Production is officially wrapped on the 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die.
The official James Bond Twitter account has confirmed that production on No Time To Die has reached its end. The announcement came a photo of director Cary Fukunaga on set with Danie Craig, who is dressed to the nines as usual for his final day of filming. Unless there are reshoots on No Time To Die, this announcement and photo represent the final moments that Craig will have played Bond.
The film was originally planned for release on November 8, 2019, before director Danny Boyle left the project. The release date was then pushed back to February 2020 and then again one final time to April 2020, following Fukunaga’s involvement and necessary rewrites.
Craig has stated in the past that No Time to Die will see his last performance as the British secret agent, which has led to several debates among the franchise’s fanbase and general audiences about who the next Bond should be and how future films should reshape the decades-old franchise.
Directed and co-written by Cary Fukunaga, No Time to Die stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek. It is scheduled for release on April 8, 2020.
