Daniel Craig 'P***ed Off' About Claims New James Bond Film No Time To Die Is 'Cursed'

The latest 007 film's release was recently postponed amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Daniel Craig was in no mood to discuss whether or not his final James Bond film was “cursed” when the suggestion was put to him during a recent interview.

It’s not unfair to say that there have been a fair few issues in the lead-up to No Time To Die’s release, beginning back in 2018, when original director Danny Boyle quit the project.

Since then, leading man Daniel Craig was forced to take two weeks off from filming due to injury, while a crew member later sustained a “minor injury” when an on-set explosion went awry.

The release of No Time To Die has now been postponed by seven months following the coronavirus outbreak, but in an interview conducted before the announcement, Daniel was quick to shoot down claims the film is “cursed”.

It pisses me off,” he told GQ, on the subject of tabloid reports calling the film “cursed”. “Because I’m just like, ‘Don’t curse our movie.’ And also, we’re doing our best here.”

No Time To Die is the 25th film in the James Bond saga, and will be Daniel’s last in the role.

Because of this, Daniel also revealed to GQ that he has taken a more hands-on approach behind the scenes, which included him pushing to have Phoebe Waller-Bridge brought in as a co-writer.

He explained: “This is my last movie. I’ve kept my mouth shut before and I’ve stayed out of it and I’ve respected it and I’ve regretted that I did.

“I’ve been very forceful in meetings and often way too blunt and probably completely rude… But I’m like, We’re here! Come on! And I always say sorry.”

Originally slated for release next month, No Time To Die will now hit cinemas in November.

Joining Daniel in the film will be returning stars like Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, as well as newcomers like Rami Malek, who plays the secret agent’s new adversary, and Lasha Lynch, who plays the successor to James Bond as the holder of the 007 codename.
