Currently shooting, producers Eon Productions have uncharacteristically been holding off on announcing what will be the 25th installment in the long running franchise.
While the early films in the series took their names from the James Bond novels and short stories written by Bond’s literary creator Ian Flemming, more recent entries had to go and coin original titles that still felt, for lack of a better term, “Bond-ian.” Death and specifically the word “Die” have featured in a number of previous James Bond film titles such as Live and Let Die, Tomorrow Never Dies, A View To A Kill and License To Kill. This new title fits in rather nicely.
Daniel Craig is the latest actor to star as the suave British secret agent, though by all reports this film could be his swan song for the franchise. The film also stars Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, and Ana de Armas.
The film is being directed by Cary Fukunaga, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Z Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
No Time To Die is set for an April 8, 2020 release in the US.
