The new James Bond film, which up until now has been known as ‘Bond 25’, finally has a title – “No Time to Die”. We also learned that it will be in theatres next April, according to a press release from the film’s producers announced on Tuesday.
“No Time to Die” was initially scheduled to arrive in movie theatres in November, 2019, but that date was pushed back to 2020 after Britain’s Danny Boyle pulled out as director and was replaced by American Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Filming for the new movie got underway in Jamaica last April when producers announced that Oscar winner Rami Malek had been cast to play the villain in the latest entry of the British spy franchise. Daniel Craig confirmed in 2017 that he would return for the fifth time as secret agent 007.
Producers said on Tuesday that the new film would see James Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service before an old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help. Specifically, Bond is compelled to embark on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The film is also being shot in London, Italy and Norway and actors reprising their roles will include Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.
