Gear Up For The Upcoming James Bond Film, ‘No Time To Die’

Back in 1967, Sean Connery’s first James Bond movie You Only Live Twice fought with the concept of mortality in its title.

After that, the six other Bond films had titles that relate to life, death or killing, which is the core of every James Bond movie.

The legendary James Bond which stars Daniel Craig will be having its next film on April 3, 2020, the 007 franchise announced on August 20.

Daniel Craig as 007

Craig, best known as 007, is still the dominant character of the 25th cinematic installment of the British spy chronicle. It is already in the making but has faced some problems.

The recent explosion at Britain’s Pinewood Studios in June damaged one of the film sets, which destroyed the stage and caused a minor injury to Craig.

According to a report from The Sun newspaper, a triple blast hit the set after one of the stunts went wrong in Jamaica. It took off part of the building’s roof and severed the wall panels.

Due to the freak accident, Craig, who will play the iconic role for the fifth time, had to undergo minor ankle surgery after the injury.

Other Characters and Delays

Moreover, Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain in the long-awaited movie. Also in the list is the return of Ralph Fiennes as Bond’s boss and French actress Lea Seydoux.

It is also reported that the production has been repeatedly delayed over script disputes.

The delays were also associated with the replacement of Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle by Cary Fukunaga in September.

Possibly Craig’s Final Bond Role

This film can be Craig’s final outing as Bond; hence expectations are high considering as well that breakout star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been brought in to spice up the movie’s script.

“The Bond franchise is absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to. He needs to be true to this character,” commented Waller-Bridge.
