Although some movie sets have been allowed to reopen again after the lockdown rules were relaxed, the long-waited James Bond movies, No Time To Die seemed to once again set the new date of November 25th back in March.
According to a report from The Sun on Thursday, the producers decided to move the release date because they were feared losing money at the box office, as the numbers of COVID-19 cases in the US have made film executives concerned about how many people would be able to see it.
“There are secret talks about what to do. Having No Time To Die earning less than half a billion would be deemed a disaster no matter the circumstances.”
The official Twitter account of the film producer read: “The return of old friends in NO TIME TO DIE. In cinemas 12th November UK, 20th November US!”
This will mark as the last movie Daniel Craig starred in as the iconic 007 character. He said: “I’m really… I’m OK. I don’t think I would have been if I’d done the last film and that had been it. But this, I’m like… Let’s go. Let’s get on with it. I’m fine.”
Daniel then went on sharing that he didn’t care much about his own career after no longer playing James Bond.
He said: “I’m pretty sure I can play just about anything. Yeah. I’m pretty sure I can, or at least I can make a f**king good fist of it.”
Daniel had more roles involved in the writing of the new movie than he has been in the past, including having Phoebe Waller-Bridge brought on board to tweak the script.
Producers are also reportedly making a spin-off based on the spy’s recently-discovered daughter, penned by the Killing Eve’ scribe Phoebe.
