Tom Holland fears he won't be available for Jurassic World role

Playing Spider-Man might have cost young Brit Tom Holland the chance to work with his The Impossible director J.a. Bayona on the Jurassic World sequel.

The actor is desperate to work with the Spanish filmmaker again and when Bayona was handed the reins of the dinosaur movie franchise, Tom was hoping to grab a part - no matter how small.


"I want to work with Bayona again," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I keep emailing my agent about it. Even the smallest role, I'll do it."


But he fears his ties to the Marvel universe as Spider-Man might prevent him from taking on a role in another blockbuster.


"They (studio bosses) give you options, and those could be exercised whenever," the young actor adds. "Like a cameo in Avengers. I'm unclear as to which movies, though. I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted.


"But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They're very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other.


"(That said), "I don't know if I'm available for that (Jurassic World). We had a chat one time. There is a role there, but I don't think I'll be available to do it, unfortunately."


And Tom admits Spider-Man is keeping him very busy: "We were about two months into Spider-Man and I said, 'When do I get my break?' They (film bosses) were like, 'You don't'. We had one week where every shot I did was upside-down. It was just brutal."
