Tom to star in ‘Beneath A Scarlet Sky’

Tom to star in ‘Beneath A Scarlet Sky’

EXCLUSIVE: Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal and star Tom Holland have found another film on which to collaborate. Pascal Pictures’ Pascal and Rachel O’Connor have acquired film rights to the Mark Sullivan novel Beneath A Scarlet Sky, with Holland attached to play the lead role. This comes on a week when the book emerged as a top seller on the Amazon lists.

It is the story of a forgotten WWII hero. Pino Lella is a normal Italian teenager living an idyllic life in Italy, until bombs begin falling on Milan and word of Nazi atrocities begin to circulate. While waiting to join the fight, Lello joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, guiding hundreds of Jews to safety in a year. On his 18th birthday, Lello is forced to enlist with the German Army, and is immediately assigned as a personal driver to Adolf Hitler’s left hand, General Hans Leyers. This fly on the wall in the upper echelons of the Third Reich positions him to be recruited by the Allies as a spy. Known to Allied Intelligence only as “Observer,” Lella endures the horrors of WWII and the Nazi occupation by secretly feeding intel to the Allies that was strategically important enough to turn the tides of the war. When Lella’s courage falters, he is bolstered by his love for a young woman named Anna, and for the life he dreams they will one day share.

Pascal and O’Connor will produce and Averie Huffine found the project and will shepherd it. The author was a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa and was an investigative journalist who now writes books including five collaborations with James Patterson. He heavily research the saga, but it was published as a novel because so many of the records were destroyed. Lella just celebrated his 91st birthday, and he lives in Milan, Italy. His estate is managed by his son Michael.

Tom talks growing pains & life lessons from Robert Downey Jr

Tom talks growing pains & life lessons from Robert Downey Jr

Tom Holland is contemplating how has changed since becoming the youngest actor ever to pull on a Spider-Man suit. “It’s crazy,” he says, nonplussed. “Crazier than I thought it would be.

Tired after a late night and a gruelling press tour, the 21-year-old is nevertheless upbeat, cheerful and enjoying every moment of the newfound mania that is surrounding his every move. He explains that Spider-Man’s alter-ego Peter Parker has become his role model because

“his life changes too but he stays true to himself. It’s very important to me that I stay the same as I was before this crazy thing happened to me.”

We are talking a few hours before the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, during which thousands of screaming fans shut down Hollywood Boulevard. Holland, from Kingston-Upon-Thames, was accompanied to the premiere by a family entourage which included his mother, two grandmothers, two great-grandparents and his cousin.

“My mum brought them all over, which is so lovely,” he says.

His best friend and 18-year-old younger brother Harry, who have accompanied him on his travels by private jet around the world, were also there. The only close family member absent was his father, the comedian Dominic Holland, who is currently appearing at the Edinburgh Festival.

USA Today: Homecoming takes Spider-Man back to school

USA Today: Homecoming takes Spider-Man back to school

ATLANTA — Spider-Man is dealing with a situation he’s never had before on the big screen: remembering the corsage for his homecoming date. It’s a muggy August night and Tom Holland, the new Spidey who made his debut in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, is sitting in a rusty burgundy Volvo with Marisa Tomei in front of a cushy home. It’s a major scene being filmed for Spider-Man: Homecoming (in theaters Thursday night), and Holland’s Peter Parker is being dropped off by his Aunt May (Tomei) for his first date with longtime crush Liz (Laura Harrier).


This is a 15-year-old kid who has stolen Cap’s iconic shield and pretty much single-handedly took down Giant-Man, so sliding a flower on a girl’s wrist shouldn’t be that nerve-wracking, right? But Homecoming is breaking from the five previous Spidey movies by focusing more on the travails of being a teenager than battling the supervillain du jour. (Though Holland’s fresh-faced web slinger has one of those, too.)

Tom puts some zing into his web-slinging

Tom puts some zing into his web-slinging

It’s commonly mistaken that British actor Tom Holland is the third person to play a live-action Spider-Man on the screen. Let’s see, there was Tobey Maguire, who did it three times; then Andrew Garfield, who did two more entries in the franchise. But everyone forgets that there was also a small screen Spidey: Nicholas Hammond played him for two seasons on the CBS series “The Amazing Spider-Man” in the late-1970s.

Now that that’s straightened out, here we go again, with 21-year-old Holland taking over the role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which opens on July 7. It’s actually his second outing in the part, since he was introduced as an excitable young protegee to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) last year in “Captain America: Civil War,” finally bringing the Spider-Man character into the film world of the Marvel Universe, where he could interact with other Avengers.

Holland isn’t quite the new kid in town as far as acting experience. Most viewers first saw him 5 years ago when he was the older son of Naomi Watts in the tsunami drama “The Impossible.” He went on to play the starving and thirsty cabin boy in Ron Howard’s whale movie “In the Heart of the Sea.” Earlier this year he was seen as the son of jungle explorer Charlie Hunnam in “The Lost City of Z.
