'No Time to Die', AKA Bond 25, Wraps Shooting

  • No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film and the fifth starring Daniel Craig as 007, has finally wrapped shooting.

  • The film has run into many obstacles along the way to the finish line.

  • A quick recap: Bond 25 was scheduled to start filming in 2018 with Danny Boyle directing (ONTD post), but after several months, he was fired due to creative differences (ONTD post) and Cary Fukunaga was hired (ONTD post). Several months later, the cast was revealed, with many returning stars (Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Lea Seydoux and Rory Kinnear) and several newcomers to the Bond franchise, like Rami Malek, Ana De Armas, Billy Magnussen, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik and Lashana Lynch. We also learned that there are four credited writers on the film, including Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge. (ONTD post)

  • Once shooting began, Daniel Craig injured his ankle and had to have surgery (ONTD post), and then an explosion at a soundstage went wrong, causing damage and injuring a crew member (ONTD post).

  • Barring any further catastrophe, Bond is set for an April 2020 release.
