James Bond’s “No Time To Die” film has been delayed again — and won’t be released until April 2021.
The official James Bond Twitter account wrote: “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of ‘NO TIME TO DIE,’ the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April 2021 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience.”
“We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing ‘NO TIME TO DIE’ next year.”
The latest film was due to hit screens on November 12.
It has been dogged with problems including Daniel getting hurt and COVID-19 delaying its release.
The Sun revealed this week the upcoming movie is Daniel Craig’s last time playing the world’s most famous spy. The actor appeared to have a change of heart earlier this year when it was revealed he told bosses not to make a big deal of it being his last movie as 007, suggesting a change of heart.
But now producer Barbara Broccoli has insisted Daniel has put away his spy gadgets for the last time.
She said: “There’s a few lines that are in the script that Bond fans will love from the books and some wonderful locations that are described in the books. We consider this film to be a classic Bond film but with a modern twist. It’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing, so it’s a culmination of everything his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines.”
“It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.”
Daniel first played Bond in “Casino Royale” in 2006 but after “Spectre” in 2015 he said he would “rather slash my wrists” than play 007 again.
However, in March this year, a movie source said: “I don’t think Daniel is finished with James Bond, despite his previous claims. He was in this same position after Spectre came out, where he said publicly and loudly that he was done and then, as time passed, he just wasn’t.
“There is something about this part that scratches an itch and he’s not prepared to see it go to another actor yet.”
But if Bond fans were disappointed by the comments made by Barbara in the “No Time To Die” podcast, there’s one man who won’t be upset.
Earlier this month, bookmakers stopped taking bets on Tom Hardy to be the next 007.
