-action remake of the movie is a strange plan for Disney, it could actually be one of the best ideas they have had as of now. The Mouse House has already made live-action remakes of movies such as The Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast, so it does not come as a surprise that Disney is taking a chance to reboot some of their lesser-known animated adventures such as 'Atlantis: The Lost Empire', 'Lilo & Stitch', and 'Treasure Planet'.
After all, these are the three movies that have worked way better in a live-action format and even though the live-action movie of 'Lilo and Stitch' was not that great, I don't think the fans of Disney will turn down a chance to watch the remake of this adorable tale. The original animated movie centered around the story of the museum cartographer named Milo Thatch who becomes the main clue in the way of unraveling an ancient mystery when he joins up with a group of daredevil explorers who are set to find the legendary lost empire of Atlantis.
Apart from Michael. J Fox, the original animated adventure featured the voice-work of Corey Burton as Moliere, Claudia Christian as Helga, James Garner as Rourke, John Mahoney as Preston Whitmore, Phil Morris as Dr. Sweet, and Leonard Nimoy as the Atlantean King. Later on, Don Novello joined the team as Vinny, along with Jacqueline Obradors as Audrey, Florence Stanley as Mrs. Packard, David Ogden Stiers as Mr. Harcourt, Cree Summer as Princess Kida, and Jim Varney as Cookie.
The movie was directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise and produced by Don Hahn. The screenwriter was Tab Murphy. The epic background score of the movie was given by James Newton and was edited by Ellen Keneshea and Buena Vista Pictures released the movie worldwide on June 15, 2001. The director of the live-action remake is rumored to be Jon Favreau
