The 25th James Bond film has confirmed its title, No Time to Die. The announcement came from the official 007 Twitter account, which also confirmed Daniel Craig’s return to the franchise as its protagonist. The film will premiere April 3rd, 2020, in the U.K. and April 8th in the U.S.
Bond 25 is the first 007 to shoot with imax cameras
It’s safe to assume that the action-packed events of the film won’t leave much time for Craig to perish. Written by a team that includes longtime Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, as well as Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns and Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the film opens with James happily enjoying retirement in Jamaica, the 007 moniker having been passed along to a new agent, played by Captain Marvel breakout star, Lashana Lynch. But the arrival of a new threat in the form of Oscar-winner Rami Malek pushes Bond off the beach and back into action.
The production of No Time To Die has seen its share of setbacks including a sound stage explosion at Pinewood Studios and Craig suffering an ankle injury that required surgery and convalescence. All the while the release dates have stayed on track.
