For years now, there has been a rumor of Netflix and Nintendo ironing out a deal to create some sort of Legend of Zelda feature. Nothing ever seems to come of it, and the rumblings die down over and over again. Today that speculation has picked up speed once more, and now there's a Hollywood name being floated with the project.
Inside sources that have correctly leaked previous Netflix projects are once again saying that the Legend of Zelda project at Netflix is the real deal. Furthermore, the powers that be apparently want to land Tom Holland for the role of Link. Obviously Netflix and Nintendo aren't going to make a peep about this, and the same goes for Holland.
Earlier this week, Nintendo did say that they're working on more 'visual content expansion projects' beyond the Mario movie, but held back specifics. If there is indeed a Zelda feature in the works at Netflix, it would definitely be a part of this new push.
Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!
