No Time to Die, Mr Bond
It has been announced this year that Daniel Craig will return as James Bond 007 in ‘No Time To Die’, releasing April 3 2020 in the UK.
The story follows Bond, on leave from MI6 under active service as a 00 agent, hanging up his holster and his Walther PPK to enjoy a peaceful life away from the world of espionage in Jamaica. However, despite driving off with his current love interest, Madeleine Swann, in his iconic Aston Martin DB5 through the streets of London at the end of ‘Spectre’ (the record-breaking 24th Bond thriller and Daniel Craig’s 4th outing as 007), his friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter, later calls James again to help him with a case of a kidnapped scientist, which leads to a ‘treacherous threat’.
Fun Fact – 007 Producer Cubby Broccoli produced a war thriller in 1958 called ‘No Time To Die’, with 1st Bond Director Terence Young, who worked on three 007 films with Sean Connery, ‘Dr No, ‘From Russia With Love’ & Thunderball’
The 25th official James Bond film was announced in April 2019, including its cast, crew and the release month of the next 007 adventure from MGM Studios and Universal Pictures. The cast this time round includes Daniel Craig as James Bond ‘007’, Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. Other cast members include Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Ana De Armas, Billy Magnussen and David Dencik, whose roles will soon be revealed by the producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. The film is to be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the first American director in the Bond canon and to direct Mr Craig into the hands of his next deadly opponent.
So can the man with a license to kill leave us both shaken and stirred on his mission to put a stop to this latest threat, and potentially his most dangerous enemy yet? Well, I guess we’ll find out when the much-anticipated action thriller hits our screens next year.
