James Bond 25 has got its title. The latest adventure for Daniel Craig as the British Secret agent will be called No Time To Die.
James Bond 25, which will arrive in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020, is to be called No Time To Die.
Principle photography on No Time To Die got under way in the spring in Jamaica. The film’s producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, confirmed the start date at a special event at “GoldenEye” in Jamaica, the once-home of James Bond creator Ian Fleming where he created the eponymous character in 1952.
Cary Fukunaga, the director of the award-winning Beasts of No Nation, will direct following Danny Boyle’s departure. The American director, who executive produced and directed the brilliant HBO series True Detective, was the James Bond producers’ favoured choice due to his “versatility and innovation”.
What little is known of the plot involves Bond, having left active service, trying to live a tranquil life in the West Indies. His peace is interrupted when old friend Felix Leiter turns up saying the CIA needs his help. His mission, which involves him finding a kidnapped scientist, leads him to Malek’s villain who is armed with dangerous new technology.
Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, Jeffrey Wright and Ben Whishaw are all returning in their respective roles alongside Daniel Craig and newcomers Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek
James Bond 25 is released in the UK and internationally on April 3, 2020.
