Bond 25 Title Revealed As No Time To Die, As Release Date Is Confirmed

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond in the franchise's latest instalment.

The upcoming James Bond film will be called No Time To Die, it has been announced.

Bosses have also revealed the movie’s official release date, confirming it will be out in UK cinemas on 3 April 2020.

The news was announced on the official 007 Twitter account with a short video featuring Bond actor Daniel Craig.

The film sees Bond having left active service and enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.

However, things soon change when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help.

A mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading 007 onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

No Time To Die is currently filming in the UK, Jamaica and locations around Europe, and will be Daniel Craig’s final outing as the titular secret agent.

While a number of his regular co-stars are to return for the next film, including Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, there are several new additions to the cast.

These include recent Oscar winner Rami Malek, best known for his star turn in the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, who has confirmed he’ll be playing the latest adversary to 007.

Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch and Game Night actor Billy Magnussen are also joining.

Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been brought on board as a writer, and previously said she is hoping to make the film’s female characters feel more well-rounded.

The movie, which is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, has been beset by issues in recent months, with a “controlled explosion” damaging the outside of the famous 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire earlier this year, leaving a crew member injured.

No-one working inside the studio was hurt, but one crew member outside suffered a “minor injury”.

Filming also had to be delayed when Daniel was injured while filming in Jamaica, forcing the actor, 51, to undergo “minor ankle surgery”.
